Broncos lose Ikin

Brisbane's Ben Ikin has dropped out of tomorrow night's National Rugby League match against Penrith with a thigh injury. The Broncos five-eighth has been replaced by utility Casey Mcguire who has made a remarkable recovery from a shoulder injury suffered against the Sharks last weekend.

The only other change to Brisbane's starting line-up is the late inclusion of Queensland origin utility Tonie Carroll who returns from a hamstring injury to play in the centres. Brisbane desperately needs a win over the Panthers after losing four of its past five games.
