Unbelievable!! a Star Bronco’s player just announce resignation from the team today’.See Why

His name is Patty Carrigan, and if world-class athletes and fast-paced, bone-crunching collisions excite you, you won’t want to miss him and his Brisbane Broncos teammates when the National Rugby League Telstra Premiership season kicks off with a compelling doubleheader for the first time in the United States on March 2 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
The Manly Sea Eagles take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the opener, exclusively on Fox Sports 1. FS1 also will broadcast Carrigan and Brisbane in the nightcap against the Sydney Roosters.

Carrigan will be hard to miss with his charisma and his long hair and iron will to win championships for the hometown team he worshipped as a 5-year-old boy.

The 6-foot-3, 233-pound Carrigan, who turns 26 next month, plays lock, a second-row forward/enforcer in a sport that demands relishing contact and withstanding collisions.
Carrigan comes off as mature for his age, laughs and jokes easily, and incorporates Subway sandwiches as part of his routine.

He has become a fan of the NFL, especially tight ends, and recently attended a game between the Giants and Patriots at MetLife Stadium.

The American newspaper famous for one of the most memorable headlines in media history has run a 1000-word feature on Broncos star Patrick Carrigan in an indication the NRL is gaining some traction in the busiest sports market in the world. Two months before the NRL kicks off its 2024 season in Las Vegas, the New York Post‘s veteran sports writer Steve Serby conducted an extensive Q and A with Carrigan.

The video and accompanying online piece covered Carrigan’s career to date, the Vegas venture and even his love for Subway before matches. The story ran alongside articles on the NBA, NFL and MLB, giving the NRL valuable exposure ahead of the historic Manly v Souths/Brisbane v Roosters double header at Allegiant Stadium in early March.

The New York Post is the fourth most-read publication in the US, claiming to reach 90 million readers a month through its print and online platforms. It is famous for its 1983 headline “Headless Body in Topless Bar”, covering a story of a grisly murder in a dingy strip club in Queens.

Carrigan, a Fox Sports Ambassador, spoke with The Post’s Steve Serby this week about his upcoming trip to Vegas, his love for rugby and his first experience watching the NFL in person.

Q: You and your Brisbane Broncos are gearing up to put on a show when the National Rugby League lights up Las Vegas.

A: It’s gonna be massive. From my travels, I’ve experienced firsthand how much people love sports. It’s quite different to the NFL. I guess it’s a show that people can get excited for. We play the Roosters, they’re a pretty successful club over here, and have a lot of older guys and are a very aggressive, physical team, too. Our game against them will be one to watch. Probably a lot of fireworks. I know it’s gonna be exciting, and it’s cool for Australia to be able to showcase some of our athletes too.
