BOOM BRONCO KNOCKS BACK EXTENSION

Patrick Carrigan could be heading to the Dolphins after he reportedly rejected an upgrade from the Broncos amid interest from the NRL’s expansion team.

According to a News Corp report, Carrigan, has knocked back a two-year extension offer from the Broncos as it did not meet his asking price, but the two parties will meet to discuss again.

The 23-year-old is signed until the end of next season but his future at Red Hill beyond that is under a dark cloud.

Carrigan will be able to field offers for 2023 and beyond from November 1 and the Dolphins are at the top of the list of interested clubs.

DOLPHINS MAKE HISTORIC FIRST SIGNING



Former Queensland under-18 representative Harrison Graham has reportedly become the first player signed by NRL expansion side the Dolphins.

There was plenty of talk linking the Dolphins to marquee men Cameron Munster and Kalyn Ponga, but it’s 20-year-old Graham who has etched his name into the club’s history books.

Graham has been touted as one of the best young hookers in the game and can also play lock.

The young gun has been signed on a development contract with scope to upgrade him, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

However, he has a train-and-trial contract with the Broncos for the upcoming pre-season and could be picked up by Brisbane for the 2022 NRL season.

Graham played for the underage Maroons when he was 17. He came off the bench in a team that included Cowboys winger Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Warriors fullback Reece Walsh, Sydney Roosters halfback Sam Walker, Broncos fullback Tesi Niu, Melbourne recruit Xavier Coates and Wests Tigers hooker Jake Simpkin.

Dolphins coach Wayne Bennett plans to bring back "as many Queenslanders as I can" to the NRL's newest franchise after securing Storm forward Felise Kaufusi as his first signing on Friday.

The Dolphins announced Kaufusi's signature on a three-year deal from 2023 with the 29-year-old to complete his eighth and final season at Melbourne before joining the NRL's 17th team.
