A Penrith Panthers player through and through, the decision to stay on was an easy one for Dylan Edwards in the end.
Edwards’ new deal will see him remain at the foot of the mountains until the end of the 2024 season.
Although Edwards may not be seen as an elite fullback, Panthers fans love him and praise his heart and work rate.
In the end, Edwards knew that there was just one place for him. Penrith.
“Panthers is the only place I want to be so I’m pumped to have secured my future here,” Edwards said.
“This club means everything to me. I’ve grown up with this team and the bond we share is something special.
“I believe we’ve still got a lot to achieve as a team, and my family and I are so grateful to be part of that journey.”
Edwards, a Bellingen Dorrigo Magpies junior, drew praise from Panthers coach Ivan Cleary.
“Dylan’s character and courage is an asset for our club,” Panthers coach Ivan Cleary said.
“His attitude and commitment means his game continues to develop and we firmly believe his best years are still ahead of him.
“He sets an outstanding example, on and off the field, for any young player with aspirations of a career in the NRL.”
