Carroll named at five-eighth in shock for Broncos

Broncos coach Wayne Bennett has surprised everyone, naming lock Tonie Carroll at five-eighth for this weekends clash with Parramatta at Suncorp Stadium.

Carroll slots into the five-eighth position after captain Darren Lockyer injured his knee, putting him out of commission for nine months. The match against Parramatta kicks off Monday night at 7:00pm.
