Penrith Panthers have announced the retention of hooker Mitch Kenny who will stay at the club until at least the end of the 2024 season, as per penrithpanthers.com.au.
Kenny’s signature keeps another local junior at the club alongside the likes of 2021 Clive Churchill Medalist Nathan Cleary, Jahrome Luai, Brian To’o, Stephen Crichton, Spencer Lenui and Izack Tago.
“I’m completely stoked because the Panthers is home for me”, Kenny told penrithpanthers.com.au.
“The people at the club have shown faith in me since the beginning and been patient with my development. I give them so much credit for making me the player and person I am today”, said Kenny.
After it was announced that Apisai Koroisau will be leaving the club at the end of the 2022 season, Kenny’s signature will have Panthers fans cheering as they mount a premiership defence.
Kenny made his NRL debut in round 11 in 2019 and has gone on to play 36 games, with 18 of those coming in 2021.
Kenny also featured in The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup four times last season and had one try assist, 35 running metres per game and 29.2 tackles per game at an efficiency of 94.4%.
