Brisbane keep Hodges

Australia centre Justin Hodges has signed a new three-year deal to keep him at Brisbane Broncos until at least the end of the 2014 season.

Hodges, 28, has racked up 50 tries in 114 appearances for the club in two spells, which sandwich a three year stint at Sydney Roosters.

Broncos chief executive Paul White said: “I think people can’t help but underestimate the effect Justin has on this club and its NRL

“He has shown remarkable resilience to return from a year out of rugby league with a serious injury to again be one of the benchmark players of the competition.

“His performance to take back his Test jersey after just half a dozen games this season proves that.”

Hodges’ signature follows hot on the heels of Corey Parker extending his deal with the Broncos just a fortnight ago.

Hodges, who has 11 caps for Australia, said: “I am very happy to get this organised and sorted at this stage of the year so I can concentrate on the rest of the 2011 season.

“We have a great group of young players coming through here and I know we are a chance of being part of some success in the next few years.”
