The Brisbane Broncos have settled the futures of three more players until the end of the 2018 season.

Tevita Pangai Junior has been rewarded for an outstanding debut year in the NRL with a two-year deal.

He will be joined at the Broncos by his older brother Mosese Pangai, a centre or winger who has been playing in the Intrust Super Cup for the Townsville Blackhawks.

The older Pangai has been in the Cowboys, Tigers and Panthers’ systems and has represented Tonga, with the 25-year-old to add further depth to the Broncos’ outside backs in 2017.

Pangai junior came to the Broncos from the Canberra under-20s in a pre-season deal and was playing NRL by May.

He debuted in round 12 against the Wests Tigers and never lost his spot, going on to play 14 NRL matches, including two finals games from the bench.

Another 2016 debutant for the Broncos, Herman Ese’ese, will also be a Bronco until at least the end of the 2018 season.

Ese’ese came to the Broncos after making his NRL debut for the Bulldogs last year, and played eight NRL matches this season.

Broncos’ chief executive Paul White said the trio of deals were further good news for the Broncos, who have signed re-signed Matt Gillett, Tom Opacic, Jaydn Su’a and Jonus Pearson in the past fortnight as well as recruiting experienced Titans’ outside back David Mead.

  1. Hey ZT .. there are some very strong (and down right scary) rumors that the dragons are looking at Todd Carney for 2017. Has anyone else heard anything re this?
    The French don’t want him because he is having behavioral issues over there so ffs dragons please stay away from him.

  2. Good re signings for the Broncos! Of the Broncos’ forwards this season Ese Ese and Pengai Jnr had the best metres per minute stats, which was an attacking metric the Broncos really struggled with. If the Broncos don’t sign any additional forwards in the offseason, I’d like to Ese Ese and Pengai Jnr line up as the Broncos’ starting props next season with McGuire shifting to lock.

  3. Really excited by Moses Pengai’s signing too! At 111kgs I’m hoping he can provide the Broncos with the go forward from the wing that Oates consistently provides but on the opposite flank.

  4. Lots of rumours doing the rounds that Brissie boy Tautau Moga is also on the verge of signing for the Broncos next season. With him, Oates and Moses Pengai in the backline that’s some great go forward. Add Mead’s speed and strength to that backline and it looks a lot more threatening than one containing Kahu and the irratic Roberts.

  5. If the Broncos are looking to do some trading in the offseason to bolster their forward stocks I would like to see them target any of:
    – Papalii of the Roosters
    – Tagataese of the Sharks
    – Moa of the Roosters
    – Musgrove of the Bunnies
    – Peteru of the Titans

    Based on each of the Broncos forwards’ performances this season, all of the above mentioned players would represent an upgrade on Blair, Funaki, Glenn, Arrow and even Gillett and Thaiday.
