The Brisbane Broncos player has received accolades in the United States ahead of the start of the NRL season in Las Vegas.

The American newspaper known for one of the most memorable headlines in media history has published a 1000-word profile on Broncos star Patrick Carrigan, indicating that the NRL is gaining momentum in the world’s busiest sports market. The New York Post’s senior sports reporter Steve Serby did a long Q&A with Carrigan two months before the NRL kicks off its 2024 season in Las Vegas.

Carrigan’s career to date, the Vegas venture, and even his love of Subway before matches were all highlighted in the video and accompanying online post. The NRL received vital publicity ahead of the historic Manly against Souths/Brisbane v Roosters double header at Allegiant Stadium in early March, since the piece ran alongside articles on the NBA, NFL, and MLB.

The New York Post is the fourth most-read publication in the United States, with 90 million people reached each month via print and online channels. It is well known for the headline “Headless Body in Topless Bar,” which covered a gruesome murder in a filthy Queens strip club in 1983.

Serby nicknamed Carrigan “the Brisbane Sinatra” for going his own way, and asked American fans to keep an eye out for him when the Broncos face the Roosters. “Carrigan will be hard to miss with his charisma and his long hair and iron will to win championships for the hometown team he worshipped as a five-year-old boy,” Serby said in a statement.

“Carrigan, who is 6-foot-3 and 233 pounds, plays lock, a second-row forward/enforcer in a sport that requires relishing contact and withstanding collisions.” Carrigan appears sophisticated for his age, effortlessly laughs and jokes, and integrates Subway sandwiches into his show. Carrigan, who is at ease in his own skin, almost sounds like the Brisbane Sinatra – because he prefers to do things his own.”
