FIVE big names – including two internationals – will make their returns to the field from surgery at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Oval on Saturday night.

The Broncos have today named a squad packed with eight NRL-experienced members to face affiliate club Redcliffe.

Australian Test player Matt Gillett will be among five Broncos that will play their first game of 2015 after having shoulder surgery last year.

English international Jack Reed will make his comeback in the centres, partnering young gun Dale Copley.

And boom youngsters Corey Oates and Jarrod Wallace will also play their first game since going under the knife last September.

The five returnees boost a Broncos’ side that also includes Todd Lowrie, former Raider and Knight Travis Waddell, and ex-Storm prop Mitch Garbutt.

The game will start at 7.30pm at Dolphin Oval on Saturday night, and will be the players’ last chance to impress before the Broncos kick off the NRL season against the Rabbitohs at Suncorp Stadium on March 5.
