Brisbane have made the tough call to release highly regarded young talent Dane Gagai less than two months after re-signing him until 2014.

The son of former rugby league flyer Ray Gagai was given the bad news by coach Anthony Griffin on Tuesday following the latest in a string of minor disciplinary breaches.

Redcliffe coach John Dixon dropped Gagai from his Queensland Cup side a few weeks ago after he missed training.

"I told him today (Tuesday) he had a release from his contract," Broncos coach Anthony Griffin told AAP.

"His manager was also advised he was free to find another club."

Considered an exceptional talent, Gagai signed a new two-year deal with Brisbane on March 19, underlining the club's opinion of him as a possible replacement for centre Justin Hodges.

But following more disciplinary breaches the club has lost patience with the cousin of Broncos fullback Josh Hoffman and former winger Wendell Sailor.

It's understood the breaches have not been serious.

"We haven't sacked him. His contract hasn't been terminated but he's been told to find another club," Griffin told AAP.

"We've got standards and values and discipline and it would be easy to overlook them," added Griffin of Gagai, who scored four tries in six NRL games for Brisbane last year.

"But this club is about building a really good environment and culture so I've made the call.

"It wasn't an easy thing to do. He's got bucketloads of talent.

"Right at the moment we probably can't afford to lose him on the team sheet with Origin around the corner.

"The decision wasn't made in reference to his talent, it was made more to his work ethic and attention to detail.

Brisbane meanwhile handed 23 year-old utility Luke Capewell his debut for the Broncos on the bench against Manly on Friday night.

He's been in outstanding form for his feeder club Redcliffe, collecting man-of-the-match and players' player awards in the Dolphins' recent win over Souths in the Queensland Cup.
