The Brisbane Broncos today confirm they have released Andrew McCullough from his 2021 contract effective immediately. McCullough, from Dalby, played 260 NRL matches for the Broncos, and represented Queensland in three State of Origin matches in 2018. The 31-year-old started with the Broncos in the National Youth Competition under-20s team, before making his NRL debut in Round 10 of 2008 against Cronulla.
Broncos Chief Executive Paul White thanked McCullough for his efforts while in the Broncos jersey, having started in the Club’s talent development system as a 13-year-old:
“Macca has always been well respected by his fellow players and staff, and favourite with our members and fans. It is sad to see him depart Brisbane, but he will always have a special place here at the club. We wish Andrew and Carlie all the best in what will be a new and exciting opportunity for them.”
Dragons General Manager of Football, Ben Haran said:
“It’s no secret that we have been interested in Andrew McCullough for a while now and we’re pleased to see him finally sign with the Dragons. Signing a player of Andrew’s calibre will no doubt inject plenty of experience into our team and wider squad while his style of play will complement the development of the exciting young talent we have here at the Dragons.”
