Broncos speedster signs new long-term deal

James Roberts

One of the Brisbane Broncos form players in recent weeks, James Roberts – or Jimmy the Jet as many aptly call him due to his speed – has signed a new deal with the Broncos.

The new deal will see him remain at Red Hill until the end of the 2021 season with the signing indicating the Broncos desire to win further premierships by tying up their key players.

So far in 2017, he has scored 13 tries in just 17 games and it is that form that saw him touted as a potential NSW Origin candidate earlier this season.

In the end, it was a simple decision for the club who are pleased to have a player as talented as Roberts re-commit.

“We are excited that James has agreed to commit to the Broncos for another four years,” said Broncos CEO, Paul White.

“The club is proud of the support we have shown James, but also the responsibility he has taken on to earn this new contract.

“The long-term nature of the contract is a show of faith by the Broncos in James, but also by James in the Broncos.”
