during the NRL Trial Match between the Wests Tigers and the Cronulla Sharks at Campbelltown Sports Stadium on February 21, 2015 in Sydney, Australia.

Broncos front-rower Matt Lodge is keen to continue his career at Brisbane, aiming to get a new deal sorted with the club.

The 23-year old has played all 15 games for the Broncos this season and is close to agreeing on a new contract, which must first be ticked off by the NRL.

Coming off an impressive performance in his side's 26-22 come-from-behind victory over the Raiders on Saturday night, the No.8 issued his faith to Brisbane.

"I came here for a reason and I want to repay the faith. I’m looking to stay here," he told NRL Media. 

"I haven’t missed a game this season and Wayne and the senior boys put a lot of faith in me, obviously starting me in round one.

"I am just trying to repay the favour and do my best every week."

Lodge described the financial agree with the New York family as a "weight off his shoulders."

"I can move forward now and I have got a clear head," he said.

"Now I am just looking to build on my footy performances. I have got heaps to improve on, and the coaches are into me all the time to improve.

"There are definitely lots of parts of my game that need to be a lot better to get me where I want to be."

The former Wests Tigers forward is excited by the core the Broncos have built and their future prospects.

"When I first came in I was the young guy, but now I feel like the old guy," Lodge said.

"Our forward pack is so young, but those young guys step up and are all part of the team. Hopefully, we can all stay together and it is going to be a good forward pack to be a part of."
