Veteran Brisbane Broncos forward Sam Thaiday has not given up on playing another NRL season.

The former club captain had claimed 2018 would mark his 16th and final season after coach Wayne Bennett told the off-contract forward he did not fit into his future plans.

But Thaiday, 32, has not ruled out earning a contract extension with a big 2018, starting with Saturday NRL trial against the Gold Coast Titans at Toowoomba.
