We are a far cry from the days of Lockyer, Walters, Tallis and Webcke amongst others dominating the NRL in the maroon and gold of the Broncos, however are we on the verge of a Renaissance period in Brisbane?

The Broncos have one of the youngest rosters in the NRL with the rawest talent, the question is how long will it take these players to flourish?


It’s safe to say that two already have.

Payne Haas and David Fifita Jr hit the ground running when making the step up to the NRL and in 2019 averaged 185.16 and 96.71 running metres per game respectively.

The area of uncertainty surrounds the halves, Brodie Croft is quite inexperienced and has displayed a level of form in the past that just doesn’t cut it in first grade.

In saying that he has looked good heading into 2020.

 

Anthony Milford is a proven talent that has regressed in the past couple of seasons, but if he finds his place in the squad with the right people around him he should be fine.

There are also the likes of Jamayne Isaako and Kotoni Staggs who have received big raps coming into the NRL and to this point aren’t quite living up to that hype, although there have been glimpses of great things.

Thomas Flagler and Patrick Carrigan are another two players who are ready to set the NRL alight.

If these players can remain together and play to the best of their abilities then we are on course for another Broncos dynasty.
