The Penrith Panthers have granted star winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak an immediate release from his contract.

It is expected that Watene-Zelezniak, a Penrith junior, will join the Wests Tigers.

The 23-year-old was a member of the premiership-winning Panthers NYC side in 2013 and made his NRL debut the following year.

Watene-Zelezniak played 106 NRL games and scored 41 tries in his time at the 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.

“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.”
