Penrith have officially announced the re-signing of forward Liam Martin until the end of the 2027 NRL season.
Having made his NRL debut in 2019 for the Panthers, the 25-year-old forward has played 95 NRL games, nine State of Origin matches for NSW and five Tests for Australia.
“I’m really excited to stay at the club that gave me my first opportunity,” Martin said.
“I think the culture we’re building at the club is something special and something I want to be a part of.”
Panthers coach Ivan Cleary was overjoyed by the re-signing of the two-time premiership winner.
“Marto is a quality player. He’s come through this system and he loves the Panthers – you can see that by the way he plays,” Cleary said.
“He’s getting better each and every year. I think his work in the representative arenas have been really strong. He’s a really important player for us and it’s great to see him re-sign with the club.”
Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron said he was thrilled to see Martin commit his future to the club.
“Although Liam was already contracted with the Panthers for the 2024 season, both he and the club saw the value of extending the deal for a further three seasons,” Cameron said.
“We are thrilled about his commitment to our club and look forward to his continued success in Panthers colours over the coming years.”
