Club Statement: Andrew McCullough

Thu 21 May 2020, 03:04 PM

The Brisbane Broncos today confirm they have released Andrew McCullough from his 2020 contract effective immediately.

McCullough has been a part of the Broncos’ system since he was 13 years of age, playing in the National Youth Competition under-20s team, before making his NRL debut in Round 10 of 2008 against Cronulla.

McCullough has played 260 NRL matches for the Broncos, and represented Queensland in three State of Origin matches in 2018.

Chief executive Paul White thanked McCulllough for his tireless service to the Broncos.

“We wish Andrew and Carlie all the best in what will be a new and exciting opportunity for them,” said White.

“He has been a favourite son of the Broncos for a long period of time and has always been so well respected by his fellow players and staff.

“It is a sad day for the Broncos to see him depart Brisbane, but he will always be welcome back here at the club.”

All the best Macca, and congratulations on your career with the Broncs.

I was never really a great fan, but the lad always gave his all and had an impeccable attitude.

I'm not gonna lie, I have been hoping this day would come for some time now. The fella just never kicked on from his early days, never reached that next level.

On one hand this is clearly great news, he's surplus to needs with the emergence of Turpin, will also ease a bit of salary cap pressure to allow us to retain Fifita & co.

On the other hand, he's been with the club for such a long time, can't really say a bad word about him, worked his ass off and gave it his all.

All the best M Macca

So who's the lucky club that gets him? Titans? Warriors?

Where is he going?
Bad mouth him all you want, he was always the consummate professional and his work ethic is above excellent. I really hope Turpin doesn't slack off now he is gone.
He doesn't deserve to be bad mouthed and I don't take any enjoyment in seeing him go, he had the right attitude and was a professional you want from your players. I understand and support the argument he was no longer suitable in the role of dummy half here at the Broncos and tough decisions have to be made, but you can still do it in a respectable way.

Between Boyd retiring and Macca gone, I think we'll keep who we want to keep outside of a ridiculous Dragons - Hunt / Titans - Taylor situation.

Great news for the club and the player. He is not what Brisbane needs and hasn't been for some time. He has always given his best, not his fault his best isn't good enough. Plenty of players have had 6 times the talent and done less than he has. Thanks for all your contribution Macca and once again putting the team first by leaving.

This is a strange one though. The Knights have signed him for this season to cover for Brayley‘s ACL. Macca had an option for next year here. Is this going to be another Kahu situation?
Hmmm...could well be you know.

Don't think White will make that mistake again.

Even in the incredibly unlikely scenario that it is another Kahu situation, we're better off giving Paix minutes as the utility than wasting minutes on McCullough, if he comes back in 2021, we'll park him in QCUP, much like we'll do with Kahu this year.
