Young Broncos prop Patrick Carrigan has extended his stay at the Brisbane Broncos, re-signing until the end of 2022.
Originally contracted until the end of next season, Carrigan has signed on for a further years in a handy boost for Anthony Seibold’s team.
“I love the club, it’s been the club I came to straight out of school,” Carrigan told Broncos TV.
“Hopefully I can get a bit of game time in the upcoming years and do something with it.”
Carrigan captained the club’s National Youth Competition side in 2013 and was named Players’ Player and Player of the Year in the same year.
The 20-year old will look to make his first-class debut next season and follow in the footsteps of teammates Payne Haas, Kotoni Staggs and David Fifita.
“I can still remember all of those three boys making their debuts.”
“It makes you want to achieve that goal (debuting) even more and it’s made me hungry to hopefully get out there and play alongside them.”
Broncos CEO Paul White was thrilled that the club was able to lock away the young talent.
“Patty’s a great signing for us, he’s a local Brissy boy, he’s studying Physiotherapy here and with his values and work ethic, he’ll be a strong leader at this club for a long time,” White told the club website.
