On more than one occasion Marty Taupau has been linked with a move to Super League.
That was certainly the case last winter as his time at Manly Sea Eagles ended and the CBA agreements made it hard for anyone to sign anyone.
This led to huge Super League interest and reports suggested he was close to making the move but in the end as the CBA agreement was made and he was able to sign for Brisbane Broncos.
He has now made an admission about his future revealing he wants to stay with the Broncos.
“Me and my family are enjoying our time here and hopefully we get to prolong that,” Taupau told the Daily Telegraph.
“That is the long-term goal for me but it is a performance-based industry. You’ve got to play some great football, and at the end hopefully get rewarded.
“Retirement has never been in any of my thought processes.
“I’ve invested so much time and money into getting my body ready physically, mentally and spiritually. I’ve worked with a lot of great people that help me prepare.”
He also revealed what he went through whilst waiting for his NRL future to be determined:
“I was pretty much unemployed for three months at the back-end of last year, so I am very grateful to the Broncs for the opportunity they presented,” Taupau continued.
“Every single week I have to repay that by training really hard and performing.
“From the board, CEO, coaching staff right down to the admin and an amazing playing group the culture here is just phenomenal.
“When I walked through the doors I felt like this is my family. This is what I call home.”
