Josh Charnley of Wigan Warriors is tackled by Aaron Whitchurch of Brisbane Broncos during the World Club Series match between Wigan Warriors and Brisbane Broncos.

Forgotten utility Aaron Whitchurch says he has a point to prove to super coach Wayne Bennett over the demotion that has left him fighting for his career at the Broncos.

If there was any doubt over Whitchurch’s desire to resurrect his NRL career, it was swept away on Tuesday as the 23-year-old powered through his second day of Brisbane’s pre-season.

“I’m keen to prove a point that I can play NRL at the Broncos,” said Whitchurch, who spent most of the 2015 season languishing at feeder club Redcliffe in the Intrust Super Cup.

Whitchurch has sufficient incentive to perform. The rugged utility is off-contract next year and is determined not to be jettisoned from the Broncos for the second time in his career.



  1. Had a pretty promising debut but completely fell off the radar in his few NRL games since. Best bet would be to move on elsewhere if he wants to play first grade.

  2. Powerful and mobile back rower/ centre problem is the guy has problems with feelings in his hands and feet before a game. If this can not be taken care of then time to look for a new profession unfortunately. Would be a big star if these problems could be overcome

  3. He fell off the radar because of his back, it was a bad back injury, he only managed to JUST get back on the field.

  4. Broncos also have a huge amount of depth in second rowers and second rowers which can play centre if needed (Oates, Glenn, Gillett). He’s better off moving
