Shibasaki and Opacic re-sign

In recruitment news, the Broncos have today announced the re-signing of young Queensland born outside backs Tom Opacic (23) and Gehamat Shibasaki (19) on two year deals.

While Opacic’s re-signing is a somewhat questionable decision by the club given his offensive performances this season have been have been underwhelming, Shibasaki on the other hand has been a phenomenon for Norths Devils in the Intrust Super Cup this season, averaging 153 run metres per game and only 2 missed tackles per match.

Following the inexplicable decision of the club to release the enormously talented Marion Seve to the Melbourne Storm earlier in the season, securing Shibasaki’s signature was vital for the Broncos.

Shibasaki, along with Corey Oates and Jonus Pearson have been far and away the most productive outside backs at the club this season, with the more fancied internal rivals Boyd, Isaako, Roberts, Kahu and Bird repeatedly underperforming.
