Panthers confirm Jamie Soward signing

The Penrith Panthers are very pleased to announce the signing of star five-eighth Jamie Soward on a four year deal.

The NSW Blues, Country Origin and Indigenous All-Stars player, well-regarded for his high point scoring record at current club St George Illawarra, and his skills with the boot, will join the Panthers from next season.

Panthers Executive General Manager Rugby League Phil Gould says "Jamie Soward is a marquee signing for the Panthers club.

β€œHe is a tremendous talent, proven at the highest levels of our game. He also brings with him great experience and leadership qualities.

β€œJamie is an outstanding role model for the youth of Western Sydney and his obvious popularity with the kids makes him a perfect ambassador for our club's community and Junior League programs".

Out of respect for the St George Illawarra Dragons and Jamie, the Panthers will make no further comment at this time.
