Star duo Andrew McCullough and Anthony Milford have been given the go-ahead to take the field in tomorrow night’s game against the Bulldogs. The addition has bolstered Brisbane’s chances against a lacklustre Bulldogs outfit.
Toby Rowen reports.
Andrew McCullough just may be the fastest healer in the Bronco’s squad.
The hard-working hooker was expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks with a hyper-extended elbow, but is already back on the paddock just a fortnight later.
Wayne Bennett, Broncos Coach: “We’ve taken all the other precautions, and all the others tests; all the things we need to know and Allan can’t see any reason why he can’t play so that’s where we are at.”
A moon-booted McGuire made a brief appearance at training this morning, but it was a surprise no show from star five-eighth Anthony Milford that prompted rumours of a possible injury.
Wayne Bennett, Broncos Coach: “No he’ll definitely play, he hurt his ankle a little bit the other day, come in with a sore ankle, stepped off a pavement and twisted a little bit but he did train on Tuesday and it got a bit sore after that.”
After a stellar debut perfomance, big-man Payne Haas is expected to get another run at Suncorp tomorrow night.
The young Bronco, weighing in at 120 kilograms, turned heads in last week’s win against the Rabbitohs.
Wayne Bennett, Broncos Coach: “Yeah nah he was what we hoped he could be, but as I said it’s just the start of a long career for him now, the challenge is to keep doing it.”
With McCullough now expected to play tomorrow night, Bennett’s boys will be sure to put the struggling Bulldogs under the pump in front of the home crowd.
