Penrith Panthers are pleased to announce that young front row forward Reagan Campbell-Gillard has extended his contract with the club until the end of the 2019 season.

The 21-year-old is a local junior and a graduate of the Panthers’ premiership-winning NYC team in 2013. He represented Fiji at international level last year and made his first-grade debut for Penrith earlier this season. He was subsequently selected to play for the NSW City Origin side.

"Reagan has already shown outstanding potential," Panthers Executive General Manager rugby league Phil Gould AM said.

"I have full confidence in him developing into a representative-class player at higher levels. He’s also a wonderful role model for our local juniors and we feel very privileged to have him at the Panthers.

"It’s just wonderful to see so many of these youngsters now finding their feet in the NRL and they will be a part of our club for many years to come."

Campbell-Gillard said he was delighted to extend his contract with the Panthers.

"It’s extremely exciting for me to commit to the Panthers for another four years," he said.

"It’s the club that first gave me the opportunity to play NRL and it’s the club I want to play at for the rest of my career."
