The Broncos are on a role in re-signing players, as the Hodges announcement comes just a few weeks after lock Corey Parker also chose to stay with the club.
â€œI think people canâ€™t help but underestimate the effect Justin has on this club and its NRL team,â€ said Broncosâ€™ chief executive Paul White.
â€œHe has shown remarkable resilience to return from a year out of rugby league with a serious injury to again be one of the benchmark players of the competition.
â€œHis performance to take back his Test jersey after just half a dozen games this season proves that.
â€œJustin is a player of immense talent and poise and is vitally important to the success of the Broncos team going forward.
â€œWe are very pleased he has agreed to be part of the club for another three seasons as he is an integral part of our senior leadership team.â€
For Hodges himself, he is pleased to be back, and he is pleased to be a part of the leadership group to guide the younger players around, both on and off the field.
â€œI am very happy to get this organised and sorted at this stage of the year so I can concentrate on the rest of the 2011 season,â€ he said.
â€œWe have a great group of young players coming through here and I know we are a chance of being part of some success in the next few years.â€
“Never. This is the club I want to stay at. Like Paul said, I had talks a fair bit and I told him that I didn’t want to look anywhere else but here. It’s the club I love, and it’s the club I play my best footy for”.
