Biography:

‘Slammin’ Sam’ is getting ready to play a new style of game with the Broncos as he enjoys the twilight of his career.

He showed his selflessness last year when making a surprising but successful switch to hooker after Andrew McCullough was injured.

In 2018 it is more likely the engine room will see more of Sam, as he provides impact bursts whether he plays at prop or on the edge.

This veteran is approaching his 300th NRL match.
