Penrith Panthers can confirm that NRL assistant coach Andrew Webster will depart the club at the end of the 2022 NRL season.
Webster will remain with Panthers for the remainder of the season before taking up the head coach position at New Zealand Warriors.
Webster, a highly respected member of the coaching staff, joined Panthers prior to the 2021 NRL season, and played a crucial role in the club’s premiership triumph.
“Although we’re saddened to see Andrew depart the club at season’s end, it’s rewarding to see a valued member of the club progress to the next stage of their career,” Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron said.
“Working alongside NRL head coach Ivan Cleary and the entire football staff, Andrew has been influential in providing an environment for players to flourish, and played a key role in leading the Panthers to premiership success.
“On behalf of all at Panthers, we would like to wish Andrew and his wife Emily all the best in the next chapter of their lives, but we look forward to him finishing the 2022 season with Panthers.”
