Broncos re-sign Moon

In-demand utility Joel Moon has re-signed with the Brisbane Broncos for another two NRL seasons. The 18-year-old Moon has played only two NRL games but had been heavily courted by Melbourne and North Queensland.

Melbourne reportedly offered the Caloundra junior up to $200,000 a year as a replacement for England-bound pivot Scott Hill. Brisbane chief executive Bruno Cullen says the Broncos couldn't match the Melbourne and North Queensland offers financially.

The Broncos boss says Moon cited family, friends and lifestyle as the main reasons for staying in Brisbane.
