Among the Brisbane Broncos players are Jamayne Isaako, Corey Parker, Andrew Gee and Jordan Riki. All of these players are expected to be great for the team, as they have a good mix of experience and talent. They can also play for a number of different positions, as well as putting in the hard yards in the defensive line.

Andrew Gee

Despite the name, Andrew Gee is not a member of the Brisbane Broncos first grade team. He is however, one of the club’s most decorated players. In fact, Gee has appeared in over 250 first grade matches for the Broncos. His career started in the 1980s. After stints at Beaudesert, Gee joined the Broncos in 1989.

He played in the World Club Championship, which isn’t a bad feat for a young buck like Gee. He was also in the Australian Schoolboys team in the mid-eighties.

Tesi Niu

Amongst the Brisbane Broncos players, Tesi Niu has been one of the most talked about over the past couple of weeks. The youngster has been tearing it up on the field and scoring some of the most eye-catching tries in the game. However, it seems that the Brisbane duo may be headed elsewhere. Apparently, Niu will be leaving Brisbane before the end of the season.

Niu, who is contracted for another year, has been the subject of much speculation. He’s also been linked to a number of clubs in the offing. While there’s no definite confirmation, the Broncos are said to be desperate to keep one of their young guns.

Corey Parker

Corey Parker is one of the Brisbane Broncos players who played his entire professional career with the team. In fact, Parker is the club’s leading point scorer and second most capped player. Corey is also a Queensland State of Origin representative, having played all three games of the 2013 series. He was awarded the Wally Lewis Medal as the best player in the series.

Corey Parker was born on May 5, 1982, in Logan, south Brisbane. He is married to Margaux and has four children with her.

Kotoni Staggs

Earlier this week, Brisbane Broncos players Kotoni Staggs and Siosifa Talakai surged into the NSW State of Origin picture. The pair were playing rivals in the centres and were looking for a big result to push their claim. It was Staggs who scored the game-winning try, while Talakai was left for dead after an ineffective performance.

Staggs, of Tonga descent, has represented the Indigenous All Stars in the past and will represent Tonga in the British Isles in October. He has also represented New South Wales in the NRL, where he has played five eighters.

Jamayne Isaako

Earlier this week, Jamayne Isaako was reported to be leaving Brisbane Broncos for the Parramatta Eels. However, it seems that is not the case. Instead, Isaako has signed with the Gold Coast Titans for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Isaako is a fullback who was named to play in the opening game of the season against South Sydney. However, he was substituted with Tesi Niu for the match. The Titans have been looking for outside back reinforcements, with Dave Riccio revealing they would be happy to sign Isaako. He provides strong cover at the fullback position.

Thomas Flegler

Several NRL rivals are prepared to offer big bucks for Brisbane Broncos’ Thomas Flegler. Flegler is currently under contract with the Broncos through to the end of the 2023 season. However, he is expected to hit the open market from November 1 and clubs are preparing to offer big money. Several clubs are prepared to offer Flegler $700,000 a season.

In his first season in the NRL, Flegler played 23 games. He also shared the Rookie of the Year award with Pat Carrigan. He was also named in the Junior Kangaroos’ 40-24 win over the Junior Kiwis in Auckland in October.

Jordan Riki

During the second half of last season, Jordan Riki began playing in the NRL. The 22-year-old has since re-signed with the Broncos on a three-year deal until the end of 2024.

Riki is an athletic back rower who represents Aotearoa-New Zealand. He is also a member of the Maori All-Stars. Riki is considered a potential player for the Kiwis’ World Cup squad. He has been a solid second-row berth for the Broncos. He has not yet shown much attacking output. However, Riki has had a solid defensive output.

Craig Fitzgibbon

Whether it’s on the field or off, Craig Fitzgibbon is a great role model for youngsters. He’s a seasoned goal kicker and has the ability to make goals from anywhere on the field. During his career, he has won two Premierships with the Sydney Roosters, two State of Origins, and he has been awarded Life Membership of the Roosters. He’s also made his mark off the field, and has been a mentor for players at various levels.
