Broncos re-sign young guns


The Brisbane Broncos have re-signed three young guns in Tom Opacic, Jaydn Su'A and Jonus Pearson.

Opacic, 22, has signed until the end of the 2018 NRL season, while teenager Su'A (2018) and 21-year-old Pearson (2017) will also remain with the club.

Su'A became the youngest forward to ever start for the Broncos earlier this year, while Opacic has played eight games this season and Pearson two.

The good news for the Broncos comes just a day after Matt Gillett committed to the club on a four-year deal.

"It is wonderful to have these three young men re-commit to the Broncos," Broncos chief executive Paul White said.

"They are three players we have identified and developed through our own pathways.

"To have all three of them make their NRL debuts this year was a great achievement for them, their families and the Broncos' club.

"We look forward to watching them continue to excel at the highest level over the coming seasons."

The Broncos are preparing for an NRL semi-final against the North Queensland Cowboys on Friday.
