Brisbane coach Anthony Seibold will get a good look at his new spine after naming a strong line-up for Saturday's NRL trial against North Queensland.
Summer buy Brodie Croft will partner Anthony Milford for the first time, with Jack Bird at fullback and Jake Turpin wearing the No.9 jumper in Cairns.
It is the second-straight game in the No.1 for Bird, after impressing for 30 minutes a trial last week against reserve grade side Central Queensland.
"I think anyone who was at the game would say that he injected himself well into the fullback position," Seibold told the Broncos' website.
"He looked really likely there.
"For Brodie to play together with Milly in a 13-a-side game is really important. They've got to build that trust and relationship and connection."
Skipper Alex Glenn, Payne Haas, Tevita Pangai Junior and Kotoni Staggs will get to blow the cobwebs out, while Jamayne Isaako is on the bench.
