Penrith Panthers have completed the signing of utility Kurt Capewell on a two-year-deal from Cronulla Sharks.
Capewell, who can play at centre or in the second row, made his Sharks debut back in 2016, and helped them to the NRL title.
Since then, the 25-year-old has made over 60 appearances, scoring six tries.
Capewell told the club website: “I’m really excited to join Panthers and can’t wait to get started.”
“With the coaches and the players here, I think this club will give me a great opportunity to take my game to the next level.
“My focus is to earn a starting role with consistent performances and then help the younger players in the squad find consistency as well.
“I made my NRL debut in Penrith so I already have fond memories of Panthers Stadium. I’m looking forward to being on the home team next year.”
Panthers Head Coach Ivan Cleary added: “Kurt is a quality player and a great team man who was deservedly on the cusp of an Origin debut this year,”
“Considering his age and NRL experience to this point, we’re confident he’s in a position to play the best football of his career here at Panthers.”
