Gillett secured for four seasons

MATT Gillett has signed a new four-year deal with the Brisbane Broncos, providing the club with a timely boost ahead of Friday night's semi-final clash with the North Queensland Cowboys.

With his existing contract set to expire at the end of this season, the second-rower has committed to the club until at least the age of 32.

Broncos chief executive Paul White said the new deal proved just how much commitment Gillett, a Queensland and Kangaroos regular and former Bribie Island junior, had for the club.

"Matt is a wonderful rugby league player, but also a thoroughly decent person,” he said.

"His efforts for the club on and off the field do not go unnoticed.

"We are really excited Matt has chosen to commit to the Broncos for such a long time.

"It shows the regard he has for the club, but also exhibits just how much the Broncos want to make Matt a part of our future.

"He is part of a group of young leaders at our club that are very important to us as we move forward.

"We congratulate him and his young family on this announcement, and look forward to watching him grow and develop over the coming years.”

Gillett made his NRL debut in round one of 2010 and became a Queensland Origin player two years later.
