Peachey returns to Panthers, Staines departs

Penrith Panthers can confirm Tyrone Peachey will return to the club ahead of the 2023 NRL season, while Charlie Staines has been granted an immediate release.

The deal will see Peachey return to Panthers for the first time since 2018 on a one-year deal, while Staines will join Wests Tigers.

Staines joined Panthers as part of the club’s development program in Central West NSW and progressed from the Panthers SG Ball squad to be a representative player and premiership winner.

After scoring four tries on his NRL debut, Staines played 38 first grade matches and made his Test debut for Samoa earlier this season.

“It’s been rewarding to see Charlie progress his rugby league journey during his time at the club,” Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron said.

“Charlie leaves Panthers as a premiership winner with several fond memories, including his unforgettable NRL debut and his try in the 2022 NRL Grand Final.

“On behalf of all at Panthers, I’d like to thank Charlie for his efforts and wish him all the best for the future.”

Thank you Charlie Staines

Peachey will return to Panthers for the 2023 NRL season after stints with Gold Coast (2019-2021) and Wests Tigers (2022).

The experienced utility originally joined Panthers in 2014 and played 109 games for the club, going on to play three games for New South Wales (2018) and six games for the Indigenous All Stars (2015-17, 19-21), as well as appearances for NSW City Origin and the Prime Minister’s XIII.

“I look forward to welcoming Tyrone and his family back home to Panthers for the 2023 NRL season,” Cameron said.

“It’s great to have Tyrone’s experience and versatility as part of our club, and we believe he can flourish in the Panthers environment.”
