Kennedy 'will play his best for Broncos'

BRONCOS coach Anthony Griffin believes new signing Martin Kennedy (pictured) will play his best football in Brisbane starting next year.

The Roosters enforcer yesterday confirmed he had linked with the Broncos, a move that came as no surprise after he reportedly agreed to a three-year-deal in late July.

Kennedy, who weighs in at 122kg, represented the Roosters in the 2010 grand final and was set to be Queensland's 18th man for Origin II this year before a knee injury ruled him out.

"His best football is in front of him," Griffin said.

"We are really looking forward to him coming and adding to the pack we have got."

The coach said the club needed more depth up front after injury sidelined big men Ben Hannant, Josh McGuire, Mitchell Dodds and David Hala for extended periods in 2013.

"It was great to get someone of his calibre into our pack," Griffin said.

Kennedy, 24, has 65 first-grade games to his credit.

Kennedy will be part of a new-look Broncos outfit in 2014 with Bulldogs fullback Ben Barba among those linked with the club.
