Fraser now has board seats on two of his major passions after also getting a seat with Motorsport Australia.

While the club’s fortunes on the field have been woeful over the past two years, its share price has risen almost 90 per cent in the past year to 87 cents.

Fraser posted on LinkedIn overnight that “when your country or your footy club calls, a true citizen must do their duty”.

“Anyone who observed my skills in under 13s in Proserpine (a team that included Paul Bowman just for the record!) would have thought the Broncs signing me up would never happen in a million years. A ‘monster’ signing … is the stuff of any kid’s dreams …

“But, more seriously, I am exceptionally happy to be joining the Board of the Brisbane Broncos and contributing what I can to assist the mighty Broncs once again achieve the success on and off the field that the members, players, staff and fans alike rightfully expect.”

Fraser is the current chairman on Sunsuper, a position he will lose in the QSuper merger, however he will retain a seat on the combined board.

He also has seats on the boards of Watpac and Orange Sky Australia. He also worked as the head of strategy for the NRL.
