Breakout playmaker Ezra Mam has become the latest Brisbane Bronco to commit long-term to the club, signing a five-year contract extension to the end of the 2029 season.
The 21-year-old set the NRL alight during 2023 in his first full season in the top grade, making the Broncos’ No.6 jersey his own with a string of standout performances.
A Broncos Academy graduate who started in the club’s talent pathways aged 13, Mam made his NRL debut in Round 11, 2022 against the Knights and now has 38 appearances under his belt including 24 tries and 16 try assists.
His 2023 season – capped by a three-try performance in the Grand Final – saw him make 25 NRL appearances for 18 tries, 9 try assists, 10 line break assists, 56 tackle breaks, 9 offloads and 98 running metres per game.
Mam joins a host of teammates to commit to the club’s future until at least the end of 2025 including Payne Haas, Pat Carrigan, Reece Walsh, Jordan Riki, Brendan Piakura, Kotoni Staggs, Selwyn Cobbo, Kobe Hetherington, Jesse Arthars, Tyson Smoothy, Corey Jensen, Deine Mariner, Xavier Willison, Tristan Sailor and Blake Mozer.
Broncos Coach Kev Walters said Mam’s retention was fantastic for the Club and another key player locked in for the long-term.
“Ezra is a born-and-bred Bronco and it’s great that he is staying where he belongs,” said Walters.
“He is an exciting player but he also likes to get in there and do the tough stuff and to do what needs to be done for his team.
“We have only scratched the surface on what Ez can do – we’ll keep on working with him to improve his game and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together over the years ahead.”
