Timu's Time Has Come

CALEB Timu will play his first ‘proper’ game of rugby league in over two years at Kougari Oval tonight.

The second rower had his first run on the field in the shortened format of the Auckland Nines last week after taking two seasons off to complete a faith mission in New Zealand and the Pacific.

But tonight the real stuff starts when he runs out for the Broncos against the Wynnum Seagulls.

Timu showed plenty of verve with the ball last weekend, but the 13-man game will come with its challenges.

“He has been away for two years and have come back to us in great condition,” said Broncos’ coach Kurt Richards, who will take the squad with Wayne Bennett (World All Stars) and Steve Kearney (World Club Series) away on other business.

“Attack is a great part of the game for him but he will have to work on defence.

“Coming back after being two years out of the game is quite a tough thing.”

The Broncos have put together a side that has some experience and also plenty of youth for the match with affiliate club Wynnum.

Aaron Whitchurch, Francis Molo and Joe Boyce have all played NRL.

“There is a good team there which shows we have a bit more depth than previous years,” said Richards.

“It’s a good mix of players for this game.”

The match will start at 7.30pm, with the Broncos under 20s to play Wynnum’s Brisbane Rugby League side from 6pm.
