The Penrith Panthers have granted Dallin Watene-Zelezniak an immediate release from his contract to pursue an opportunity at another NRL club.

“As a local junior and a product of the Panthers development system, Dallin has given our club great service,” Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher said on the club website.

“While we’re obviously disappointed to release him, we do so knowing it is in the best interests of both parties.

“We extend our sincere thanks to Dallin for his contribution at Panthers and wish him the best of luck for the future.”

Watene-Zelezniak played 106 NRL games and scored 41 tries during his time at Penrith.


  1. Whoever signs him needs to put a ” skeletons in the closet” clause in the contract.

  2. Glad he goes without us paying any subsidy for his next club. Hearing he’s on around 800 was crazy. Glad to clear that off our cap. If he was scoring tries and making good runs you don’t get dropped.
