Penrith’s Samoan flyer signs new deal

Penrith have confirmed that Samoan international Brian To’o has signed a new three-year deal with the club.

The 21-year-old burst onto the scene last season, scoring nine tries in 15 games and quickly claiming the right wing spot as his own.

His efforts were rewarded by a maiden international cap for Samoa in November, while he also received the Ben Alexander Rookie of Year Award by his club.

His new deal will see him remain at the Panthers until at least the end of the 2023 season.

To’o featured for Samoa in the World Cup 9s tournament in October.

“I’m really grateful for the opportunities the club has given me and I’m so happy to re-sign,” To’o said. “This new deal means everything to me and my family.

“Growing up in the Penrith district, Panthers has always been my home. Getting the chance to play for Penrith in the NRL is a dream come true.”

Penrith elite player development manager Ben Harden added: “From the moment Brian came into our development system, we knew he had the heart of a lion and possessed this incredible athleticism.

“I was always blown away by his ability to joke around before training and then just turn it on and compete from the first whistle. It’s a credit to Brian and his family how hard he has worked to get himself to where he is now.”
