The Brisbane Broncos plan to use tactics from Australian Rules football to improve their kicking game.
New Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has sent Anthony Milford, Kodi Nikorima, Andrew McCullough and Jamayne Isaako to AFL club North Melbourne in a bid to improve the Red Hill team’s kicking game for the 2019 season, according to the The Courier-Mail.
Brisbane centre Jack Bird hopes the initiative will give the Broncos an extra dynamic this season.
“It’s a bit different but that’s the thing we need to improve on is our kicking game,” Bird told The Courier Mail.
“Going down there and going to an AFL club is going to help Milf and Kodi as our halves. Jamayne’s gone down to do some kick-catch … Mac coming out of dummy-half, that will help his game.
“It’s a little bit different but it’s good for us.”
Seibold used similar tactics last season while with South Sydney, sending Cody Walker and Adam Reynolds to Port Adelaide.
