“I feel this is the best place for my development. I have come along way in a year and the coaching at the Chiefs is unreal. I enjoy the company of the boys and love the culture here,” said Weber.

Chiefs Coach Dave Rennie is happy to have signed another two good men for his club.

“Brad has had a strong debut season and provides a genuine point of difference to our other halfbacks. He’s a top man and we’re rapt he’s on board for 2015.”

“Tom, Straws and I have all coached Quentin at national age grade level. His athleticism, his skill set and experience will be invaluable to our squad” said Rennie.
