Player movements: Rabbitohs, Broncos
South Sydney has re-signed injured prop Luke Stuart and halfback Joe Williams for the 2007 NRL season.
Stuart played just five games this season before suffering a season-ending knee injury, but club chief executive Shane Richardson believes the 148-game front-rower will excel playing in the Rabbitohs revamped 2007 forward pack set to feature new recruits Roy Asotasi, David Kidwell and Dean Widders.
With halfback Ben Walker set to leave Redfern at the end of the season, Souths extended Williams' deal for another season. The Rabbitohs are confident the 22-year-old can become a regular first grader under the tutelage of former halfback and current Parramatta coach Jason Taylor, who is joining the Bunnies as assistant coach next season.
Meanwhile, the Brisbane Broncos have re-signed forward trio David Stagg, Ben Hannant and Michael Ennis.
Broncos managing director Bruno Cullen says prop Hannant had agreed to terms for a further two seasons, and second rower Stagg for three more years. Hooker Ennis, currently sidelined for the season following a knee reconstruction, has extended his contract until the end of 2007.
