Penrith winger Brian To’o has capped off a special week by signing a four-year contract extension with the back-to-back Premiers.
To’o, who married his partner Moesha yesterday, will remain at the foot of the Mountains until at least the end of the 2027 season.
“I’m very grateful and blessed to call Panthers home for the next four years,” To’o said.
“I’d like to thank everyone at the club for giving me the opportunity to do what I love. I can’t wait to play for our amazing members and fans, who have shown me nothing but love and support.”
To’o featured in both the 2021 and 2022 Premiership teams and was off-contract at the end of next season.
Panthers coach Ivan Cleary couldn’t be happier to have To’o re-sign with the club.
“Not only is Bizza a tremendous player who has continually performed at the highest level in the biggest games, but he is more importantly a brilliant young man who brightens the day of anyone he comes in contact with,” Cleary said.
“I feel happy for our players, staff, members and partners that he will be here long-term.”
Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron echoed Cleary’s comments.
“We’re extremely proud to see Brian commit his future to Panthers for a further four seasons,” Cameron said.
“As a local junior, Brian epitomises what it means to be Panthers player and it is clear that he is passionate about representing the community.
“I’m really looking forward to watching him build on what he has achieved in the game so far and continue to show what the built from within culture here at Panthers is all about.”
