With some players leaving the Brisbane Broncos, the key was to strengthen their side and they have done that, confirming the signings of Todd Lowrie and Daniel Vidot on 2 year deals and Stewart Mills on a 1-year deal.
For Todd Lowrie, he joins the Broncos after a release from the New Zealand Warriors last week with his experience (184 games), something that the club looks forward to utilising in their team.
â€œThey all add some depth to our playing roster â€“ Todd in particular has got a lot of experience, including being part of a Grand Final winning team with the Melbourne Storm, and heâ€™s been around for a lot of years,â€ said Broncos head coach Anthony Griffin.
â€œHeâ€™s played 184 games so heâ€™s got a wealth of experience and heâ€™ll really add to the strength of our pack.”
As for Daniel Vidot, his utility value has come in handy of late for his former club, the St George Illawarra Dragons, as the club looks forward to utilising his versatility.
â€œDaniel Vidot is someone who I think has still got his best football in front of him, and he was part of the Queensland Emerging Origin squad a couple of seasons ago,” said Griffin.
â€œHe can cover a lot of positions â€“ centre, wing and back-row, and heâ€™s 108 kilos so heâ€™s a big boy and still only 23 years old.
With Justin Hodges out for at least half the year, the Broncos needed some additional depth in the backs and have thus signed former Cronulla Sharks utility back, Stewart Mills.
â€œItâ€™s the same with Stewart Mills. Heâ€™s already played 16 first-grade games for the Sharks, he was an elite Under 20s player for them that played first-grade at the age of 19, and was in the NSW Cup Team of the Year this year,” said Griffin.
â€œAgain he covers a lot of positions from centre, wing to fullback and will add to the depth of our outside backs.
â€œWeâ€™ve really looked to build quality depth within our squad and reinforce our outside backs.â€
