“This Is Classy From Penrith Panthers” Why James Fisher-Harris Shock Will Be Great News For Sunia Turuva

The boys on The Rush Hour reacted to the shock news that three-time premiership winner James Fisher-Harris has been granted an early exit from his Penrith Panthers contract to join New Zealand Warriors.


The current International Golden Boot winner has been allowed to leave on compassionate grounds and will return home from 2025-onwards.

Fisher-Harris moved to Sydney’s West as a teenager and has ended up becoming one of the most intimidating enforcer’s in the modern-era.

But both Wendell Sailor and Aaron Woods believe this may prove to be a masterstroke from the Panthers as their struggles to retain players due to salary cap pressure continue.

And the most recent premiership-winning star linked with an exit is Sunia Turuva but there might be enough for the Fijian flyer to stay.

“Penrith are winners in this,” said Woods.

“What it’s going to do now, he had two years left and on the salary cap.

“That’s freed up now.

“You might be able to keep Turuva and others.

“With this happening, it might shut the door on a move.”
