PLAYERS | Keith Peters


Panther 458

10 matches [2006-2008]

4 points [1 try]


Port Moresby born hooker who moved to Australia at the age of 7 and played his junior rugby league with Cambridge Park.

After playing lower grades at the Panthers he made his NRL debut just after his 20th birthday, coming off the bench in the Round 14 loss versus St. George Illawarra at CUA Stadium.

It would be his solitary appearance that season but would make six appearances in 2007, mostly off the bench but also one appearance as the starting hooker and made 3 appearances in 2008.

During most of his time at the Panthers, he was seen as the third choice hooker behind Luke Priddis and Paul Aiton, and therefore spent most of his time running out for the Windsor Wolves in the Premier League. However, he would make his Test debut for Papua New Guinea in 2008 during the World Cup, in total playing three matches at halfback.

He would continue playing for Windsor until the end of the 2009 season.
