The Panthers have locked winger Christian Crichton into a one-year deal for the 2022 NRL season.

The 25-year-old made his NRL debut at Panthers in 2018 before spending the last three seasons at Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

The older brother of Panthers centre Stephen Crichton, Christian has been training with the Panthers squad on a train-and-trial contract since December.

“It’s always satisfying when we have the opportunity to bring local juniors back to Panthers,” Panthers General Manager Rugby League Matt Cameron said.

“Christian has a strong connection with our playing group, our club and our community.

“There’s no doubt his signing adds valuable depth to our NRL squad for the upcoming season.”

Meanwhile, the Panthers extended the contract of hooker Mitch Kenny earlier this week.
