The Penrith Panthers have announced the re-signing of winger Brian To’o for four more years.

The contract extension will see the Samoan international remain in Panthers colours until at least the end of the 2027 season.

To’o made his NRL debut for the Panthers in 2019 and has played 70 NRL matches for the club. He has played six State of Origin games for New South Wales and seven Tests for Samoa.

The 24-year-old progressed through the development pathways at Panthers and was a member of the club’s SG Ball side that won the premiership and national championship in 2016.

“Not only is Bizza a tremendous player who has continually performed at the highest level in the biggest games, but he is more importantly a brilliant young man who brightens the day of anyone he comes in contact with,” Panthers coach Ivan Cleary said.

“I feel happy for our players, staff, members and partners that he will be here long-term.”

Panthers Rugby League CEO Matt Cameron echoed Ivan’s comments.

“We’re extremely proud to see Brian commit his future to Panthers for a further four seasons,” Cameron said.

“As a local junior, Brian epitomises what it means to be Panthers player and it is clear that he is passionate about representing the community.

“I’m really looking forward to watching him build on what he has achieved in the game so far and continue to show what the built from within culture here at Panthers is all about.”
