Penrith Panthers star Luke Garner attracting Super League interest

PENRITH PANTHERS star Luke Garner is reportedly attracting Super League interest.

The 28-year-old, who made twelve appearances during the 2023 NRL season for the Panthers as the Mountain men scooped up yet a third successive Premiership title has been linked to Super League by Wide World of Sports.

“Penrith would love to keep him and Luke wants to stay but the salary cap is what it is,” Garner’s manager Tas Bartlett told The Mole.

“Ivan (Cleary, Penrith coach) gave him his top grade debut at the Tigers a few years ago and is a fan of the way he plays.

“Luke has had interest both here and in England but will wait and see what happens.”

Garner initially began his career with Wests Tigers, debuting for the Concord club back in 2018. The second-rower eventually went on to play 75 times for the Tigers over a five-year spell, scoring 23 tries in the process.

In a whirlwind twelve months, Garner went from wooden-spoonists with Wests to Grand Final victors with Penrith – and that meteoric rise has garnered attention from the northern hemisphere.
