Penrith Panthers is delighted to announce Scott Sorensen has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.
The 28-year-old forward has committed to Panthers until at least the end of 2023 season.
“I’m extremely grateful to Panthers and Ivan (Cleary) for giving me the opportunity to extend my time here,” Sorensen said.
“I can honestly say it feels like home. The culture this club has built and continues to build is something very special and I am so excited to be a part of it.
“The energy and love for the game the players and staff bring each day makes it such an enjoyable environment.
“The best thing about this group of boys is how hard they work individually and as a team to make sure no stone is left unturned.
“Every single day they want to be better and ultimately they want to be the best. I love it here.”
Sorensen has made ten NRL appearances for Panthers since joining the club in January this year.
He will celebrate his 50th NRL game milestone against Melbourne Storm on Saturday.
“From the moment he arrived at Panthers, Scott has displayed all the qualities that inspired us to bring him to the club,” Panthers General Manager Rugby League Matt Cameron said.
“His professionalism and leadership consistently have a positive impact on the players around him.
“Although it has taken him a good part of the season to establish himself in the NRL side, we are now seeing the important role he can play for our team moving forward.”
