Broncos winger Daniel Vidot says he wants to remain at the Brisbane club

DANIEL Vidot has appealed for Broncos coach Wayne Bennett not to axe him amid growing speculation the hulking winger is set to be offloaded to the Bulldogs. Vidot’s topsy-turvy career at the Broncos took another twist on Friday night when he produced a superb two-try effort against Manly in a match he never expected to play. Six days earlier, Vidot shed tears in the dressingroom after Brisbane’s win over Canberra. The emotional winger told teammates he believed he had played his last game in Broncos colours as his management tried to lock up a move to Canterbury. When Bennett opted to rest ironman lock Corey Parker for Friday night’s clash against the Sea Eagles, the coach retained Vidot because of his 113kg size and strong kick returns. WALTERS: Hunt is the next Joey The gossip among Canterbury players is that Vidot is on his way to Belmore and will be living with Frank Pritchard, his Samoan Test teammate, before the June 30 transfer deadline expires. Vidot, who is off contract after this season, insists his heart is with the Broncos and he pledged to fight harder than ever to convince Bennett he is a regular first-grader. “There’s lots of rumours and stories going around but I was a Broncos fan as a kid and I love this club,” Vidot said. “At the moment, it looks like I will stay here and hopefully Wayne keeps me.’’ On the eve of the Manly clash, Bennett hinted at Vidot being a week-to-week proposition at the Broncos. “He’s picked on the wing this week and he said he could play so that was good,” Bennett said. “I don’t know what happens next week.’’ But after watching Vidot terrorise Manly, charging for a game-high 223 metres from 20 runs, Bennett conceded he was putting pressure on wingers Lachlan Maranta and Jordan Kahu. “Everything is on the table each week,” Bennett said. “Daniel played great, I’m really pleased for him.’’ While Bennett values Vidot’s size, he is primarily concerned with the winger’s error rate at crucial moments. It is understood the Broncos are reluctant to release Vidot, who says his stint with Ipswich in the Intrust Super Cup has rebuilt his confidence. “The Jets have helped me massively,” he said. “There’s a brotherhood there and the Walker brothers (coaches Ben and Shane) have been amazing for me.’’
