Titans beat Broncos in NRL trial

THE million-dollar question of which Brisbane Broncos player will inherit Darren Lockyer's prized No.6 jersey remains unanswered after Ben Hunt and Corey Norman failed to stamp their mark on Saturday night's NRL trial against the Gold Coast Titans at Pizzey Park.

The near full-strength Titans won the match 18-16, but the home side's victory came at a heavy cost as hooker Beau Falloon (suspected torn biceps) and flying winger Kevin Gordon (sore knee) left the field in the first half.

The Broncos weren't spared either. Backrower Dunamis Lui was forced off with a biceps injury and winger Aaron Whitchurch was placed on report for a late hit on forward Luke O'Dwyer.

Brisbane coach Anthony Griffin started the match with Hunt at five-eighth and threw Norman, the other contender for the five-eighth spot, into the fray in the 25th minute.

They shared the roles of pivot and hooker, with Peter Wallace also playing second receiver at times during a scrappy match.
