It was just a matter of time before the Brisbane Broncos sought to re-sign fan favourite Andrew McCullough and they have done so, with club and player agreeing to a new 4-year deal.
Already a part of the club’s leadership group and touted as a potential future captain, McCullough has become a mainstay of the Broncos side over the last 4-5 seasons and has never looked back.
In the end, it was an easy decision for both he and his fiancee to make.
“It is exciting,” said McCullough.
“To be here another four years and to have that security for myself and my fiancée is really good, and something that doesn’t happen often in rugby league.
“But I am very grateful for it.”
The Broncos place important emphasis on retaining their crucial players and Broncos CEO Paul White places McCullough in that category.
“Andrew has been with us since his early teens so to have him re-sign for another four years is wonderful news for the club,” said White.
“His new deal comes on the back of the recent signings of Josh McGuire and Corey Oates, who are all young guys who have been with us since their start and are now re-committing to the club.
“We see these guys as the next crop of leaders of the Broncos, so to have those players committing to new deals underlines the great stability of the club as a whole.”
