The ‘Jet’ is ready for take-off and he’s going to have another surprise starter outside him.

James Roberts has proved his fitness for tomorrow night’s blockbuster season opener against the New Zealand Warriors.

And amazingly, Jordan Kahu got through training this morning after suffering a quad injury last week that was thought could leave him out a month.

The zippy outside backs shook off concerns triggered by their failure to train with the team earlier this week.

A niggling calf problem looked no issue as Roberts completed the session to prove his place in the side.

It will be his first match as a Bronco at the coliseum that is Suncorp Stadium.

Roberts’ presence means Alex Glenn will take his usual spot in the back row, after he filled in at centre last week when Kahu left the field early in the 17-4 win over the Eels.

Jack Reed will return from shoulder surgery for his first game of 2016, as revealed by coach Wayne Bennett this week.

Kahu will slip onto the wing, leaving English import Greg Eden out of the side.

That means Sam Thaiday will again come off the bench, and Joe Boyce is to drop off the interchange as 18th man.
