HE is one of the cleanest hitters to ever pull on a Broncos’ jersey and now he has come home.

Mitchell Dodds today signed a one-year deal with the Broncos after spending the 2016 season in the English Super League.

And it is clearly not just the weather that is making front rower so pleased to be home.

The 27-year-old defensive tyro, who played 75 games for the Broncos before heading to England after the 2015 NRL grand final, also got his first look at the site that will host the Broncos’ new training facility today.

Dodds said he was excited to get back on the training paddock with his old mates when the pre-season begins next month.

“I am very happy to be home, back in the sun, out of the ran and with the family again,” he said.
