The Penrith Panthers have confirmed the departure of ten players from their 2019 squad at their end of season awards.
James Maloney (Catalans Dragons) and Reagan Campbell-Gillard (Parramatta Eels) will depart for new clubs in 2020, while it’s been heavily reported today that Sione Katoa will be joining the Bulldogs next season.
Veteran forwards Tim Grant and Sam McKendry were farewelled, with both players having a significant contribution to the club over their career.
While the club also confirmed that Frank Winstein, Hame Sele, Tyrell Fuimaono, Nick Lui-Toso and Paea Pua will also not be with the club going forward.
With Dallin Watene-Zelezniak (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs) and Waqa Blake (Parramatta Eels) already departing the club earlier in the year, it will be a significantly different Panthers side in 2020.
It's also our opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of our departing players. Gentlemen, thank you.
