An exciting winger who would become a regular fixture in the Panthers backline from the mid 1990s to the turn of the century. Beckett was the club’s top try scorer in 1995, 1996 and 1998.

He would be selected for Australia for the World Nines pre-season competition in 1997. Further representative honours would evade Beckett, however, he had previously played for City in 1995 and 1996.

He would leave Penrith at the end of 2001 with a total of 66 tries, and at the time the fourth highest try scorer for the club.

Beckett joined the UK Super League club Halifax before returning to Australia and playing out his career at the Wests Tigers in 2003.
