Garner commits to Panthers

Penrith Panthers is pleased to announce the re-signing of forward Luke Garner on a two-year deal.

The 28-year-old premiership winner has committed to the Panthers until at least the end of the 2026 NRL season.

“It means a lot to me to re-sign with the club for another two years,” Garner said.

“Ivan Cleary gave me my NRL debut back in the day and then it was special to win a grand final with him last year.

“To stick around here for another two years is pretty exciting. It’s great to see where this club is going and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.”

Since debuting for Wests Tigers in 2018, Garner has played 97 first grade games and represented the Prime Minister’s XIII in 2022.

The back rower joined the Panthers at the start of the 2023 season and played an influential role in the club’s premiership success.

“Luke has made a positive influence to our club both on and off the field since joining us last season,” Panthers General Manager of Rugby League Shane Elford said.

“Not only is Luke a talented and reliable footballer, but he’s also an impressive man who lives out the values we share at the Panthers.

“We’re thrilled that he has shown his commitment to the Panthers by re-signing with the club.”
