The Brisbane Broncos have finally secured a roster win, with boom centre Kotoni Stagg re-signing with the club on a lengthy deal.
The 22-year-old has arguably been the club’s brightest prospect amid the Broncos’ historic form-slump and has now committed himself to stay at Red Hill until the end of the 2025 season.
“My future is here at the Broncos – I’ve always been told to chase my dream and my dream as a young kid was to be here at the Broncos, and I’m going to be here for another four years – I’m really happy,” Staggs said in a statement released by the Broncos.
“Reflecting back to when I was growing up as a young kid and kicking the footy around the park imagining I was in Broncos colours, to be able to make my debut and play here for three years and then to get another four years on top of that with a bunch of boys that I’ve known for a while now, I’m pretty proud of that.
“We’ve got a lot to look forward to as a club … I want to continue to grow and help the younger players out and be a leader and a mentor.
“I’ve made mistakes off the field but I’m learning my lessons and from here onwards I want to be the best person I can be and be a role model, it’s up to me to get my head in the right place and move forward.
“I’m here to send a message out to the fans that I’m here to stay at the Brisbane Broncos, this is the club that I always dreamed of playing for and it’s my home.”
The retention is a big win for coach Kevin Walters who expressed his delight at having Staggs at the club for four a further four years.
“Kotoni’s passion for the Broncos is what has kept him at the Club as well as his competitive drive – he’s the type of player that we need here at the club,” Walters said.
“He grew up watching the Broncos win premierships and he wants to win one here himself.
“We have a terrific core group of players signed to long-term contracts who have all been through the Broncos system, and Kotoni adds to that – he has committed to us because he beileves the future here is bright.”
