Hunters to face Broncos

PAPUA New Guinea is ready to go crazy for the Broncos.

The Broncos and Papua New Guinea Rugby League yesterday announced Brisbane would play their final trial of 2018 in Port Moresby.

The Broncos will meet the reigning Intrust Super Cup champions the PNG Hunters at the National Football Stadium on February 24, as part of a four-day visit where the Broncos will also get to engage with the community.

PNGRFL chief executive Reatau Rau said there was going to be the same level of excitement that was felt by visits from international teams.

"It is going to be a magnificent time and historic as well," he said.

"Especially with how well the Hunters went this year - I think the whole country is going to embrace it.

"Individually there are superstars in the Broncos, like the Kangaroos and Maroons.

"I believe the same treatment the Kangaroos receive will be afforded to the Broncos."

Broncos' chief executive Paul White said the Broncos would be treating the match with the utmost importance.

"The game will be a really serious test for us and we want it to be that," said White.

The match wil be the final game before the Broncos start the season against the Dragons on March 8.
