The Panthers have one of the league’s best forward packs, and today they’ve moved to lock in a couple of key pieces for the future.
The club today announced the re-signings of forwards Reagan Campbell-Gillard and Kaide Ellis for a further six years and two years, respectively.
As a result, Ellis will remain at the foot of the mountains until the end of 2020, while Campbell-Gillard is locked in until the end of 2024.
Campbell-Gillard this year made his State of Origin debut for New South Wales, and has developed into one of the game’s premier front rowers.
Ellis had been rumoured on social media for a possible mid-season exit, but today’s announcement has proven those rumours well wide of the mark.
Campbell-Gillard has played 81 first grade games for the Panthers, 1 Origin for New South Wales, 5 Tests for Australia, and 1 for Fiji.
Ellis has played 4 first grade games for the Panthers, since making his debut earlier this year.
