Strike centre Kotoni Staggs has declared his loyalty to the Broncos, saying he loves the club and is living out a childhood dream by playing for Brisbane.
The Broncos’ Best Back for the past two seasons, currently sidelined until mid-season after knee surgery, has been the centre of media reports that a host of other clubs want to sign him in the future.
But Staggs was definitive when questioned by media about his future with the Broncos: “I’m here and I’m going nowhere. I love the club, growing up as a young kid this is where I wanted to be, it was a dream to play at the Broncos growing up watching Darren Lockyer, he was my idol.
“I don’t want to be anywhere else but here and I just want to play good footy when I get back on the field.”
The 22-year-old said his recovery from knee surgery was well on track, and he would continue to work with the high-quality Broncos conditioning staff to make sure he is ready to go by mid-season.
“I’m probably a couple of weeks ahead but I’m not rushing, that’s the biggest thing I don’t want to do, that’s rush and do it again,” said Staggs.
“I’ll just take my time and take the whole nine months and come back where I left off.”
