Carroll back home in Brisbane

Tonie Carroll has signed with the Brisbane Broncos for two season after enjoying two years in England, playing for glamour club Leeds.

Carroll said the offer he received from Leeds was far too good to refuse but he also prmised Wayne Bennett that he would never play against the Broncos.

"These past two years have been a great experience, but I can't wait to get back with the Broncos," said Carroll.

"The offer Leeds made me two years ago was just too good to turn down, but at the time I promised (Broncos coach) Wayne Bennett two things - that I would never play against the Broncos and that one day I would return."

Carroll will be an outstanding replacement for Chris Walker, who has signed with South Sydney for three seasons.
