Broncos NRLW “Original” Julia Robinson has re-signed with the club for an additional two years until the end of 2027, while also making club history with an expanded and exciting new role.
The much-loved and respected winger, who has called the Broncos home since the club’s inaugural year in the NRLW, has also joined the Broncos Game Development team, becoming the first female Game Development Officer, after a 7-year stint in the Army.
“This opportunity came up and when I was first told about it, I knew I couldn’t say no because what more would I want to do than work and play in the Broncos and be a part of such a great club, now working and playing with my mates?”, Robinson said.
“Now I get to give back by going out to schools and the community and helping pave the way future generations of female athletes."
The 26-year old has won three Premierships with the Broncos, three State of Origin series for Queensland and a Women’s World Cup for Australia in 2022, throughout her 24 game-career, with no plans on playing elsewhere.
“I feel the Broncos are my second home. When I walk in everyone makes me feel so welcome.
I’m so excited, I’ve always wanted to be a one club person and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Broncos for all of my rugby league career.Julia Robinson
“It’s such a fantastic club, especially with how much they support us - you can’t help but want to be a part of it.
“I would like a few more Premierships, I want to get to the Grand Final again and hopefully bring the trophy home for Brisbane."
Broncos NRLW Head Coach, Scott Prince is thrilled with Robinson’s extension and expanded role.
“This isn’t just good news for Julia but great for the whole club as well. I look forward to seeing what more she can do every time she steps on the field,” said Prince.
“She (Robinson) is an influential part of our gameplay and her presence will definitely bolster the strength of the team.”
The Broncos NRLW preseason will officially begin at the end of May.
