I was already happy with the Croft signing, this is just icing on the cake. The only thing that would have been better is if he’d forced Boyd out.
Actually it's more like Glenn's signing. He was being named at centre. Hopefully that shambles is over.I'm loathed to rain on the parade here but if we're to be honest - pound for pound - the player who displaced Shiba was Kahu.
The last remaining piece in the puzzle, though, given the jubilation here, is how will the Knights spin this into a positive?
Hopefully the funds from losing him can be used to retain Herbie... who I believe is off contract end of 2020seemed like a good kid ... i thought for the most part fans were a tad harsh on him ...
having said that easily the most replaceable player in our squad (not named Boyd/Macca, but he was easier to move than those 2)
losing him won't hurt as we have Arthars, Coates and Farnworth coming through (plus Kahu for 2020)
According to Chris Garry it’s already happened.Don't you all get your hopes up...he doesn't want to leave.
The Courier-Mail reported that outside back Gehamat Shibasaki may be forced out of the club to accomodate Croft’s signing at Red Hill.
The newspaper said “Shibasaki is understood to be reluctant to leave the Broncos, with Newcastle looming as a possible new home for the Townsville junior.”
The Brisbane Broncos have confirmed the worst kept secret in rugby league, announcing the signing of organising halfback Brodie Croft on a three-year contract from 2020 onwards.www.foxsports.com.au
