Eden out to kickstart NRL career

Former Hull KR fullback Greg Eden is aiming to use the World Club Series as the chance to claim an NRL spot with the Brisbane Broncos.

Eden joined the Broncos in 2015 but spent the whole season with feeder club Wynnum Manly Seagulls in the Queensland Cup.

But he did enough in a pre-season trial match to earn a place in Wayne Bennett’s 19-man squad for the clash with Wigan at the DW Stadium.

Eden is hoping to claim a spot on the wing for the Broncos this season.

“It’s a good chance to get myself in there,” he told PA Sport.

“There’s a wing spot open and there’s a couple of us fighting for it. With a bit of luck I might get it. I’ll keep working hard in training and wait for that call.

Last year just two points separated Brisbane and Wigan.

“I think the Super League is getting better every year and I think it will keep getting closer if the World Club Series keeps happening.

“It would be good to see it grow. It’s always going a tough game against Wigan. They’re a top side and the conditions are going to suit them more than us.

“We’re going to have to adapt, coming from a warmer climate and firmer grounds. We’ll just have to practise all week in training and get used to it.”
