Broncos' Hunt happy with improvement

Hunt's heroics were not enough, with the Broncos falling 21-20 to the Cowboys in another exhilarating golden point contest at Suncorp Stadium. 

Despite the loss, there are positive signs for Brisbane and their fans, with Hunt putting in an inspiring 80-minute performance. 

After receiving a lot of criticism during the week about his poor kicking performance in Round 1, Hunt bounced back in a big way and sent a message to his critics. 

Kahu's lofty goal kicking ambition

Drahm played 49 matches for the Reds in a five-year Super Rugby career before moving to England in 2001.

Brisbane Broncos season preview

A lot has changed since then, but one thing that hasn't is the lofty standards placed on Brisbane at the start of each season. 

2017 will be much the same, albeit without their inspirational captain who retired at the end of the 2016 season. 

Sims wants to play prop for Broncos

McGuire would be following in former captain Corey Parker's footsteps if he made the positional change, with Parker often playing in the front row before his permanent move to lock in 2009. 

Parker's retirement last year has given coach Wayne Bennett a major decision to make as the 2017 NRL season fast approaches. 

Broncos name Marshall in their squad for the Auckland Nines

New signing Benji Marshall will feature up in the backline alongside other star names including Anthony Milford, James Roberts and Darius Boyd.

Broncos finally bury ghosts of 2015

Akin to watching the normally unflappable Darren Lockyer fall to the ground and punch the Suncorp Stadium turf when the Storm stole away a semi-final win in the final minute in 2008, Boyd saw in an instant a premiership victory evaporate into thin air.

Brisbane Broncos unveil new training kit

The Broncos hit the paddock at the University of Queensland on Wednesday morning in a teal training kit, much different to their traditional maroon and gold colours.

The brighter shade was a throwback to the infamous teal jersey of 1998 and 2002 which is regarded as one of the club’s less popular designs.

It is also the colour of the city’s Big Bash League team Brisbane Heat, who have won three of their four games this summer.

Conversation between Benji Marshall and Wayne Bennett led to Broncos offer

Marshall’s manager Martin Tauber revealed how a heart-to-heart with Bennett saved his NRL career, with the veteran playmaker telling the super coach: “I don’t want to retire.”

Bennett’s lifeline to Marshall is genuine with Brisbane’s recruitment-and-retention committee to rubberstamp a contract offer by Friday.
