Nicholls signs with Penrith

The Penrith Panthers have continued to mould their 2017 squad by adding Broncos playmaker Darren Nicholls on a one-year deal. 

Nicholls, a former member of the Rabbitohs and Broncos NRL squads, enjoyed a sensational season for Redcliffe in the Intrust Super Cup, finishing the year as the competition’s leading point-scorer.

A Drummoyne junior, Nicholls will add depth to the Panthers playmaking stocks which boasts the likes of Nathan Cleary, Te Maire Martin, Bryce Cartwright and Peter Wallace.

Nicholls is the second new signing for the club in as many days following the Panthers acquisition of Rabbitohs winger Michael Oldfield also on a one-year deal.

The talented half also represented the XXXX Queensland Residents against New South Wales at Langlands Park this year.

Nicholls finished fourth in the prestigious Courier Mail Medal four points behind winner Josh Chudleigh.
