The Penrith Panthers are pleased to announce that Dean Whare has today agreed to a three-year extension of his current contract, to stay on at Penrith until the end of the 2017 season.

Dean joined the Panthers at the end of 2012 and has gone from strength to strength over the past year, culminating in an outstanding performance for New Zealand at the recent World Cup.

Panthers Executive General Manager Phil Gould says Dean is now one of the top centres in the NRL.

“Dean Whare was one of the real success stories at Panthers in season 2013. He came to the club for an opportunity to play regular first grade and has now established himself as a representative centre of the highest order”

“I have no doubt Dean’s best football is still in front of him and we feel very lucky to have him at Panthers for the next four seasons. Dean thoroughly deserves this new deal”.
