The 2023 semi-finalist Brisbane Broncos have extended the contracts of a number of Kiwi Wāhine until 2025, including breakout powerhouse Mele Hufanga, Gayle Broughton, Annetta-Claudia Nu’uausala and Tafito Lafaele.

Lafaele is a dual-code athlete currently playing for the Auckland Blues women in the 2024 Super Rugby Aupiki competition, before she returns to Brisbane for the NRLW season later this year.

Māori All Star and former Black Fern 7s veteran Broughton has been recovering from a back surgery and is confident she’ll be available for the start of the 2024 NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership.

Recently-debuted Kiwi Fern Jasmine Fogavini will also feature in the Broncos squad for the 2024 season, as well as recent Black Ferns 7s convert Stacey Waaka.
