While the annual NRL market frenzy is set to kick off in the coming weeks, we have taken a look internally to see who your club should lock down before they look externally.

1. Brisbane Broncos

Tevita Pangai Junior  

Surprise, surprise. After a breakout 2018 season in which Pangai Junior displayed his powerful potential to the NRL, the Tongan representative opted to re-sign with the Broncos on a one-year deal.

Having flown out of the gates in 2019, recording impressive statistics of 146 running metres per game as well as being sixth in the competition for tackle breaks, rumours have begun circulating already in regard to the Roosters preparing a huge offer for Pangai Junior.

With Pangai Junior set to break into the Origin set up with New South Wales this year, it is said the Broncos would need to put together a financial package in the ballpark of $800,000 a season to retain their star man.

  1. Te Marie Martin? Would most likely make a useful centre. He has pace & backs up. Still a useless 5/8th & sets up very little.
    Sione Katoa? If the juniors there come up with a useful hooker? That player would have an easy run into first grade. Nothing so far from either hooker that they’ve been using.

  2. The Roosters I hope re-sign Tetevano. Such a hard worker and all round top player. The rumour is getting louder and louder George Burgess wants a Roosters contract, but Pangai Junior is being linked with the Roosters also. We already have our own Pangai Junior in Taukeiaho, Tetevano is the bloke we need to retain regardless of who is linked or rumoured to be after a position at the Chooks. Sydney Roosters also need to make sure they retain development program rookie big prop Poasa Faamausili long term as they have with Lindsay Collins until 2022💪🐔👍
