Kahu's sacrifice for Broncos' finals hopes

Still smarting after missing the sideline conversion of the first of Corey Oates's two tries that ultimately proved to be the difference in the 24-22 loss to the Roosters last Friday night, Kahu won't be able to practise his goal-kicking until Thursday's captain's run but is insistent he perform the role for his team.

The 26-year-old told NRL.com last month that the groin injury that may require surgery at the end of the season has been troubling him since Round 7 and he feared that it had been impacting his performances on the wing.

Fastest ever try all part of Parra's plan

Broncos fans could have been forgiven for stumbling down the stadium steps on the way to their seat such was their shock at what had transpired, Blair's offload to no one allowing Auva'a to sweep in, touch down and smash the record for the fastest try ever scored in NRL history.

Ben's new role puts Brisbane in the Hunt

Hunt, who was meant to start the game at hooker, was switched to the bench an hour before kick-off, with Bennett wanting to field the strongest defensive line-up possible during the first 20 minutes of the match.

It meant Sam Thaiday played majority of the first quarter of the clash in the hooking position, shoring up Brisbane's defence as the Titans put together set after set on the Broncos' line.

Broncos hammer hapless Bulldogs

Two tries in the final four minutes of the first half gave Brisbane a 16-6 advantage but the key period was between the 53rd and 68th minutes when the Bulldogs' only touch of the football was Josh Reynolds spilling an Anthony Milford kick from point-blank range as the Broncos piled on 18 points to take complete control of the contest.

Alex Glenn re-signs with Broncos

The Kiwi international will be a Bronco until at least the end of the 2019 season after inking a new deal this week.

After making his NRL debut in 2009, the 28-year-old father of two young children has now played over 200 games for the Broncos and 12 Tests for the Kiwis.

Broncos' chief executive Paul White send the retention of Glenn was something the Broncos had been working hard on.

Broncos back depth despite loss

Without six frontline players due to commitments with Queensland, while also missing hooker Andrew McCullough through concussion, the Broncos fell to a heavy 28-10 defeat at the hands of the Warriors on Saturday night.

But despite his makeshift side failing to get the job done in Auckland, coach Wayne Bennett said Brisbane have the depth to ensure they should improve on last year's effort, which saw them pick up just two NRL Telstra Premiership victories through the Origin period.

Marshall to make debut for Redcliffe

Troubled by an achilles tendinitis injury that he picked up at the Downer NRL Auckland Nines, Marshall trained strongly at Brisbane's captain's run on Thursday morning but has not been able to force his way into Brisbane's best 17.

Alex Glenn has one more appointment with the doctor before he is cleared from the concussion he suffered against the Sharks last week but Broncos officials are very confident that he will be passed fit to meet the Cowboys.
