Kangaroo crew returns for Broncos

Brisbane's sextet of 'Roo tourists have resumed training for the first time this year.

Darren Lockyer, Tonie Carroll, Petero Civoniceva, Shaun Berrigan, Shane Webcke and Brent Tate joined their fellow Bronco's this morning and began the long haul back to peak fitness.

The players were part of Australia's successful Tri Series crusade that concluded in a 44-4 obliteration of Great Britain in the final.

Five-eighth and captain Lockyer says Brisbane needs to recapture the club's glorious era of the 1990s in order to be a credible threat to this season's title
