Cronulla's 2016 premiership captain, Paul Gallen, says Penrith's shrewd $120,000 gamble on fiery forward Tevita Pangai Jr has "without a doubt" paid off, yet his injury could be a decisive factor in Sunday's grand final with his place in the side still under a huge cloud.

Pangai Jr was unwanted by Brisbane and didn't play a game for the Broncos after Round 15, having signed a deal to join Canterbury from next season.

The Panthers spotted an opportunity and offered the 25-year-old the chance to continue his 2021 campaign, which the Broncos were happy to accommodate as it meant freeing up some money and unloading an outgoing player.
