Palasia Extends For Another Year

Emerging forward Keenan Palasia has extended his stay with the Brisbane Broncos for another season.

The 24-year-old Queenslander has made 11 NRL appearances for the Broncos and has established himself in the first grade squad in recent months with a string of strong performances.

Originally a backrower, Palasia has played extended minutes as a middle forward during his nine NRL games this season and impressed with his strong running and bruising defence.

His tenacity and determination is also unquestioned, having overcome a series of knee problems in recent years, and producing sustained strong form in the Intrust Super Cup for the Broncos Affiliate Wynnum Manly Seagulls to earn a new NRL contract.

In choosing to remain a Bronco, Palasia joins Kotoni Staggs, Jordan Riki, Kobe Hetherington, Jake Turpin, Tyson Gamble, David Mead, and exciting youngsters Brendan Piakura, Teui “TC” Robati and Selwyn Cobbo who have all extended with the club in recent months.

They will be joined in 2022 by new signings Adam Reynolds, Kurt Capewell and Brenko Lee.

Broncos Football & Performance Director Ben Ikin said: “Keenan has benefited from some consistent game time in recent months and really started to take his game to the next level.

“He has had to work hard to get to where he is and he has shown a lot of resilience, plus he is really good team man – those are the kind of qualities we want here at the Broncos.”
