The Brisbane Broncos have today announced the signing of former Newcastle prop Korbin Sims in what will be a ‘homecoming’ of sorts.

Although raised on the NSW’s South Coast, Sims was recruited by Brisbane and moved to the city as a 15-year-old, where he came through the Broncos’ system.

At one stage Sims and his two NRL-experienced brothers Ashton and Tariq were all playing in Brisbane’s colours.

Sims played in the Broncos’ under 20s National Youth Competition team in 2012 before making the move to the Knights, where he became an NRL player almost immediately.

The 25-year-old Queensland State of Origin-qualified candidate met his new teammates at Red Hill this afternoon.

  1. Yeah we know he’s signed with the Broncos.

    So Sims was born on the South Coast and lived their until he was 15 when he moved to Brisbane to play for the Broncs juniors and he wants to play for QLD? What a tool.

  2. I hope this means the Broncos will lose Roberts, but he is only getting paid $85k this year under the cap, obviously that will increase next year, but he will be getting a bunch of TPAs for sure this year.

  3. Good luck Korbin getting a start in front of Thaiday, Blair and McGuire! As for back row options, the current back row are all too mobile for Sims to compete with and Arrow is a workhorse so I think he will have Parkers spot locked down. At least he will be in the dressing room watching in civi’s with Marshall. 😉

    It’s a long way to go as a backup option. He would have been better off staying at the Knights.

    Still a good depth signing for the Broncos. I just don’t think he will get the game time he is expecting though.

    • Pun intended there (“he will have Parkers spot locked down”)? Anyway apparently Josh McGuire is being looked at for the lock position as well. Its a 2 man race there.

      • 😉 Good lad. I can’t always “gift wrap” them in quotation marks.

        I know McGuire may start there but he hasn’t go Parker’s motor or work rate. I’m tipping Arrow will take over at some point.
