Penrith Panthers have confirmed the departures of six players following the conclusion of the 2020 season.
James Tamou, Jack Hetherington, Caleb Aekins, Malakai Watene-Zelezniak, Pat Hollis and Brayden McGrady have departed the Panthers.
Tamou will join Wests Tigers, Hetherington has signed with Canterbury Bulldogs and Aekins will link up with Canberra Raiders.
Panthers general manager Matt Cameron said: “This has been an extraordinary season for Panthers and each one of these players contributed to that success.
“From the leadership of James Tamou, to the on-field exploits of Jack, Caleb and Malakai, and the enthusiasm of Pat and Brayden at training, we are grateful for their contributions to our club.
“Regardless of whether they were in the team each week, they sacrificed their personal freedoms to live in our NRL bubble for the best part of six months.
“We thank them for their service to Panthers and wish them all the best with their future endeavours.”
