THE Broncos are having the same old problems with their number four, but Sam Thaiday is certain James Roberts will run onto Suncorp Stadium on Friday.

Ahead of Friday's home season opener against the New Zealand Warriors, Roberts has done limited work in both training sessions this week.

It reminded Thaiday of the man he replaced in the Broncos' outfit, former captain Justin Hodges.

Hodges was often nursed through training weeks before playing at full pace on game day.

“James took Hodgo’s contract, took his jersey and now he’s taken his training program,” quipped Thaiday yesterday.

“He has a better body than Hodgo but he trains exactly like him.

“These are old injuries he has brought to our club so we’re just figuring out how to manage him.

"The thing with Hodgo is we had him for so long we knew how to manage him so we just have to work out how to manage ‘The Jet’ (Roberts) now.”

Thaiday though was impressed with Jack Reed, who showed in a vigorous tackling session he is ready to return from off-season shoulder surgery.

Coach Wayne Bennett yesterday named him to start in place of Jordan Kahu (quad).

“He still has to get some medical checks, that’s the only thing holding him back at the moment," said Thaiday when asked about Reed.

"He’s training hard and doing all the tackling required.

“He jumped in with myself and Josh McGuire today so I was pretty impressed with him.

"He really tested himself."
