John makes Panthers switch

Australian club Penrith Panthers have announced the signing of former Wakefield half-back Isaac John for the 2013 season.

The 24-year-old former New Zealand Warriors player was released by the Wildcats last week to allow him to join a club in the NRL.

John told the Panthers' website: "I am very excited to be joining the Panthers and am looking forward to the opportunity to play with such a great team."
