It was a successful weekend for local sport with the Broncos and Lions both winning games.

But there was no time to celebrate it was back to business this morning.

Conor Tobin reports.


The Titans did their best to knock the Broncos focus on Saturday night.

Greg Bird spent time in the sinbin David Taylor put on report.

But the Broncos held on winning thirty-two to six.

That same game-winning focus was seen at Red Hill this morning.

The Broncos not phased by rough tactics.

Corey Parker, Broncos Forward: “Oh it’s good fun, I mean that’s what you play footy for and particularly in the middle, where we are it’s always gonna be like that.”

Parker disputed speculation they’ll poach rugby union player Quade Cooper after the star playmaker’s omission from the Wallabies squad.

Corey Parker, Broncos Forward: “It’s a little commical at times to see who’s the next player who’s coming to the Broncos.”

There was still seven of Cooper’s Reds teammates selected in the team to take on the British and Irish Lions, including halfback Will Genia.

And an unexpected win for the Lions over the weekend, beating Essendon by ten points, giving them their third win for the season.

The Lions were stronger team making twenty-three more tackles than the Bombers.

Coach Voss hopes to keep the same standard moving forward.

Michael Voss, Brisbane Lions Coach: “The thing that we haven’t done so far is win back to back games so that’s primarily our focus is, but then ok there’s consistency on a four quarter, there’s the week to week that we have to be able to nail also.”

And a back to back win for the Gold Coast Suns, beating the Western Bulldogs by thirty-two points at Metricon Stadium.
