JOSH McGuire has signed a new four-year extension with the Broncos that will see him remain with the club until the end of the 2021 season.

The 27-year-old, who has moved to fill the boots of Corey Parker at lock to start the year, says that he was always going to remain in Brisbane.

“I am very privileged to be a part of this club for another four years,” said McGuire.

“It was a no brainer for me – to stay part of this club and hopefully be a one player club for the rest of my life was an offer I couldn’t refuse.

“My goal as a 14-year-old was to play NRL for the Brisbane Broncos.

“I’ve had the opportunity to do that and I think I will look back and say ‘how did it happen and why did they pick me?’

“Obviously a lot of luck comes into it and opportunity, but I am just so excited about the next four years.”

The news follows on from the announcement that youngster Corey Oates has also signed a new deal with the club.

The 22-year-old has signed a one-year extension on his current deal that will see him remain stay on board until at least the end of 2018.

Oates said he was pleased to have the deal sorted quickly so that he can focus on his goals for the year ahead.

“It is a bit of a relief and something I don’t have to think about during the year or have in the back of my mind,” he said.

“To get it out as the season kicks off is a real relief for me.

“We came to the agreement with the Broncos that the one year is the best for both the club and myself.”

Jordan Kahu, however, may not be with the club much longer after it became apparent that the Kiwi winger will test the open market at the end of the season.
