Penrith have announced the signing of playmaker Sean O’Sullivan on a one-year deal for the 2022 season.

The 23-year-old Glenmore Park Brumbies junior returns to Panthers following stints with Sydney Roosters, Brisbane Broncos and New Zealand Warriors.

When he last wore Panthers colours in 2016, O’Sullivan captained a Penrith SG Ball side featuring the likes of Brian To’o and Mitch Kenny to the premiership and national title.

“I’m a Penrith junior who grew up in Glenmore Park dreaming of playing for the Panthers, so I’m very excited to come home,” O’Sullivan said.

“The opportunity to learn from the great coaches and quality halves at the club was one I simply couldn’t pass up.

“I’m going to rip into pre-season and do everything I can to help Panthers achieve success again in 2022.”

A former Australian Schoolboys and NSW U18s representative, O’Sullivan made his first grade debut in 2018 and has played 22 NRL games.

“As a local junior who helped bring a national title to Penrith, we’re delighted to have Sean return to the club,” Panthers General Manager Rugby League Matt Cameron said.

“His acquisition provides our NRL squad with vital halves depth ahead of the 2022 season.

“We’re confident Sean’s experiences as an NRL playmaker to this point have him well-equipped to fulfil an important role for the Panthers next season.”
