One of the in-form players of the competition at the minute, Penrith Panthers fans will be cheering until their voices are hoarse, with the re-signing of boom winger, Josh Mansour.
Mansour – nicknamed Man-Sauce – is a fan favourite at the club and is enjoying a stellar season so far, especially in attack.
With several clubs keen to sign the talented winger including the Canberra Raiders, Mansour opted to stay at the foot of the mountains, a place he knows well.
â€œPenrith is where my heart is, and itâ€™s where I want my footy career to be right now,” said Mansour.
“We are playing some really good footy as a team and I am so lucky to be a part of that. Working under Ivan has been really good learning experience the last few years, and I feel like he brings out the best in meâ€.
For the man himself, the club have been amazing for both he and the club and that support is what he values and appreciates each week.
â€œPanthers members and fans have been amazing too. They have always been so supportive and they give me so much encouragement, and I want to thank them for cheering us on week in, week out. We wouldnâ€™t be where we are this season without you behind usâ€.
The club are just as pleased to retain the talented winger and know just how good he can become over the next couple of seasons.
â€œJosh has been one of Panthersâ€™ best performers this season and I am really happy that he is staying on at the club,” said Penrith Panthers General Manager, Phil Moss.
“He is playing some of the best footy of his career and Iâ€™m sure there is more to comeâ€.
