GERRINGONG-product Korbin Sims is on the move in 2017, leaving the Newcastle Knights for Wayne Bennett and the Brisbane Broncos.
The Knights granted Sims a release from the final year of his deal with the club and it is believed that Sims chose the Broncos over the South Sydney Rabbitohs because of his desire to link up with mentor Wayne Bennett once again.
The Rabbitohs offer reportedly trumped that of the Broncos but money was not Sims’ priority.
“The club carefully considered the request and following further discussions with Korbin and his management have decided to grant his release,” CEO Matt Gidley said.
“We thank Korbin for his contribution to the Club and wish him and his family all the best for the future.”
