Penrith have re-signed two-time Premiership-winning prop Moses Leota until the end of the 2027 season.

Already signed for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, Leota has committed to a further three seasons.

Having grown up in New Zealand, Leota moved to Australia and progressed through the Panthers junior development pathways and was a member of the club’s premiership-winning NYC side in 2015.

He made his NRL debut in 2016 and has gone on to play 128 games for the Panthers, playing an influential role in the club’s back-to-back NRL premierships.

A representative player, Leota made his Test debut for Samoa in 2019 and has played three Tests for New Zealand.

Leota’s re-signing ensures a key group of Panthers players – including Brian To’o (2027), Nathan Cleary (2027), Isaah Yeo (2027), James Fisher-Harris (2026) – will remain together on long-term deals.

“This re-signing means everything because this club is home to me,” Leota said.

“I never thought I’d be in this situation, so I’m grateful to re-sign with the Panthers. It will be great to stay with the club for the rest of my career.”

Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron congratulated Leota on his new deal.

“Everyone at the club is pleased to see Moses commit to the Panthers until the end of the 2027 season,” Cameron said.

“Moses embodies the qualities that we hold at our club and has consistently demonstrated his strong work ethic.

“We take pride in the fact that Moses has progressed through the ranks at the club and will now continue his journey in Panthers colours.”
