Hayne can be X-factor against Broncos

PARRAMATTA co-captain Reni Maitua says Jarryd Hayne can be the x-factor in Brisbane tomorrow night against a Broncos side walking the finals tightrope.

Hayne returned from a hamstring injury against Wests Tigers last week, coach Ricky Stuart springing a surprise by playing the star fullback in the No.6 jersey.

"Jarryd was great. I think it was a good ploy by Ricky to put him in the line," Maitua said. "He was brilliant at five-eight and brings a lot of confidence to the team. I'm sure he'll do another job for us this week."

Brisbane is 11th on the table, three points behind the eighth-placed Titans.
