The 24-year-old held a Zoom conference with the Broncos' board on Friday in a bid to prevent his $700,000 a season contract being terminated.

"He's going to front the board on Friday, that will be done via Zoom because he is in isolation and essentially he's going to try and convince a split board why they shouldn't tear up his $650,000 a season contract," James Hooper said on NRL 360.

Pangai was suspended by the NRL for breaching the game's strict biosecurity laws with infamous trip to a bikie barbershop.

Ben Dobbin revealed the Broncos would likely push for revised contract in the board room with incentives for Pangai Jr to meet.

"I reckon he is going to have to take a hair-cut on the pay," Ben Dobbin told Triple M.

"He will admit he is wrong and get a restructured contract with some clauses in it.

"If they restructure the deal to a one-year contract in the Broncos favour and he proves to the club that he wants to be there and stays on the field."
