Broncos grand final player ratings


1. DARIUS BOYD – An assured performance at the back from a seasoned campaigner. 6.5

2. COREY OATES – Ran 80 metres for Brisbane’s first before saving a certain Kyle Feldt try up the other end. 7

3. JACK REED – Set up Corey Oates’ try with a great run before scoring the Broncos’ second. Was fabulous in defence. 7.5

4. JUSTIN HODGES – Didn’t get the farewell he desired and didn’t make much of an impact. 5.5

5. JORDAN KAHU – Safe under the high ball and tried all night. 7

6. ANTHONY MILFORD – Dynamic in attack, putting Reed through a hole for their first try, made three linebreaks and looked dangerous every time he touched the ball. 8.5

7. BEN HUNT – Had an off night with the boot and failed to build pressure. Came up with the dropped ball that cost his team the game. 5

8. SAM THAIDAY – By his own admission he made fundamental errors. Ran for 101 metres from 12 runs. 6

9. ANDREW MCCULLOUGH – Was good out of dummy half and made 37 tackles. 6.5

10. ADAM BLAIR – Produced a stellar offload that led to Oates’ opening try. Came up with some crunching hits that lifted his team. 7

11. ALEX GLENN – Came in under an injury cloud and got through a mountain of work. 6.5

12. MATT GILLETT – Dropped a ball that led to a Cowboys try, evened up the ledger by sending Jack Reed over and pulled off a try-saver on Lachlan Coote. 7.5

13. COREY PARKER – Another tireless performance from the old workhorse. His 18 runs, 173 metres and 38 tackles say it all. 7.5

14. JARROD WALLACE – Good off the bench. His 10 runs for 86 metres were valuable. 5.5

15. MITCHELL DODDS – Did his job when he got on the park. Six runs and 12 tackles. 5.5

16. JOE OFAHENGAUE – Didn’t get a lot of game time. Just four hit ups and seven tackles. 4
