Broncos Grooming Giant Kiwi Winger
Gary Tupou trained with the Broncos first grade squad for the first time yesterday, indicating a National Rugby League (NRL) debut may not be too far away.
He approached coach Wayne Bennett for an opportunity when the Broncos were in Auckland late last year and he was given a trial contract extending until April 30.
A former New Zealand A representative,Tupou impressed for the Clydesdales against Brisbane Norths on February 21 but picked up a knee injury when playing for the Broncos in a pre-season trial match against Melbourne.
He made his return from injury last weekend with a damaging display against Ipswich.
"I hope to talk about extending my contract in a couple of weeks," he said.
