Myles Taueli will probably not be a part of the squad. Was charched with reckless grievous bodily harm in Christmas Day. I can’t find a link but it was in the print version of the courier mail.Image

Very inexperienced squad and no notable game manager. They'll make the top 8 but not a contender this year IMO.

Did you see how fat TPJ came back from off season? They're relying on him being top shelf and he came back looking like fat bastard.

The only thing stopping TPJ from becoming a great prop is his attitude and his self discipline.

Shaun Fensom's Brisbane Broncos deal was 15 years in the making

For several months after his Cowboys contract expired, Shaun Fensom was working as a carpenter hoping his professional rugby league career was not over.

The hard work that has defined his NRL career eventually paid off and now the 30-year-old forward is hell-bent on forcing his way into the Broncos top 17.

Brisbane Broncos star Payne Haas fined $10,000, suspended for Integrity Unit breach

Broncos prop Payne Haas has been fined $10,000 and will be stood down for the start of the premiership by his club for refusing to co-operate with the NRL integrity unit, it has been reported. The Broncos sanctioned Haas following an off-field brawl involving relatives at last year's QRL semi-final and another off-field incident, also involving family members.

It appears he wasn’t involved in the incident... one a dispute between family members, the other a brawl at a QRL semi final involving his brother and sisters. He’s not under investigation by police for any wrong doing. But how on earth is he permitted to play if he refuses to talk to the Integrity Unit?

Why would he refuse to cooperate with the Integrity unit and why would the Broncos stand him down if he wasn't guilty of something?

yep strange, taking a leaf out of the Andrew Gee Playbook.

He would've been warned in advance about the punishment and given time to correct himself, so whatever he was withholding was more important than $10k and 2 NRL games. Either that or he has a really, really poor attitude.

Well the Broncos did set that precedent with the investigation into their salary cap issues when Gee and the Broncos league's club refused to cooperate with the NRL.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

These days it's odd that there isn't some footage of the incident floating around? I guess you wouldn't accuse an upstanding organisation like the Broncos or News Ltd of purchasing and concealing said footage.

Gets fined and suspended for not snitching on his family when he was not directly involved. Good on him. Stuff the NRL what right do they have when he wasn't actually doing anything wrong in the first place.

Brisbane Broncos won't get into bidding war for Tevita Pangai Jnr

Brisbane are determined to keep off-contract forward Tevita Pangai jnr at the club long term but won’t get into a bidding war for his services for several reasons.

If Pangai is offered a big-money deal - potentially around the $1 million per season ballpark - by another club, the Broncos will shake his hand and wish him all the best.

Fair go..

I'm not believing that.

Brisbane is a one team town with TPAs on tap. If they want to keep TPJ(of course they do)they'll find the $$$. They've a probably already made him an offer, he's accepted...

Then..

In a few months TPJ comes out and says" I'm happy to be staying with the Broncos for the next 4yrs, I could have taken more $$$ at another club but I believe we have a squad here capable of success and I want to be part of that"
