Both the Broncos and the Lions are recovering after losses on the weekend.

There was better news for the Reds who triumphed in a thrilling win, and there was a special milestone for one player.

Maritza Munoz reports.


It was a close match at Allianz stadium on Friday night.

One point stood between the Broncos and the Eels at full-time, sending Brisbane home as the losers, 19-18.

There were bigger concerns in the Broncos camp when forward Ben Hannant left the field in the 72nd minute with a calf injury.

It’s expected he’ll be out for a few weeks and possibly ruled out of the first State of Origin match.

At the Gabba, there were more losses as the Lions took on the West Coast Eagles.

Poor skill errors by the Lions sent the Eagles soaring to a 108-82 win leaving Brisbane with its fifth loss from seven outings.

But it wasn’t all bad news for Brisbane with the Reds securing a 32-17 win over the Sharks.

It was the perfect night for prop Greg Holmes who celebrated his 100th game for Queensland.

Greg Holmes, Reds: “Yeha mate it means everything you know. I can remember when I was in the Reds college years ago, and it’s a very special experience, and I could do with a bit of a bigger hat, this one doesn’t fit real well.”

Following their tour of South Africa, the Reds will return to Suncorp Stadium on June 1st to take on the Melbourne Rebels.
