Penrith Panthers have signed back-rower Kurt Capewell from Cronulla Sharks on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old made his NRL debut for Cronulla in 2016 and went on to play 65 games for the Sharks.

Capewell commented: “I’m really excited to join Panthers and can’t wait to get started.

“With the coaches and the players here, I think this club will give me a great opportunity to take my game to the next level.

“My focus is to earn a starting role with consistent performances and then help the younger players in the squad find consistency as well.

“I made my NRL debut in Penrith so I already have fond memories of Panthers Stadium. I’m looking forward to being on the home team next year.”
