BIOGRAPHY

Leeds Rhinos have secured a major signing by capturing Australian Test forward Trent Merrin, 29, from NRL side Penrith Panthers on a four-year contract beating competition from a number of NRL clubs for his signature.

A natural leader, Merrin has played over 200 games in the NRL having spent seven seasons with the St George Illawarra Dragons before joining Penrith in 2016. He joins Konrad Hurrell as the club’s second marquee signing for 2019. He was a Premiership winner in his second season in the NRL in 2010 and was part of the NSW State of Origin set up a year later.

In 2014 he added an Origin medal to his collection before scoring in the Four Nations Final to help Australia win the title. In total he has seven caps for Australia, the last coming in 2017 against New Zealand.

Merrin becomes the Rhinos fifth new signing for 2019 joining half backs Tui Lolohea and Callum McLelland along with centre Konrad Hurrell and prop Dom Crosby.
