Broncos bucked out of finals by old boys

Brisbane bowed out of finals contention after suffering another dismal defeat - this time going down to a St George Illawarra outfit containing half a dozen ex-Broncos, not to mention the coach. Former Brisbane ace Ben Hunt was outstanding in all facets of play as the Dragons ended their campaign with a 22-12 upset that leaves the Broncos out of the play-offs for three straight seasons - something they've never before experienced since joining the league in 1988.
