Penrith fans and players who started a ‘We hate Parra’ chant at the club’s grand final celebration on Monday have been slammed for their ‘ungracious’ behaviour in victory.

After defeating the Eels 28-12 in Sunday night’s grand final, Panthers players fronted up to at Penrith Stadium on Monday morning to present the Provan-Summons Trophy to their fans.

Addressing the 3000 fans in attendance, prop James Fisher-Harris, who appeared to be slightly stuttering and slurring his words, stuck the knife into Parramatta further after their poor performance.

‘I just want to say Parra are our sons. Right here right now that’s just a fact,’ Fisher-Harris said, a reference to a pre-match sledge by half Jarome Luai.

It led fans to begin a ‘We hate Parra’ chant, which Panther players Jaeman Salmon and Liam Martin can be seen joining in on from the stage.
