THERE is one club that has been more active in the player market than any other: the Penrith Panthers.

No fewer than 13 players will don the Panthers jersey for the first time in 2013.

Lewis Brown, Dean Whare, Sika Manu, James Segeyaro and Wes Naiqama are standouts for energy and attitude.

Their recruitments follow the high-profile departures of Luke Lewis, Michael Jennings and Michael Gordon.

"James Segeyaro has been really good. He's been lighting it up," team captain Kevin Kingston said.

"Guys like Sika Manu and Lewis Brown . . . I knew they'd come in with a great attitude and work ethic.

". . Wes Naiqama, his experience is so valuable," skipper Kingston said.
