NRL: Time to shine for Broncos halves

Brisbane Broncos coach Kevin Walters says the No.6 jersey is still up for grabs as the battle to play alongside Adam Reynolds in the halves hots up.

The Broncos are priced at 25/1 to win the 2022 NRL grand final but after a few seasons in the doldrums, finishing in the top eight this season would be seen as an achievement.

Cowboys clash

The Broncos will play their final pre-season trial against the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night and there are still places up for grabs as round one of the NRL season fast approaches.

Star new recruit Reynolds will be rested against the Cowboys but the game could decide who will play alongside him in the halves when the season gets underway.

Walters has a good idea of what his side will be when the season starts but there is still a chance for one or two players to stake a claim.

Time to shine

"There's a battle on there [at five-eighth] but nothing is over the line until we get through this weekend, all rugby league selections are pencilled in and then when you get to the time you need to announce a team you write them in pen," Walters told reporters.

"Tyson [Gamble] will get an opportunity this weekend as well as Ezra [Mam], who hasn't had as many opportunities as the other guys. I'm trying to give them equal opportunities and they can put their best foot forward.

"I want the No.6 to be a typical half, doing good things with the ball, nice and safe, and defensively is a big one as well."
