About this title


The Brisbane Broncos were a runaway success from the very beginning. In 1988, when they first entered the New South Wales Rugby League competition, they kicked off an unforgettable string of six straight wins. Their winning streak ended when they came up against Warren Ryan's Balmain team. They were to play Balmain three more times for three more losses before they managed to tame the Tigers in 1990. Despite his success against those early Broncos sides, it was Ryan who gave the Broncos the label "the team to beat".
It is against this hard-won reputation as Australia's most successful modern era Rugby league club that author Jack Gallaway sets this history of the Brisbane Broncos. He takes the reader back to the origins of the rivalry between the states, and describes the remarkable events it provoked on the field and in the boardroom. With the establishment of the Broncos came the revolution against the migration of Queensland footballers to the wealthy New South Wales clubs. Today, as Gallaway sees it, there are only three kinds of Queenslanders playing Rugby League: "those who play for the Broncos...those who would like to play for the Broncos...and quite a few who once did play for the Broncos."
This is an inside story and a timely tribute to a unique football club and the dedicated Queenslanders who created and developed "the team to beat".
