KODI Nikorima is New Zealand's current Test halfback and has just helped the Broncos dismantle Wigan.

But he knows when the Broncos kick their season off against the Eels on March 3, he will be on the bench.

He is also aware that competition for spots was one of the things that drove player performance on Brisbane's run to the grand final last year.

Speaking after he and Anthony Milford starred in the 42-12 win over Wigan, Nikorima said he knew the drill.

Ben Hunt will be back in the number seven jersey for the season opener after serving a suspension against Wigan.

Despite two tries, Nikorima said he was prepared to bide his time and push the pair in front of him.

"Obviously long term that is where I want to be," said Nikorima of playing in the halves.

"But Benny Hunt will be back next week.

"I will just keep pushing Ben and 'Milf' to make their game go to another level.

"And they will do the same for me."

Nikorima said he enjoyed the match at DW Stadium, where the Broncos turned a 24-6 halftime lead into a thrashing.

On his last visit to the venue his team lost the match and series as the Kiwis went down 20-14 in a series decider in November.

This time Nikorima emerged all smiles as his forward pack produced the space required.

"We stuck to the basics that we did last year and didn't change that much," he said.

"Our forwards were really dominant and that helped in that first half.

"It just gave us opportunities out wide.

"This was a lot more enjoyable because we won here.

"Last time I was here with the Kiwis we lost, which was devastating."
