Brisbane Broncos young gun Jamayne Isaako has revealed why he decided to re-sign with the Broncos and knock back an offer from the Sydney Roosters.
Isaako says he recently met with Roosters coach Trent Robinson in Brisbane.
“Trent was up in Brisbane to see friends so I linked up with my manager (Jim Banaghan) and had the meeting with him,” Isaako told NRL.com.
“We did it all pretty sensibly and didn’t go behind anyone’s backs and Trent put everything on the table.
“I had to consider all my options, and where the best options were for me to play my best footy in the future.
“Trent wanted to sign me up as a winger but I want to pursue my career as a fullback and I thought Brisbane provided me with the best opportunity to do that, especially with Darbs (Darius Boyd) coming towards the end of his career. I want to play fullback long-term.”
