I'm pretty sure 1910 said that it was just an error and that Deardon isn't part of the top 30.Plus, there's confusion surrounding Dearden's place in the top 30. Originally NRL.com listed Dearden as an official member before his name was pulled, seemingly at the Broncos behest. Despite this, his profile remained on the official website, causing websites like FoxSports to report him as a member of the squad.
If he's found guilty, I'd be surprised if Taueli remains in the top 30.
So this years Maccas cards finally came.https://www.couriermail.com.au/sport/nrl/teams/broncos/return-of-matt-gillett-and-addition-of-shaun-fensom-a-huge-boost-for-brisbane/news-story/9b260b979d68932adf66b426ed4c9122
Matt Gillett has returned to Broncos training looking healthier than ever as he declares he will be fit to return to the paddock for Round 1.
After undergoing off-season shoulder surgery, the 30-year-old Test second-rower dropped almost 10 kilograms and endured an intense weightlifting program to regain his bulk to begin contact work.
The Broncos returned to training under new coach Anthony Seibold on Monday, with Gillett still sporting the red ‘no contact’ vest as he awaits clearance following surgery and the neck injury that kept him sidelined from Round 5 in 2018.
Gillett was photographed on November 8 looking a shadow of his former self, but he appeared at training on Monday, almost two months later, having bulked back up to his original frame.
“It has been a long time on the sideline watching but I have been able to spend time with family and refresh the body,” said Gillett, who backed himself to not only be fit for March’s NRL season opener but also play a trial.
“In a way it has been perfect timing to get that rest for a year and hit the ground running this year — I am pretty eager to get back out there.”
Gillett’s 2018 season ended abruptly when it was revealed he fractured his neck in the opening round but played another four games before the serious injury was diagnosed.
He also underwent a shoulder reconstruction to treat an ongoing complaint.
“It might take a little bit to get myself back to the level I was playing at but nothing is going to change mentally for me with the way I play my football,” he said.
Gillett looked forward to tightening up a Brisbane defence that conceded 500 points last year — the 11th worst in the league.
