WAYNE Bennett has named one change to his Broncos team to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in Brisbane this Thursday night.

The Broncos welcome back Jordan Kahu to their line-up on Thursday night, but the man to make way for him is Jonus Pearson, who had an NRL debut a 21-year-old can only dream about against the Eels last Friday.

Pearson was only called into the team the day before the game, but managed to score a double on debut.

Kahu will play only his second match in 10 weeks when the Broncos battle the Bulldogs for top-four hopes at Suncorp Stadium.

Kahu has been dealing with a pectoral muscle strain that recurred when the Broncos faced the Rabbitohs a month ago.

Kahu’s inclusion is the only change to the Broncos who defeated the Parramatta Eels last weekend, 38-16.
