NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 9/04/2017 Scott Bailey

Brisbane will be without halfback Ben Hunt for up to eight matches due to a torn hamstring.

The Broncos confirmed on Sunday afternoon the 27-year-old would miss between six and eight weeks of football, after sustaining the injury in Thursday's 32-8 NRL win over Sydney Roosters.

Kodi Nikorima is likely to become the first choice to replace Hunt alongside Anthony Milford in the halves, with Benji Marshall also injured.
