Tahu signs with Panthers

Former Newcastle and Parramatta centre Timana Tahu has returned from his NRL exile by signing a one year deal with Penrith.

Tahu, 30, has been without a club since being released from his Eels contract at the end of last year after suffering two seperate race rows.

The first saw him walk out on a NSW Origin Camp after allegedly racist remarks from coach Andrew Johns.

Just months later Tahu was himself accused of the same act against a teenage player in a friendly tournament.

Tahu has represented Australia at both rugby union and league, and will add size and speed to the Panthers’ midfield.

The Panthers have confirmed Tahu will not get a chance to face his old Parramatta team mates in Friday’s round two blockbuster.

He will also be missing from Penrith feeder club Windsor Wolves’ match with Balmain Tigers.
