Matt Moylan has been appointed captain of the Panthers ahead of the 2016 NRL season.
Panthers coach Anthony Griffin revealed his selection to a gathering of media at Pepper Stadium on Wednesday morning.
Moylan will be looking to make a major impact in 2016 after recovering from the season-ending ankle injury he suffered in Round 12 last year.
The 24-year-old is a local junior and progressed through the grades at the Panthers before making his NRL debut in Round 7, 2013.
He went on to represent NSW City and the Prime Minister's XIII in 2014, then NSW City and the NRL All Stars in 2015.
