Royce rolls back home to Penrith

GUESS who's back at Penrith?

Royce Simmons, the captain of the Panthers first premiership team in 1991, will return to the club to take the reins of the new Captain's Club.

This exclusive club will provide the ultimate inner sanctum experience for members, including private dinners and functions, season tickets, unique merchandise and corporate events.

Simmons returns to the club after his second stint as part of the Wests Tigers coaching staff and two seasons coaching in the English Super League.

Penrith Panthers group chief executive Warren Wilson said it was great to have so many of the club's heroes back home. "Royce will be a great addition to the Panthers team," he said.

"After a distinguished career as player and coach for the club we're excited to welcome him back in this new and important role.

"Given he's a member of Penrith's Team of Legends, Royce is the perfect fit for our new Captain's Club."

Simmons played 233 games for the Panthers between 1980 and 1991 and represented NSW and Australia during that time.

He also coached the Panthers players for seven years during the late 1990s.
