    Broncos Down Comets In Trial

    A YOUNG Brisbane Broncos outfit has come over the top of the Central Comets in the Queensland town of Theodore tonight.
    A side made up of mostly under-20 eligible players were shocked to be behind 12-0 to the Comets after just 14 minutes, in a match NRL player Ben Hannant made a surprise cameo.
    But after some adjustments by coach Anthony Griffin at the first-quarter break, the Broncos struck into gear.
    Three tries in the second quarter had it level at 12-all at halftime, and after the break the Broncos, captained by Mick Roberts (pictured), went on with it for a 30-12 victory.

    "I thought Ben Hunt was easily our best player, and another local Central Qeenslander Brendon Gibb went well also," said Griffin.

    "This was our first real hit-out together, so to give away a start and be able to come back from that was a pretty strong effort."

    Shannon Wood and Brent Williams had posted tries for the Comets early, with the Broncos not getting onto the board until the 26th minute.
    That came when Gibb scored in the 26th minute after a bomb from one of the Broncos’ stars, halfback Hunt.
    Will Tupou and then Alex Glenn scored before the break.
    The Broncos got ahead in the 55th minute when Hunt ran into a hole off a nice ball from Palmer Wapau.
    With 10 minutes remaining, and Hannant on the field, Tim Yee made it safe with a try that stuck the score out to 24-12.
    Just before the final siren prop Guy Ford celebrated a return to his native area when he went over near the posts.
    For the Broncos, man of the match Hunt was also well supported by Mitchell Dodds and Tupou.
    The Broncos next match will be a full-scale NRL trial against the North Queensland Cowboys at Rockhampton’s Browne Park next Saturday.

    BRONCOS 30 (B Gibb, W Tupou, A Glenn, B Hunt, T Yee, G Ford tries; L Samoa 3 goals) defeated CENTRAL COMETS 12 (S Wood, B Williams tries; N Bowman 2 goals).
