Broncos prop Lodge cleared of broken ribs

In-form Brisbane NRL prop Matt Lodge is a chance to line up against Melbourne after being cleared of fractured ribs.

Lodge sustained the rib cartilage injury in the win over the Warriors last weekend and will likely battle discomfort should he face the Storm at Suncorp Stadium on Friday.

"He will not be able to train much this week, so we will manage him through some sessions and just see how it goes," Broncos high performance manager Jeremy Hickmans said.
