    Never saw anything from Tasi that got me excited. I never thought he'd be a consistent 1st grader.

    Brisbane Broncos have added some depth to their front-row stocks with the acquisition of Lama Tasi from Sydney Roosters.

    Tasi will join the Broncos for the remainder of the NRL season after gaining an immediate release from the tricolours.

    The 23-year-old had slipped down the pecking order at the Roosters behind the likes of Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Sam Moa, Luke O'Donnell and young gun Dylan Napa and has played only two games this season.

    Tasi was chosen in Queensland coach Mal Meninga's Emerging Origin squad last season and has played 30 NRL games for the Roosters since 2011.

    Football manager Andrew Gee said the 108 kilogram, 190 centimetre Tasi will add some starch to the Broncos forward pack.

    "Lama will bring in some good size to our forward depth," said Gee.

    "We are very pleased we were able to secure an immediate agreement for him so he can join our squad for the 2013 season."

    Brisbane sit in 11th spot on the ladder ahead of their match against the Warriors in Auckland on Sunday and have struggled for go-forward for much of the season.

    Tasi will join the Broncos next week.

    That's crap. We aren't paying a cent. He asked us for a release and it was granted. He is completely off the books as of yesterday.

He is now in the second tier at Brisbane. The 26th player on the Roosters cap is now in our top tier, and the difference between his salary and that of our portion of Tasi's that we pay is obviously enough to reduce our second tier cap payments to allow Napa to play. We were obviously not on the limit of our second tier but didn't have enough left to allow Napa to play.
    Great reply, thanks Newman

    Our coach knows who he does and doesn't want - sure business plays a big part but so too the decision of the coach of what individual he releases for whatever reasons other than $

    So it means Napa can play NRL without restriction. I wonder if he will replace Guerra or be a depth player?

    He is in the team tomorrow night, looks to be at Liu's expense.
