After impressing and cementing his spot in the back-row for the Penrith Panthers in 2017, the club has extended the contract of Dubbo local, Isaah Yeo.
The new deal has added a further two years to his contract which will see him stay at the Panthers until the end of the 2021 season.
Yeo is excited to remain with the club that he now calls home.
“I’m stoked with the situation and how it all panned out,” Yeo said.
“The club has shown tremendous faith in me and I’m looking forward to trying to repay that faith on the field with my performances.
“I think the last two years have been successful, especially given the age of our playing group, and I’m very confident with where this team is heading.
“I’m really excited to be here. It’s where I call home now.”
Yeo won back-to-back premierships, the first in 2013 with the Penrith Panthers Holden Cup side and then again in 2014 with their Intrust Super Premiership side.
The club sees him as an invaluable player and is aware that he will only get better moving forward.
“Isaah is an outstanding young man,” Panthers Executive General Manager Phil Gould AM said.
“He has come through the Panthers development system and now established himself as a mainstay in our NRL team.
“Isaah already displays tremendous leadership qualities and we are delighted he has committed his long-term future to our club.
“I have no doubts he will be a representative player in the years to come.”
