Broncos keen to return to Bundy

THE Brisbane Broncos want to hold more matches in Bundaberg after hailing Saturday night's game a success against the North Queensland Cowboys.

Despite the weather not being on their side, the Broncos enjoyed their trip when they visited the region over the past two days.

Broncos coach Wayne Bennett, who was influential in bringing the game to the region, said the team was happy to put smiles on people's faces.

"I'm pleased we came here," he said.

"To bring the game here and see so many people in these conditions reminds me of what is so good about it all."

He added it was nice to boost the economy as well.

"The Bundaberg Rugby League will (make a) profit," he said.

"We take nothing with us and it stays here."

Bennett added the team was aiming to come back in the future.

"I'd be more than happy," he said.

"Our only problem is we only get one game a year now to do this.

"We try to share it around and give back to the game that has given us so much," he said.

The Broncos left the region yesterday afternoon to prepare for the World Club Series in England.

Their first match will be against the Wigan Warriors on February 20.
