Passing up on Hughes
THE Brisbane Broncos passed on the opportunity to pursue Melbourne Storm sensation Jahrome Hughes.
The Broncos were sounded out about their interest in signing the Palm Beach Currumbin State High School graduate earlier this year after the New Zealand international identified Brisbane as a club he was interested in playing for.
Hughes, 26, wanted his future sorted before the 2021 season kicked off but the Broncos were not in a position to discuss contracts given they were still assessing Tom Dearden’s future.
Hughes received huge interest from the Warriors, but was reluctant to move to New Zealand and eventually resigned with Melbourne for significantly less money.
