Mead on one-year deal


EXPERIENCED outside back and Papua New Guinea international David Mead has returned to the Brisbane Broncos on a one-year contract for the upcoming National Rugby League (NRL) season.
The 32-year-old, who has captained the PNG Kumuls, has spent the last three years playing in the English Super League for French club Catalans Dragons, scoring 29 tries in 58 games.
Prior to that, Mead scored 70 tries in 159 NRL games — a season at the Broncos in 2017 after playing at the Gold Coast Titans from 2009 to 2016.
Born in Port Moresby before moving to Australia at age 12, the Tubusereia native has played for his country 14 times, including captaining the Kumuls at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
Broncos coach Kevin Walters said: “David has really good experience, both here and overseas.
“He’s played international football.
“We feel we’ve got a lot of good, young players coming through and David is one of those players who can help nurture their training and playing habits.
“He’s a very experienced player and we’re very happy to have him on board.” – broncos
