Hodges re-signs with the Broncos

He is back to his solid and consistent best, and he, along with the Broncos club, will receive an added boost for it, after centre Justin Hodges has agreed to a new 3-year deal with the club.

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.

“I think people can’t help but underestimate the effect Justin has on this club and its NRL team,” said Broncos’ chief executive Paul White.

“He 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.

“His performance to take back his Test jersey after just half a dozen games this season proves that.

“Justin is a player of immense talent and poise and is vitally important to the success of the Broncos team going forward.

“We 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.”

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.

“I 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,” he said.

“We 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.”

“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”.
