Flegler stays loyal
Tully wrecking ball prop, Thomas Flegler has re-signed with Brisbane Broncos, through until the end of the 2023 season.
Fleger has been on the radar of several Sydney clubs, courting his signature with offers reported to be around $800,000 a season. A two-year contract upgrade was inked at Red Hill this week reported to be worth 1.3 Million.
Although 2020 was not a stellar season for Flegler, interest was high from both Bulldogs and Dragons wishing to secure his services.
Flegler’s desire to stay with Brisbane is a vote of confidence in the new and very invigorated regime being put in place by new Bronco’s coach Kevin Walters.
Bronco’s old-boys are back at training in a mentoring capacity with Walters’ squad. Darius Boyd and Matt Gillett have returned to the paddock, working with the squad one day a week during pre-season.
Boyd is a former Broncos captain and full back and has found his niche working with the current Bronco’s backline.
