The Canberra Raiders can confirm the signing of Penrith Panthers backrower Zac Hosking on a three-year deal effective immediately.
Hosking will join the Raiders until the end of the 2026 season, after playing 25 NRL games for both Brisbane and Penrith.
Hosking appeared in 21 matches in 2023, playing a pivotal role in Penrith's premiership winning season.
The 26-year-old will bring vital experience and depth to the Raiders squad, having played in both the second row and centres.
Raiders NRL Recruitment Manager Joel Carbone said Hosking would be a great addition to the squad and is excited to see him join the club for the remainder of the pre-season.
“The Canberra Raiders are incredibly excited to announce the signing of Zac Hosking. In the brief time we’ve known Zac, and through watching him play in the NRL over the last few seasons, it’s evident that his work ethic, ability, and character will be great additions to our Club," Carbone said.
"He also adds some versatility to our squad having played several positions in his career and we’re delighted to have him on board."
"We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Penrith Panthers for their professionalism and transparency throughout this process.”
