Pain’s smile apparently trembled.
About 48 hours after his camp requested an immediate release from Brisbane in the aftermath of the contract talks, Broncos fans relentlessly cheered on Megastar Prop in his first game since the ordeal.
As the 22-year-old stood in the center of Suncorp Stadium and spoke with Broncos director and former Brisbane captain Darren Locker for post-match coverage of the Nine, he made a crude confession.

“I’m not the kind of person who usually gets upset, but when I heard the bus come out tonight (and) when I got on the ball it made me a little upset,” Haas said Friday night.
“But I had to compose myself and stay in the game and work for the team.”
Lucky, with a light smile, assured a smile.
“It’s going to die, it’s going to die,” he said.
Haas touches the ball whenever he can, as well as when he returns from the bench in the 51st minute.

Haas made a typical instrumental performance with a 35-24 comeback win with 128 runs and 26 tackles.
New South Walesman also inspired his teammates with a strong defensive play in the 52nd minute, dragging Gold Coast fullback Jaden Campbell to the Titans’ in-goal area to force a drop-out.
Not long ago, Manley the Great launched an emotional defense of Paul Vatin Haas.
“I hope they stop blabbering on like this,” said Vatin.
“I mean, to be honest. He and his (management) team made a big mistake, but you know, fans, he’s playing with his heart for you. Just skip it.”

When Broncos coach Kevin Walters was asked about the icy reception, he pointed to a colorful moment involving Queensland State of Origin captain Daley Cherry-Evans.
The Maroon captain was hailed by Queensland fans as he addressed the crowd at the Sibas Super Stadium after three matches in the 2021 Origin series.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
“DCE came here before playing for Queensland and was haughty,” Walters said.

“We love our fans; they’re passionate,” Capewell said with a laugh.
“We weren’t too worried about it.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“Peno wrote us a message and said, ‘Guys, I’m totally committed to you. Let’s go out and win this weekend’, and we did it.
“He’s totally committed to the game. Have you seen his efforts tonight? You tell me if he’s fully committed.”
Haas has a contract with the Broncos until the end of 2024 and is earning around $ 800,000 a year, but he is pushing to become a 1 million player.
He is expected to line up for New South Wales in a game of the Origin series in Sydney on June 8.
