David Fifita is contracted by the Broncos in 2020, although that hasn’t stopped Brisbane from making his signature one of their biggest priorities over the coming months.

The Origin forward impressed once again in the Broncos’ loss to the Rabbitohs on Friday night, with coach Anthony Seibold suggesting they want to extend his deal and make him a long term servant of the club.

The 19-year-old has reportedly garnered interest from Parramatta and the Warriors already, although the Broncos do have some time up their sleeve as rival clubs can’t officially offer him a deal until November 1.

Fifita scored two tries and broke 11 tackles against the Bunnies, which prompted Seibold to say the re-signing of the youngster is the club’s priority moving forward.

“We see [Fifita] as a priority, of course we do,” Seibold said on Friday night.

“He has been with the Broncos since he has been a kid so of course we want to keep him but he has a year to go on his contract.

“But yeah he was really good (against South Sydney), a lot of tackle breaks, he ran with real intent.

“He gave the Bunnies’ right hand side a fair bit of grief.”

Fifita has represented the Broncos on 31 occasions.
