Broncos back-rower signs new long-term deal

Matt Gillett

Somewhat of a surprise for some, Brisbane Broncos back-rower Matt Gillett has not only re-signed but has done so long-term.

With overtures from rival clubs who were keen to sign him, Gillett has put pen to paper with the club and will stay at the Broncos for a further four seasons.

Joining the club as a teenager and playing in their U20’s side, Gillett played for the Norths Devils side before earning an opportunity in 2010 to play first-grade.

Since then, he has not looked back and the club is pleased to see him stay around for such a long time.

“Matt is a wonderful rugby league player but also a thoroughly decent person,” said Broncos CEO, Paul White.

“His efforts for the club on and off the field do not go unnoticed.

“We are really excited Matt has chosen to commit to the Broncos for such a long time.”

The Bribie Island junior has enjoyed success as a player, having represented both Queensland and Australia and the club look forward to giving Gillett more responsibility as the years go on.

“It shows the regard he has for the club, but also exhibits just how much the Broncos want to make Matt a part of our future,” added White.

“He is part of a group of young leaders at our club that are very important to us as we move forward.

“We congratulate him and his young family on this announcement, and look forward to watching him grow and develop over the coming years.”
