Ellis signs new Panthers deal

Penrith Panthers is delighted to announce Kaide Ellis has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The contract extension means the 21-year-old prop forward will remain with Panthers until at least the end of the 2020 season.

"I didn't think twice when the opportunity came to re-sign with Panthers," Ellis said.

"This is the club that has helped me become the player I am today and a lot of my best mates are here.

"The direction we're heading as a club is really exciting and I just want to be part of it."

Born and raised in Dubbo, Ellis was a member of the premiership-winning Panthers NYC side in 2015.

Last season he played a key role as the Panthers Intrust Super Premiership NSW side won the Grand Final, and a week later he was named man-of-the-match in the National Championship victory over PNG Hunters.

Ellis made his NRL debut against Gold Coast Titans in Round 6 this year.

"Kaide is a talented and dedicated youngster who has successfully progressed through the Panthers development pathways," Panthers Executive General Manager Phil Gould AM said.

"I'm confident he will enjoy a long career in the NRL and we are grateful to have him at our club."
