Penrith Panthers is delighted to announce Mitch Kenny has signed a two-year contract extension with the club.
The 24-year-old hooker has committed to Panthers until at least the end of 2024 season.
"I’m completely stoked because Panthers is home for me," Kenny said.
"The people at this club have shown faith in me from the very beginning and been patient with my development. I give them so much credit for making me the player and the person that I am today.
"It feels awesome to know that I’ll get to keep putting on the Panthers jersey and representing our community."
A local junior with Windsor Wolves who progressed through the club’s development pathways, Kenny has played 36 NRL games for Panthers since making his first grade debut in 2019.
I just want to repay the faith: Kenny
