Panthers NRL Coach Ivan Cleary has named Kevin Kingston and Peter Wallace as co-captains for the 2014 season.

Kevin will continue in the role after a successful year as leader in 2013, while Peter, who played out his junior years in Penrith, has very quickly earned the respect of his peers after returning to the club in January.

Coach Cleary says he’s confident both players will lead the team in the right direction.

“Kev and Pete are natural leaders and they have the combined respect of all the boys in the squad. They will be exceptional mentors for our younger players, and they agree with the direction we want to take the team into the future”
