Swain out for Broncos

Brisbane's ironman hooker Richard Swain has lost the battle to keep his 146 game streak going against the Bulldogs in Sydney tomorrow night.

The Kiwi was ruled out at training this morning, opening the door for Barry Berrigan to resurrect his first grade career against the club with whom he played 24 games with during the 1990s. Casey McGuire will start at hooker with Berrigan coming onto the bench and playing alongside his younger brother Shaun for the first time.
