The Penrith Panthers have announced the re-signing of front-rower Reagan Campbell-Gillard on a massive new deal that will tie the 24-year old to the club until at least the 2024 season.

“Panthers is the club I’ve always wanted to play for and I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to make a long-term commitment,” Campbell-Gillard told penrithpanthers.com.au.

“The fact my future is now secure means I can completely focus on building and improving my game moving forward.

“The club has shown a lot of faith in me with this deal and now it’s up to me to repay that faith with my performances.

“There is so much young talent coming through the ranks here at Panthers. It’s going to be very exciting over the next few years and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Campbell-Gillard played every game in his debut 2015 season, earning the club’s Ben Alexander Rookie of the Year honours.

He made his Test debut for the Kangaroos at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup after winning Penrith’s Merv Cartwright Medal, and went on to claim his maiden NSW Origin jersey, only to miss the majority of the series with a broken jaw.

He has played 84 games for Penrith.

Panthers executive general manager Phil Gould was thrilled to lock away the gun prop forward on a long-term deal.
