Fijian centre Waqa Blake has been named in the starting lineup for the Panthers to face the Parramatta Eels in a trial game on Saturday.
The 23-year-old earlier signed a four-year contract extension with the club.
Blake will now remain in Panthers colors until the end of the 2023 NRL premiership season.
He was raised in Western Australia before moving to the eastern seaboard to join the Panthers in 2013, where he enjoyed immediate success winning the premiership with the NYC side.
His form earned him a call up for the NSW City Origin side in 2015 as well as making his test debut for the Fiji Bati in 2017.
Meanwhile, Panthers will play Eels at 8pm Saturday.
