Peachey leaving Penrith, Souths and Cowboys announce huge re-signings

BY A.J NASH

The exits at the Penrith Panthers continue with gun utility Tyrone Peachey to join Gold Coast from 2019.

Peachey follows Matt Moylan, Leilani Latu and Bryce Cartwright in recent departures at the foot of the mountains.

Originally contracted until the end of 2019, Penrith agreed to finish up the contract early. He will play for the Panthers this season.

“Tyrone is a player that is versatile and also very skilful,” Titans coach Garth Brennan said.

“He is a player that when he gets the ball in his hands, people in the crowd stand up and watch.

“He’s been on the edge of higher representative honours and I think he will add another dimension to this side in 2019.

“I’m looking forward to him joining the club next year.”

Meanwhile South Sydney and North Queensland have announced key re-signings.

The Rabbitohs have secured Cody Walked until the end of 2020 while the future without Johnathan Thurston looks bright for the Cowboys with Michael Morgan signing for another five seasons.

“I’m stoked to be staying at the Cowboys, a club I grew up supporting and, later in life, proudly playing for,” Morgan said.

“Townsville is my home, I’ve been involved with the Cowboys since I was 17, I made my NRL debut as a Cowboy and all the positives in my career have come from me proudly wearing this great team’s colours.”
