Lockyer set for comeback against Souths

Champion Brisbane five-eighth Darren Lockyer has come through his first training session with the Broncos and is on target to his NRL return against South Sydney on Friday night.

Lockyer ran solidly with the team at Red Hill on Tuesday morning in his first public appearance in more than a fortnight.

Provided he gets through the next few days, Lockyer is expected to come off the bench at Suncorp Stadium.

His return would pave the way for him to make his 37th Test appearance for Australia in next month's Centenary clash with New Zealand in Sydney.
