IT was the news the #Bronxnation has been waiting to hear from the man himself.

Matt Gillett announced this morning he has re-signed with the Brisbane Broncos for another four years.

And he chose to do it on the club's own webshow Broncos Live at 7.30am this morning.

Always the joker, Gillett - who has missed most of the season with a serious neck injury - made some cracks about people thinking he was going to announce his retirement.

But the news was good - Gillett will be a Bronco until at least the end of the 2022 season.

"Being a one-club player at the Broncos is a very special thing," he said.
