Last month, Pangai revealed that the Broncos told the Tonga international that he can freely contact other NRL clubs.
“I have contracts for this year and next year, but yes, they let me join on the rest day and told me to be free to find other places,” Pangai said after the 46-0 loss to the South Sydney Rabbits in Brisbane.
“The players must be responsible for the results we have been tossing, so if that is me, I must look elsewhere, but I must accept it every day and every week to see where my future lies.”
At the same time, it is reported that the Bulldogs are also looking for the autograph of the fired Dragon prop, Paul Vaughan.
“I think Paul Vaughn will also be on the Bulldogs,” Phil Rosefield of the Daily Telegraph told NRL 360.
“This is a complicated issue because they are discussing with the Integrity Department whether they can now sign him to resolve the eight-week suspension he owes.
“Or they can wait to sign him next year, when the suspension will end. This is the conversation they are having.”
