They’ve selected veteran centre Jarrod Allen as a potential replacement for Jarrid Henderson.
Allen is a key cog in the Broncos’ backline, having played every game since 2013.
He’s played in all three games of the Vuls’ final series of the season, and has started the last three games in place of injured Josh McGuire.
Allen is also an important member of the young NSW side, having been named captain last year.
Allen was selected by the Vods in the National Draft, which was the biggest signing of the 2017 season.
He was a late addition to the Broncos roster and will likely be without a club until after the AFL season ends in September.
The Broncos are keen to add a defensive midfielder who can also play on the wing, as they look to add competition to the halves and give young players a taste of senior AFL football.
Allen joins a Broncos team that includes a number of former Vols, and it’s understood that he is in the early stages of negotiations for a new deal.
Allen’s father Mark Allen said the signing would be a boost to the team, and is hoping for a move away from the south coast.”
Jarrod has played with the Vodz and the Broncos and has shown he is a very mature young man,” Mark Allen told the club website.”
He has played in the Vids and the NRL, and we will have him with us in 2019.
“The Broncos will also be looking to add another senior defender, who could be another potential replacement to Henderson.
The Vols are currently in a position where they will be forced to sign two players, as the club loses the services of several key players.
The club is hopeful of signing the contracted defender Sam Bugg, who will turn 30 this month, to help fill the void left by Henderson.
Bugg has played eight games for the Broncos this season and is one of their most promising young players.
The club has also been linked with the former Melbourne Storm defender Daniel Gogia, but he has not committed to the club.AAP: Jeff HendrickTopics:austriculture,federal-government,football,nhl,nth-superleague,aurna-2400,melbourne—3040,vicFirst posted January 24, 2019 18:37:55Contact Patrick McGarryMore stories from New South Wales
