THE Brisbane Broncos are set to unload their big guns in their final NRL pre-season trial against the PNG Hunters next month.
Coach Wayne Bennet named his best 23-man squad for the fixture which will be played at the National Football Stadium in Port Moresby on Sat, Feb 24.
Rugby league fans are expected to pack the NFS in order to see NRL stars like Darius Boyd, Anthony Milford, Matt Gillett and Sam Thaiday in action in Broncos colours for the first time against the Intrust Super Cup premiers.
PNG Rugby Football League chief executive officer Reatau Rau confirmed that Bennett’s squad would include all his top players.
“We received their travelling squad yesterday and I am happy to say that the Broncos have honoured their commitment and will send their premier side for this historical trial match,” Rau said.
The Broncos will be facing the SP Hunters with a trial already under their belts — they play their first trial on Feb 17 against the Gold Coast Titans in Toowoomba.
The Broncos will also split their first grade squad on Feb 24 with a side taking on the Wynnum Manly Seagulls in Brisbane.
Also travelling to Port Moresby is Broncos chief executive Paul White and former players in Allan Langer, Scott Prince and Justin Hodges.
Broncos 23-man squad: Jack Bird, Darius Boyd, Troy Dargan, Matt Gillett, Alex Glenn, Jamayne Isaako, Jordan Kahu, Mathew Lodge, Andrew McCullogh, Joshua McGuire, Anthony Milford, Todd Murphy, Kodi Nikorima, Corey Oates, Joseph Ofahengaue, Tom Opacic, Jonus Pearson, James Roberts, Sam Scarlett, Korbin Sims, Jaydn Su’a, Tevita Pangai, Sam Thaiday.
