Former Broncos skipper Gordon Tallis believes James Roberts has the ability to become an NRL superstar.

The 2016 Indigenous All Star has been in wonderful form for Brisbane in the last couple of weeks and his hattrick of tries in Friday nights narrow defeat of the Titans suggests he’s very close to his best form.

Off field issues have derailed Roberts in the past and Tallis (pictured) believes all he needs is an interest away from footy to allow him to unlock his endless potential on the football field.
