Zac Hosking and Jack Cogger join Panthers

Penrith Panthers is pleased to announce the signings of Zac Hosking and Jack Cogger ahead of the 2023 NRL season.

Hosking joins the first grade squad on a two-year deal, while Cogger is also an addition to the top 30 after agreeing to terms for the upcoming season.

Hosking, a 25-year-old back-rower, played four NRL games for the Brisbane Broncos in 2022 after making his first grade debut against St George Illawarra in Round 17.

The Central Newcastle Butcher Boys junior previously played at the Knights, where he was named the NSW Cup Player of the Year on two consecutive occasions.

Cogger joins Panthers on a one-year deal following two seasons at the Huddersfield Giants in the English Super League.

The 25-year-old half returns to Australia after playing 27 matches abroad.

The Berala Bears and Toukley Hawks junior made his NRL debut in 2016 and played 42 first grade matches for the Knights and Bulldogs.

“On behalf of all at Panthers, we look forward to welcoming Zac and Jack to the club ahead of the new season,” Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron said.

“Jack joins the club with NRL experience and will add depth to the Panthers top 30 squad. The opportunity Jack has to work alongside representative halves Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai will also be beneficial to his game.

“Zac’s experience and capabilities make him an excellent addition to our squad and we’re delighted to welcome him on board. We believe Zac will really flourish in Panthers colours.”
