Panthers granted squad exemption

Penrith Panthers has received an exemption from the NRL to add hooker Luke Sommerton to the NRL squad to face Manly Warringah Sea Eagles on Thursday night. 

Sommerton joins the squad after starting hooker Mitch Kenny and five-eighth Jarome Luai were ruled out of the Round 24 clash.

Kenny drops out of the squad after failing to complete captain’s run on Wednesday morning, while Luai has been ruled out by the medical staff due to illness.

Panthers will update the squad to 19 players 24 hours prior to kick-off.
