Penrith re-sign two young guns

Penrith have re-signed two of their brightest young stars, extending the NRL contracts of Tyrone Peachey and Waqa Blake.

Utility Peachey has signed a two-year extension which will keep him at the foot of the mountains until the end of 2017.

"I think I'm playing my best footy at the moment, and Ivan is giving me plenty of opportunity to prove myself, which makes me want to work even harder," former Cronulla Shark Peachey said.

Emerging centre Blake will also stay at Penrith until 2017 after adding one year to his contract.

Blake is highly-rated by Panthers bosses and has been compared to South Sydney superstar Greg Inglis. He is tipped to make his NRL debut this year.
