Matt Moylan could be on the move with reports rival clubs are circling the Penrith Panthers skipper amid rumours he’s unsettled.

Fairfax Media is reporting that the Penrith Panthers are keen for Moylan to see out the four remaining years of his contract but would not stand in his way should he secure a big deal with another club.

The emergence of Dylan Edwards and Tyrone May this season has seen the Panthers charge towards the finals while Moylan has been sidelined.

Edwards, in particular, has been in fine form at the back and has the fullback position his.

It remains to be seen if the Panthers would actually release Moylan, their current club captain, from the remainder of his deal but the club are aware that rivals have expressed interest.

“All I know at this stage is he has four years on his contract to go,” Panthers chief executive Brian Fletcher told Fairfax Media.

“To my knowledge, at this stage, that’s the deal. He’s a Penrith boy through and through.

“We want him here, but we can’t control what he wants to do.”


  1. I think Moylan is a better fullback than Dufty. I think penrith are under cap pressure so if you could get him for 500k?

  2. This story had all the feel of an attempt to unbalance the Panther camp prior to the Manly clash.
    Moylan won’t be leaving the Panthers for anyone, let alone the Dragons —although given how many ex-Dragons join the Mountain Men, it might be poetic justice.

  3. The Tigers are seriously interested in signing Moylan hoping he will join as he and coach Cleary get along well .. but Manly are also after him as they offloading Blake Green to the Warriors next so they will be after Moylan to play 5/8. My tip he’ll end up on the Northern beaches unfortunately .. !!

  4. Hopefully Goes to the bunnies GI back to centres with Jennings Gags on the wing with Aj Reynolds & Walker in halfs cookie in at hooker think we’d go pretty well

  5. He might go to Cronulla.

    Cloudsurffer, Souths would be a top 8 side with Moylan:
    1. Moylan
    2. Johnston
    3. Talaki/Jennings
    4. Inglis
    5. Gagai
    6. Walker
    7. Reynolds
    9. Cook

    Add in Burgees bros, Crichton, Murray and you have a great team
