Report: Panthers CEO slams Jarome Luai over ‘nonsense’ early departure West Tigers post-departure news Jarome Luai is unlikely to be released early by the Panthers.

Penrith Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher has flatly rejected suggestions that Triple Premiership star Jarome Luai will play for the Wests Tigers in 2024.
Fletcher told 9News Sydney that although an announcement from the Tigers was imminent, Luai had no intention of playing in any other colors than for the Panthers next season “under no circumstances”.

Luai was reportedly offered a five-year, $6 million contract to join the Tigers, but his contract with the Panthers still runs through 2026.
However, Mr.
Fletcher is sure that 5/8 has no intention of moving yet.

“We love him more than anything.
We need him to play here next year and he’ll do it here,” Fletcher told 9News Sydney’s Zach Bailey on Tuesday.

We have not released any players yet and under no circumstances will Jarome go anywhere until he is 24 years old. ''We wish him and his family all the best after this.
” When asked about the legality of the deal, Fletcher noted the Panthers’ desire to hopefully win a fourth flag in the next few years, considering the possibility of a deal.

He will be with another Premiership team.
“All speculation is nonsense.
” He will play for the Panthers.
“Hopefully he can win another Premier League with him,” Fletcher said.
Tensions are running high in Penrith following Jarome Luai’s decision to leave the Panthers as he prepares to sign a monster contract with the Tigers.

Fletcher nevertheless emphasized his own importance to Penrith and expressed his enthusiasm for the 26-year-old.
He noted that a contract as big as the Tigers’ contract would be life-changing for Luai and his young family.

I’m really happy.
” He got a major contract and a long-term contract, so that’s good.
He has the blessings of the club,” Fletcher said.

“It’s just a shame that with all this success the (salary) cap ends up pushing away these good players.
” Meanwhile, former New South Wales Blues Manager Brad Fittler praised Luai’s ambition in pursuing a contract, explaining: He believes the No.
58 spot provides the most value to the Tigers.

“He has that bit of oomph that can give any football club momentum,” Fittler told 9News Sydney.

“We talk about results, but he delivers results every day without anyone looking.
That’s the value of Jarome Luai.
” Wests Tigers end season with wooden spoon After stacking up, they are desperately trying to improve their rankings.
