Cobbo signs contract extension with Broncos
Cobbo signs contract extension with Broncos. The 20-year-old Selwyn Cobbo will remain a member of the Brisbane Broncos organisation through the 2025 season after the club extended his contract.
The Broncos have extended the contract of rookie Origin winger Ben Cobbo, whose previous contract was slated to expire in 2019.
The year 2022 has been a whirlwind for Cobbo, who has emerged as one of the game’s most promising players.
He has played in 13 games for his team this year, averaging 125 rushing meters and 11 tries per game.
His play has been so impressive that Billy Slater has included him in the starting lineup for both Games I and II of the Queensland Origin series.
Coach and manager
Kevin Walters, the team’s coach, has spoken out in favor of the agreement.
Walters, the Broncos’ general manager, praised Selwyn’s “excellent awareness of the game, great skill and anticipation and a feel for the game” in a club release.
“Selwyn is a joy to have on the Broncos staff/team because of his positive attitude and hard work ethic.
To quote one of Selwyn’s teammates: “The environment that Selwyn and his teammates are building themselves is huge for us, and we feel we’re on the correct route as far as growing our culture as a team section and a club.”
Cobbo is the latest member of the Broncos’ elite pathways system to sign a long-term contract with Red Hill. Other recent members of this group include Ezra Mam, TC Robati, Cory Paix, Kobe Hetherington, and Jordan Riki.
He is also being considered as a potential long-term fullback for the Broncos, with comparisons to other successful players like Greg Inglis being made.
