Penrith Panthers is pleased to announce that Scott Sorensen has signed a three-year contract extension with the club.
The new deal will see the representative forward remain at the Panthers until at least the end of the 2026 NRL season.
After stints with Cronulla and Canberra, Sorensen joined the Panthers in 2021, and has gone on to play a total of 94 NRL matches.
The 30-year-old forward played a vital role in the club’s back-to-back premierships, including scoring a try in the 2022 NRL Grand Final.
Sorensen was rewarded with an international call-up and made his Test debut for New Zealand at last year’s Rugby League World Cup.
“This club gave me an opportunity in 2021 and I am over the moon to be continuing my journey here at Panthers,” Sorensen said.

“I know I wouldn’t be in this position without Ivan Cleary, the incredible staff and of course my teammates.
“I love this club – it’s a very special place to be. To secure my and my family’s future here at Penrith means the world.”
Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron congratulated Sorensen on his contract extension.
“On behalf of all at Panthers, we’re pleased to see Scott remain in Panthers colours for a further three seasons,” Cameron said.
“Scott joined the club as a reliable first grade player in 2021, looking for an opportunity to progress his career. He took that opportunity with both hands and has developed into a dual premiership winner and representative player.
“Not only is Scott a talented and reliable rugby league player on the field, he also embodies the qualities we value at our club seen through his commitment and hard work.”
