Penrith has confirmed the signing of forward Scott Sorensen on a one-year deal.
The 27-year-old joins Panthers after spending the last three seasons with Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
“I’m extremely grateful to have an opportunity here at Panthers,” Sorensen said.
“As an outsider looking in I was always impressed by the culture and camaraderie between the Penrith players.
“Getting the chance to be part of that and to work on my game in a new environment is something I’m really excited about.”
A Cronulla junior, Sorensen made his NRL debut for the Sharks in 2014 and arrives at Panthers with 39 NRL games under his belt.
“Scott is a quality individual and we’re thrilled to have him pull on Panthers colours,” Panthers General Manager Rugby League Matt Cameron said.
“His professionalism and leadership skills are an asset for our club, as demonstrated by the immediate impression he has made on our players and staff.
“In football terms we believe Scott is yet to reach his full potential and his acquisition adds valuable depth to our squad ahead of the 2021 season.”
