Capewell To Join Broncos from 2022

Queensland State Of Origin representative Kurt Capewell will become a Brisbane Bronco from 2022 onwards.


The backrower from Charleville in western Queensland joins the Broncos on a three-year contract until the end of the 2024 season.

The 27-year-old has played 84 NRL games since debuting in 2016 for the Cronulla Sharks.

He moved to the Panthers last year and went on to play in a Grand Final before being selected for the Maroon’s upset Origin series win over the Blues. He has played five games for Queensland in total.

It’s a return home for Capewell, who played for the Broncos’ NYC team in 2012-13, as well as for the Ipswich Jets in their Queensland Cup Grand Final win in 2015.

In choosing to become a Bronco, Capewell joins new 2022 signings Adam Reynolds and fellow 2020 Maroon Origin winner Brenko Lee, as well as host of current players who have all committed to the future of the club.

Kotoni Staggs, Jordan Riki, David Mead and exciting youngsters Brendan Piakura, Teui “TC” Robati and Selwyn Cobbo have all committed to the Club in recent months, joining a list of long-term loyal Broncos including Payne Haas, Pat Carrigan, Herbie Farnworth, Tom Flegler and Ethan Bullemor.

Broncos Football & Performance Director Ben Ikin said: “Kurt has talent, footy smarts, experience and a strong work ethic, all attributes we want here at the Broncos.

“In the past 12 months, he has played in an NRL Grand Final and a winning Queensland State Of Origin team – that experience will be invaluable for our playing group.

“We have some great emerging talent here at the club who are learning to be true rugby league professionals, and I think Kurt will be a perfect addition to the squad in that respect.”

Credit where credit is due, between this, Reynolds and Brenko Lee, these are the exact sort of signings we should have been making 12 months ago when we were well and truly spoon bound as they are the exact same holes we needed to fill back then.

If we can pull off Hodgson and at a stretch get some depth to fill our Fullback stocks, you could argue Brisbane have done almost as well as anyone else in their recruitment drive for next year.

It's honestly incredible what we can achieve when you don't have a monstorously incompetent fool who's asleep at his desk 'running' the club as CEO.

Good start for Ikin.

I know Fox Sports have given the credit to Ikin ... but since the signing can't be announced officially until 10 days after the contract is signed ... the majority of this work on this signing was done by others as at the latest, the contract had to have been signed on day 1 of Ikin's tenure

The Capewell rumour has been bubbling gently for a few months. If Ikin was responsible he was working behind the scenes for a very long time.
