Reece Walsh’s Broncos homecoming has been confirmed with the young gun signing a three-year deal beginning in 2023.

The 19-year-old will remain at the Red Hill club until the end of the 2025 season following a spell at the Warriors in which he stamped his authority as one of the game’s rising stars.

Walsh came desperately close to making his Origin debut in 2021 but was ruled out due to injury and was included in Billy Slater’s extended squad this year.

The young gun begun his rugby league journey with the Brisbane club as a 13-year-old, before departing to join the New Zealand club.

“Reece’s return is great news for everyone at the Broncos and for all our supporters and members — we’ll get him back home next year,” coach Kevin Walters said in a club statement.

“He’s a terrific young footballer and someone who has always belonged in Brisbane so it’s fantastic that he is coming back to where he belongs.

“Reece came through the Broncos system from a young age and the club has always considered him to be one of our most promising talents.

“He returns to us with some great NRL experience under his belt and rejoins the club at a time when we are forging something special.

“A number of other emerging players who’ve come through the Broncos system have also committed long-term to the club in recent times and it’s great that Reece has chosen to do the same.”

Walsh becomes another member of the Broncos exciting group of young guns including Selwyn Cobbo, Ezra Mam, Cory Paix, Kobe Hetherington and Jordan Riki.

MANLY VETERAN GRANTED RELEASE

Jorge Taufua has been granted an early release from his Manly Sea Eagles contract to take up an opportunity in the Super League.

Taufua played 164 NRL games for the club since his debut in 2012. He was mainstay in the outside backs until 2020 and since then has spent majority of his time in reserve gtade.

The 30-year-old was signed until the end of this season but the club confirmed on Thursday that he had been granted an immediate release.

“Jorge Taufua is a wonderful example of what a true clubman is,” coach Des Hasler said in a club statement.

“He has given the Sea Eagles tremendous service over a decade and is very much respected by not only his team-mates and coaching staff, but by all of his peers across the game.

“Jorge goes about his business in a quiet way and is a very humble man, but when it comes to sheer toughness and putting your body on the line for your team, he is right up there.

“It has been a pleasure to coach Jorge and everyone at the Sea Eagles wishes him all the very best for the future.”

NIKORA RE-SIGNS

Briton Nikora has signed a three-year contract extension with the Sharks, extending his stay until the end of 2025.

Nikora was previously linked with a move to the Tigers, but has now put to bed speculation surrounding his future, commiting to the Sharks long-term.

The 24-year-old made his debut with the club in 2019 and has since played 76 games.

“I’m pleased to have been able to get this new contract sorted and am now looking forward to focusing on rest of this season, and to what the next three years might bring,” Nikora said in a club statement.

“Under Craig and the coaching staff there is a feeling we are building something special here at the Sharks and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

Nikora has also featured for New Zealand in four Test matches, the most recent being this year’s win over Tonga in Auckland.

His signature adds to the young forward pack building in Cronulla, with Bradem Hamlin-Uele and Jack Williams already re-signing, while Tom Hazelton will join the top 30 in 2023 alongside Jesse Colquhoun.

CNK’S WARRIORS RETURN

The Warriors have confirmed the signing of Raiders fullback Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad from 2023, who has been released from the final year of his deal at the Raiders to return to New Zealand next season.

26-year-old Nicoll-Klokstad left the Warriors for Canberra in 2019, but now returns home for compassionate reasons on a three-year deal.

“Having Charnze back with the Vodafone Warriors is going to be tremendous for us as a club and also for him personally,” said Warriors CEO Cameron George in a statement.

“He brings undoubted qualities as one of the best fullbacks in the game as well as so much off the field as a wonderful young man.

“He’s so excited about coming back to the Vodafone Warriors, being home and being closer to his family.”

Warriors superstar Reece Walsh has been given permission by the New Zealand club to explore a return to Brisbane after a ‘major change’ in his personal circumstances.

Walsh is expected to be granted a release by the club to return to Red Hill for family reasons, after reports that ‘bad blood’ between the Warriors and the Dolphins shut down a potential move to the expansion club in 2023.

CHOOKS PROP SWAPS TO SOUTHS

Roosters prop Daniel Suluka-Fifita has joined the Rabbitohs after gaining an immediate release from his contract.

Having already signed a three-year deal beginning in 2023, the 22-year-old will now join his new club and be available for selection as soon as Round 17.

Suluku-Fifita was a Souths junior, having in the Redfern club’s SG Ball and Harold Matthews teams between 2014 and 2017.

The 192cm forward played alongisde current stars Cameron Murray and Campbell Graham coming through the junior system before being poached by the Tricolours, but will now again link up with his former teammates.

Suluka-Fifita has played 20 games for the Roosters since making his NRL debut in 2020 and Rabbitohs head of football Mark Ellison previously was excited to bring a former junior back to his roots.

“It’s great to be able to bring a South Sydney junior back into the fold and we’re really looking forward to having Daniel return home next season,” Ellison said.

“We were disappointed to lose him back in 2018 as we saw a bright future for him in the red and green, so it’s wonderful to know that he sees his future at the Rabbitohs.

“He’s a big body, very strong defensively, runs hard, and is skillful – everything we’re looking for to complement the middle forwards we have currently at our Club.

“He’s a young dad with his best football in front of him, we wish him the best for the remainder of this season and we can’t wait to see him in red and green once again for the 2023 pre-season.”

BENNETT POACHES SECOND PANTHERS YOUNG GUN

Wayne Bennett has struck again with the Dolphins coach pouncing on another young Panther a month after Ivan Cleary took a swipe at him for doing exactly that.

The Dolphins announced on Monday that Penrith’s SG Ball premiership-winning captain, Mason Teague, will join the club on a Top 30 deal next season.

The 18-year-old lock is currently playing in the Panthers’ under 21s Jersey Flegg side.

“Mason is fast, skilful, is very tough defensively and already has the fitness to play full games,” Dolphins CEO Terry Reader said.

“He really is the full package, and that is why he will be a member of our inaugural top 30 squad.

“In the grand final, he showed his maturity by leading his team back into a game they had no right to win.

“He is yet another example of the strategies we have always had — that of building a roster for the long term, not just our entry to the competition next year — and of giving some of the best young talent in the country a shot at the NRL.”

Teague’s signing follows fellow Panthers Sean O’Sullivan and Robert Jennings as well as his SG Ball teammate Isaiya Katoa.

The Panthers have since dropped Katoa though, admitting they are now going to start investing in their long-term prospects given he’s off to the Dolphins next year.

Teague’s signing news comes after Cleary said in June that the Dolphins were “treating our club like their backyard.”

Bennett clapped back at Cleary, saying: “All of us have to remember we get our players from somewhere, and why wouldn’t you take them from the best clubs you possibly can if you can do that?”

He also questioned why Cleary hadn’t raised any issues with the Bulldogs signing Viliame Kikau and Matt Burton.
