Such is the high regard the Penrith Panthers hold him in, that Izack Tago has signed a contract extension that keeps him at the club long-term.

Initially contracted until the end of the 2025 season, Tago’s new three-year extension sees him stay at the foot of the mountains until the end of the 2028 season.

Tago, already a two-time premiership winner with the Panthers, is pleased to remain at the club given his junior status and the chance to play alongside so many other juniors.

“I’m extremely happy to re-sign with the club,” Tago said.

Even though I was already signed here for a couple of years, it’s great to lock in my future at my home club for another few years.

“Most of the team are Panthers juniors and we’ve all got a special relationship, so for me to stay here for as long as I can is something I’m excited about.”

With such a strong nursery of players, it should come as no surprise that the Panthers are pleased to retain Tago.

“We’re excited to see another local junior committing his long-term future to the club, and we’re looking forward to seeing him remain in Panthers colours until at least the end of the 2028 season,” Panthers General Manager of Rugby League Shane Elford said.

“Izack’s progression is another great example of the build from within mantra of our club. He has come through our junior development system and progressed to the highest level of playing for country.

“We’re delighted that he has shown his commitment to the Panthers by re-signing with the club.”
