Ex-Hull FC halfback Albert Kelly scores sensational try for Brisbane Broncos

Albert Kelly proved to be settling in seamlessly at the Brisbane Broncos with a superb length-of-the-field effort in his side’s shock win over South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The former Hull FC fullback – who spent four seasons at the MKM Stadium – joined the Broncos ahead of the 2021 NRL season and endured a tough start to life with the misfiring Brisbane outfit last year.

However, he appears to have found his mojo and his try proved decisive in overcoming the Rabbitohs.

30-year-old Kelly has made a combined 171 NRL and Super League appearances since debuting in 2010 and has been impressive since making his Australian comeback with the Broncos midway through the 2021 season.

He made a number of appearances for Brisbane last season after returning from England where he played 118 games for Hull KR and then Hull Fs between 2015 and 2020, scoring 67 tries in total in the Super League.

He played a total of 47 NRL games for Cronulla and the Titans from 2010 to 2014 before his overseas stint.

On his return to Australia earlier in 2021, he played consistent football for Broncos Affiliate South Logan Magpies before being given another shot at the NRL with a debut for Brisbane in Round 11 against the Sydney Roosters.

That night, Kelly helped orchestrate a memorable 34-16 upset at the Sydney Cricket Ground and he has been a part of the Broncos’ NRL squad ever since.
