THE Broncos have had an amazing trip to a traditional Papua New Guinean village today, with thousands of locals turning out to cheer on their heroes.
PNG Rugby League chief executive Reatau Rau was present as the Broncos came into Vabukori village to wonderful scenes.
Children and adults alike mobbed the players, who were treated to traditional singing from a choir.
The players were then called to the stage to answer questions from some children who had been waiting to ask them about their lives.
Broncos’ prop Sam Thaiday said it was a momentous occasion.
“It is fantastic to see how much the Broncos are appreciated and loved in Papua New Guinea,” said Thaiday.
“I am sure we are going to have a lot of support when we play the Hunters on Saturday.”
Said Rau: “Bringing the Broncos here is very special.”
The Broncos will play the Intrust Super Cup champions the PNG Hunters in the final trial of the pre-season tomorrow at 3.30pm.
