Regarded as a tremendously talented halves prospect, Cory Paix and the Brisbane Broncos have agreed to a new three-year deal.
Already signed on for 2020, the new deal is more of an extension to keep Paix at the Broncos for the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
As the club keeps tabs on his progress in the Queensland Cup, a first-grade berth is a matter of when and not if.
“Cory is a real investment in our future,” said Broncos’ head coach Anthony Seibold.
“He is only 19 years of age and is already playing halfback every week in the Intrust Super Cup and is acquitting himself well.’
“He is a player that has come right through our elite player development system and has a very big future.
“To have Cory commit to the Broncos for another three years is very reassuring and wonderful news for the club.”
The young half is excited to continue his career in Broncos colours.
“I have extended my contract for another two years and I am very happy to be here until 2022,” he said.
“Everything is on the rise now so all I have to do is focus on footy.
“It is just about going to training every day and trying to better myself.”
