    No Cookies | The Courier-Mail

    THE opportunity to impress the coach, show up a rugby league legend and win some prizemoney has the Brisbane Broncos poised for a red-hot assault on the inaugural NRL Auckland Nines next month.

    Broncos halfback Ben Hunt has revealed the club will fully attack the $2.6m Nines with the battle for positions and the chance to tackle returning Sydney Roosters great Brad Fittler motivating them to showcase their best in the preseason.
    New recruit Marty Kennedy won't figure in the Nines after the front rower rolled his ankle at the Emerging Origin camp last weekend with his focus now on being fit for round one.
    The Broncos were listed sixth in the betting for the inaugural tournament at equal $13 with North Queensland, behind the fourth ranked Gold Coast Titans ($11) with hosts New Zealand Warriors the early favourites at $6.
    Drawn to play Canterbury, Parramatta and Roosters in the pool rounds, Hunt is keen to get a crack against Fittler and potentially lead Brisbane to the tournament win to build early season confidence at Red Hill.


    Yeah a chance to play against Freddy, I never thought that would ever happen," Hunt said.
    "If he is not injured by the time we play them or broken down we will get a shot.
    "I'm really excited about the Nines. It's something new to the game and I know all the boys at the club are excited about it and ready to go over and have a crack at it.
    "It would be a really good start to the season if you could get in and win something like that. It's going to be massive and there is definitely some good prize money up for grabs.
    "To win the comp would be pretty massive to win the first one." Australia's 15 NRL clubs all released new jerseys for the tournament in Sydney yesterday as excitement builds towards the new preseason event.
    While debate remains split on how seriously NRL coaches will take the tournament, with many big name superstars likely to be rested from the event, players who have committed to the Nines are adamant they are in it to win it.
    "It's not really a front rowers game but I will be happy to get out there and play with some of the faster blokes in our team," Titans prop Ryan James said.
    "I'm pretty sure we're taking some high profile players over there and a lot of our fast backs so I think we will have a really good side over there and we really want to go for the prize." For the Broncos the stakes will be more than just bragging rights, with coach Anthony Griffin reshaping his team and performances during the preseason certain to impact round one selections.
    Hunt said it was still too soon to tell who would be his five-eighth partner in 2014, but was impressed by the application of all the contenders during preseason training as Brisbane worked towards more flair in their attack.
    "There is a few boys training there at the moment and it's definitely going to come down to those trials," Hunt said.
    "If one of the boys stands out in that I think they will get the nod. "I think there will be a bit more flair in attack. I guess Benny Barba is going to bring a lot of that to our team, he is a great attacking weapon that we will have there.
    "I think we will play some good football and you know if we can keep a healthy and fit team on the paddock we will go pretty well this season."

    Their jersey for those playing at home. Despite being favourites I really fancy them to take this competition out. Mateo and Matulino up the middle with SJ, Tomkins, Locke, Hurrell, Fisiiahi and possibly Vatuvei in the backs? Can't see anyone really matching that in terms of talent.

    Pyongyang, that's in Queensland! Queensland's everywhere!

    Tomkins looks like a drongo who'd be at home in stubbies, a wifebeater and thongs and smashing the pokie button down at the local. I'm sure he's not, but my first impressions from that photo (physique especially) is not that of an elite RL player. Funny how you can never read a book by its cover.

    Can't argue with Warriors being favourites. Manly might be interesting if they play their stars but not sure the titans will be able to put it together even though they have the speed. Thurston having more space is a salivating prospect too.

    Judging by the player's faces it looks like they got them in early on their day off or something

    Warriors squad probably all over in NZ?

    Don't know if this has been mentioned and i really can't be bothered reading through the whole thread but why are we like the only team that isn't selling our 9's jersey?

    The actual reason being is they won't be able to get them in production in time.

    I'm assuming they planned ahead and didn't leave the jersey design to the last minute.

    Seems to be the broncos theme of leaving **** to the last minute.

    I think they said they'll be ready later in the year as it's being worn as an alternate away jersey when we play the Warriors over there for both the trial and the NRL game. So essentially it's a NZ-specific jersey.

    When I was at Red Hill asking about the nines jersey the guy being the merchandise counter said they won't be releasing it as the specialized shirts are only allowed so many a year and broncos are releasing the pink one instead of the nines Jersey. He said around round 7 or 8 the pink Jersey will be out.

    Typical of the NRL to restrict how many jersey designs can be sold to the public..

    No Mateo, locke or vatuvei sadly. Seems like a weak team

    Jayson Bukuya, Raymond Faitala-Mariner, Glen Fisiiahi, David Fusitua, Charlie Gubb, Konrad Hurrell, Sebastine Ikahihifo, Shaun Johnson, Solomone Kata, Ngani Laumape, Tuimoala Lolohea, Sione Lousi, Suaia Matagi, Dominique Peyroux, Sam Tomkins, Carlos Tuimavave.

    Re: Brisbane Broncos Auckland 9's Team?

    Fish, Hurrell, SJ and Tomkins should still dominate this format, but agree the absences of Mateo and Vatuvei in particular are disappointing.

    Still, that squad looks a fair bit stronger than what I'm expecting to see elsewhere. Robinson has basically said no Aus or NZ reps from the Roosters will play (No SBW, RTS, Jennings) whilst Sticky has said that Milford and Papali likely won't play.
