NRL: Carrigan signs Broncos deal
Patrick Carrigan is the latest player to commit to the Brisbane Broncos cause after penning a new deal that will run until the end of the 2024 season.
The Broncos are priced at 29.00 to win the 2022 NRL grand final and can take heart from the fact a number of top players are penning new contracts.
Bright Broncos future
Kotoni Staggs, Tesi Niu, Selwyn Cobbo, Brendan Piakura, TC Robati, Xavier Willison, Jordan Riki, Kobe Hetherington and Keenan Palasia have already committed and Carrigan has now followed.
The 23-year-old was also a target for the Dolphins, who wanted him on board for their inaugural NRL campaign in 2023, but they have been left disappointed.

The Queenslander was under contract until the end of 2022 but he has penned a two-year extension and will now add to the 46 NRL appearances he has made for the club.
Captain in the making
The Broncos have yet to name their captain for next season and Carrigan has been mentioned as a possible candidate along with new signing Adam Reynolds.
That is how highly the Broncos rate him and Football and Performance Director Ben Ikin is delighted to get the deal over the line.
"I'm very happy Pat chose to extend his stay at the Brisbane Broncos - he's been in our system for a long time and is highly regarded by everyone at the club," Ikin said after the deal was announced.
"Pat’s a quality player and a great leader, and we're lucky to have him."
