Brisbane Broncos Kangaroo star Sam Thaiday (pictiured) and the rest of his teammates are back in full training under the baking Queensland sun.

While Thaiday says he doesn’t expect to be a part of the Broncos squad for the Auckland Nines, he’s excited by the prospect of getting back on the field.

The Broncos had a half week last week and Thaiday says he’s looking forward to a hard week on the training track this week.
