The Broncos and Panthers are the only two clubs still in the running for Puletua. The Broncos have offered him another $150,000 on to his $300,000 but Penrith still look highly likely to re-sign the front rower for 2011.
Ex Bronco Petero Civonoceva recently told Puletua to go with his heart not head and sign to someone he knows he feels more comfortable with. Penrith coach Matthew Elliot also siad to go with his heart over his head because it would be the biggest decision of his career.
Penrith have been questioned about salary cap but they said they can afford to re-sign pritchard for 2011 and 2012. The Broncos will easily fit him in to their team with only a $450,000 offer, if he accepts.
Ivan Henjak and him have been said to be really close both inside and outside of the Broncos HQ but neither of them have commented on that statement as yet.
If Puletua signs back up with Elliot the Broncos will look at Brad Morrin (Bulldogs) to replace him and also Centre Tim Girt from Les Catalans who is also offcontract next year.
Girt is said to be a replacement for Greg Inglis, he has only played 7 first grade games for Les Catalans and is only 18 years old. In his 7 games he scored a total of 5 tries and the Broncos seemed to be pretty impressed.
Girt was born in Tonga and played his first, first grade game in Christchurch, New Zealand. He is eligible to play for New Zealand, Tonga and England.
