Well, in this encounter Darwin Dragons player Tevi Edwards came out on top, riding Cougar Brad Thomas into the ground with a fierce tackle at Austar Rugby Park. But the match scores told a far different tale. Report, Page 50 Lockys Easter DARREN Lockyer turned Good Friday into a great one for Brisbane as the veteran superstar led the Broncos to a 31-18 win over the Wests Tigers at the Sydney Football Stadium. In what could be his last visit to a venue he has dominated for Brisbane, Queensland and Australia, Lockyer toyed with the Tigers as the Broncos showed there was plenty of attack to go with their impregnable defence. Four first-half tries had seemingly got Brisbane home, but when the home side got back within seven points with 28 minutes left to go, Lockyer asserted his authority like only he can. He ducked down a short blind side from a scrum win to seal the Broncos sixth win from seven games. What was billed as potentially the final NRL clash between the retiring Lockyer and Benji Marshall turned into a non-event as the old master dominated Marshall hardly sighted in an uninspired performance. While the Broncos started well, there was little evi dence of the avalanche that was about to ensue when a high-flying Jharal Yow Yeh left a stranded Tim Moltzen looking like a lamp post to kick-start proceedings. Alex Glenn then did just enough to reach the line before Sam Thaiday threw off Benji Marshall in a powerful run to cross the tryline and cap an 18-point spree in the space of eight minutes. A Jack Reed fumble inside his own 20 allowed Robert Lui to set Moltzen on the way for his first of the night and it seemed the Tigers had regrouped. But any momentum evaporated when a Beau Ryan clanger gifted Peter Wallace another Broncos try before Lockyer added a field goal to cap off the first half.
