The Penrith Panthers have announced the signing of Tongan International Etu Uaisele and former Panther Junior Tia-Kilifi. Uaisele joins the Panthers from the Parramatta Eels on a one year deal and has played 16 first grade games. The former Eels winger said: “I’m excited to join the Panthers, there has been a good feeling throughout the boys this week at training”.
Tia-Kilifi returns to the Panthers on a one year deal after a short stint with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
Tia-Kilifi stated: “Ivan is a great coach. He’s certainly added some extra intensity to our training this week and hopefully, that will show throughout the season.”
The addition of Tia-Kilifi and Uaisele to the Panthers adds further depth to the backline.
