Origin stars give Broncos boost

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Broncos will be boosted this week by the return of Origin stars Josh McGuire and Matt Gillett, with the pair hitting the training paddock ahead of Thursday's NRL clash with the Bulldogs.

The duo missed Brisbane's hard-fought win over Newcastle at the weekend but will be welcomed back against a big Canterbury pack to give the Broncos' forwards the punch they need at Suncorp Stadium.

They are the only two changes to this week's line-up, with Jaydn Su'A and Jai Arrow dropping out of the side.

Skipper Darius Boyd (thumb) also missed selection but is expected to train at the captain's run in a bid to return next week.
