McCul­lough’s sea­son over

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

WAYNE Ben­nett in­sists the Bron­cos have the de­fence to be NRL premier­ship con­tenders de­spite los­ing in­spi­ra­tional hooker An­drew McCul­lough for the rest of the sea­son.

McCul­lough will un­dergo surgery on a torn ACL and MCL this week fol­low­ing friendly fire from Adam Blair in last Fri­day’s loss to Par­ra­matta.

Of Bris­bane’s star- stud­ded squad, McCul­lough is ar­guably the player the Bron­cos could least af­ford to lose.

Hav­ing cut his teeth in the NRL as an in­ter­change hooker, Ben Hunt is favoured to re­place McCul­lough for the re­main­der of Bris­bane’s premier­ship cam­paign. Hunt is an at­tack­ing ace, but there are ques­tion marks over Bris­bane’s de­fence.
