Former Penrith captain James Tamou has thrown his support behind the Panthers ahead of Sunday night’s Grand Final.
The Wests Tigers skipper is hoping his old team can go one better this year and take out the title, after he captained the side to the 2020 decider.
“Congratulations to Ivan, Isaah, Nath and the Panther boys, been the best team all year,” Tamou wrote on Instagram.
“I know how hard they’ve worked for this opportunity and I know last year plays a part.”
Tamou posted a video of his kids celebrating Penrith’s heartstopping 10-6 win over Melbourne on Saturday afternoon.
Tamou spent four years at Penrith, playing in three Finals campaigns as well as last year’s season decider.
