The NRL is always about mid-season signings where applicable and the Penrith Panthers have signed Asu Kepaoa from the Wests Tigers effective immediately until the end of 2025.

Kepaoa’s move comes amid some uncertainty over the future of current Panthers centre Taylan May for numerous indiscretions over the years.

Kepaoa, who had five seasons with the Tigers, played in 42 NRL games, and the Tigers thanked him for his contribution to the club.

“On behalf of the club I want to thank AJ for his contribution over the past few years,” Tigers CEO Shane Richardson said.

“This is an outcome that works for all parties, and we wish AJ the very best with his future.”

As for Penrith, they believe that when the chances arrive for Kepaoa at their club, that he will flourish and thrive.

“We’re extremely pleased to welcome AJ to the club,” Panthers General Manager of Football Shane Elford said.

“AJ is a talented player who we believe will flourish in the Panthers system, and we have confidence this signing will have a positive impact on both him and our club.”
