The Broncos have tabled star duo Matt Lodge and Tevita Pangai Jr a massive $4 million package deal to keep them at the club, according to a report by The Daily Telegraph.

It is understood that the pair are on the verge of recommitting to Red Hill, as the club beats out offers from the Warriors and Knights.

Leading player agent Isaac Moses, who manages both Lodge and Pangai Jr, is in the final stage of talks with the Broncos, with a deal expected to be announced as soon as next week.

It is believed that Lodge’s three-year deal is worth around $700,000 annually, while Pangai Jr’s is a multi-year deal worth around $650,000.

Lodge was enticed by bigger money to join New Zealand and Pangai Jr was linked to the Roosters or even speculated to follow former coach Wayne Bennett to South Sydney.

But the rising duo have all but pledged their allegiance to Brisbane to shore up the core of Anthony Seibold’s side.

Pangai Jr recently told The Sunday Mail he was happy at Brisbane.

“I’m leaving the contract stuff to my manager, but I am loving it in Brisbane,” he said.

“If I was to follow Wayne, I would have gone to Souths this year.

“I actually supported ‘Seibs’ (Brisbane coach Seibold) to come to the Broncos.

“I hope there is still money for me here.”

  1. Cause they’re playing do awesome now to deserve that kinda cash. Pangai jnr is an absolute speed bump in defence and runs so soft, would be most overrated player by a long way in nrl.

  2. Have to agree. These blokes are part of the reason they are getting smacked and they want to play them inflated money. Pangai in particular.
