NRL: Lee targets Broncos success

Brenko Lee is loving life back in Brisbane and is ready to put a horror 2021 behind him by helping the Broncos climb the ladder in 2022.

Brisbane are priced at 28/1 to win the 2022 NRL grand final and Lee could be set to play a huge role after making the switch from Melbourne Storm.

Injury-riddled season

Lee was riding the crest of a wave after winning the 2020 grand final with the Storm while he also made his State Of Origin debut for the Maroons as they beat the Blues 2-1.

But then injuries struck last year with Lee not managing to make a single NRL appearance as he was stopped in his tracks.

He has since fully recovered from his calf injuries and made the switch to Brisbane to be reunited with his family and friends, and he cannot wait for the new season to begin.

"I was a bit nervous coming back to pre-season to full training but I feel like I'm ready to go," said Lee. "Finally coming home to Brisbane where I'm from has got me in a good space mentally to try and play well.

"In Melbourne I had a big family in the footy team but here I have my mum and dad and brothers and sisters and that helps clear my mind from footy on long days and hard days."

Strong start

The Broncos have had a tough couple of seasons at the wrong end of the ladder but after his time with the Storm Lee brings with him a winning mentality and has his eyes on the prize.

"No team should say they are rebuilding, you are here to win a premiership whenever you play," he added. "Last year is last year, we've forgotten about that and we just want to start well."
