Meyers heads for England
Friday September 17, 2004
Brad Meyers has been released from his contract with the Brisbane Broncos so he can play with the Bradford Bulls in the English Super League next season. Meyers has been with the Broncos since he was seventeen years old and has played over one hundred first grade games in the NRL.

Queensland and Australia leaves the Broncos after two seasons littered with injuries and indifferent form. Wayne Bennett was quick to praise the decision by ‘Big Red’ saying “…Brad’s style of play is really suited to the English game, and I am sure he will make the best of the challenge that lies ahead”
This season Meyers has struggled to cement a starting position with the Broncos and this is no doubt the reason behind the switch to Bradford. Bruno Cullen who released Meyers from his contract agreed with him stating that “…he has had difficulty securing a permanent starting spot with the Broncos for the past two seasons, and has obviously assessed that his future might lie elsewhere”. Meyers will have a chance to cement a starting position with his new club under head coach Brian Noble and will no doubt become a better player from the experience.
