Wynnum too strong for young Broncos

A very young Broncos’ trial team has gone down to the Wynnum Seagulls in Brisbane tonight.

The Seagulls were too strong early, leading 12-0 after 27 minutes and finishing off with a 16-12 victory at Kitchener Park, the home of the Wynnum Juniors.

In a promising sign, former Fijian rugby sevens player Ilikena Vudogo scored two tries for Brisbane.

But it was two tries to Ed Burns that came 15 minutes apart through the middle of the game which gave the Seagulls an advantage they would not relinquish.

Winger Brendan Sorensen crossed for the home team to make it 16-0 with 22 minutes left.

The Broncos got on the scoreboard when Vudogo scorched 60 metres down the left-hand touchline to score with 18 minutes left.

But that was not the end of the scoring for the night, with Tuei Robati scoring for the Broncos with four minutes remaining.

Vudogo got his second with two minutes left to cut the lead to four points.

The Broncos’ top NRL squad will meet the Cowboys tomorrow night in Cairns.


WYNNUM SEAGULLS 16 (E Burns 2, D Hoeter, B Sorensen tries) defeated BRISBANE BRONCOS 12 (I Vudogo 2, T Robati tries) at Kitchener Park, Wynnum.
