After making a splash with the signing of Jack Bird last week, the Broncos are continuing to lock up top talent.
The Broncos have announced the re-signing of winger David Mead for a further season, keeping him at Red Hill until the end of 2018.
Despite the 28-year-old receiving limited playing time since arriving at the Broncos this year – he’s been stuck behind Corey Oates and Jordan Kahu, despite indifferent form from the latter – Mead has looked good when given the opportunity, and will start for Brisbane tonight in place of the injured Kahu.
Mead would surely walk into a starting spot at several NRL clubs, and keeping him around as depth is a fantastic signing for Brisbane.
Mead will play his 150th first grade game tonight, having made his debut in 2009 for the Titans. He’s also played 7 Tests for Papua New Guinea.
