Incumbent Blues No.1 Tedesco fluffed his final chance to stake a State of Origin claim as the hosts romped to their sixth straight win in front of a crowd of 21,197 at a wet Suncorp Stadium.

However, the victory came at a price after McCullough was knocked out cold when caught in an awkward position trying to tackle Kyle Lovett in the 58th minute.

McCullough's head was split open by the impact and he was treated for minutes on the field before being taken from the field on a medicab.

Tedesco at least finished the game, but little else went the NSW speedster's way on Friday night.

Before the match, there was speculation Gold Coast's Jarryd Hayne may be putting pressure on Tedesco for the NSW No.1 jersey.

And Tedesco did little to end the talk with a frustrating display that included not one but three disallowed tries and a stint in the sin bin.

Tedesco got his marching orders in the 33rd minute for a professional foul then watched from the sidelines as Brisbane scored two tries in his absence to jump to a 24-0 halftime lead.

BRONCOS 28, CHARGERS 20. SAN DIEGO (AP) — John Fox sent text messages to several Denver Broncos on Sunday morning, wishing them good luck against the San Diego Chargers. The Broncos will reciprocate by giving a game ball to their coach, who’s at his offseason home in Charlotte, N.C

The Broncos have extended their lead at the top of the Telstra Premiership ladder with a big win over Wests Tigers at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Broncos crossed for their second when Andrew McCullough rifled a short ball from dummy-half to Lack of resilience hurting us: Taylor.

He also couldn't take a trick when he was on the field, having tries disallowed for off-side, obstruction and a forward pass.

Then again, Tedesco wasn't alone.

The signs were ominous for the second-from-bottom Tigers when they lost halfback Luke Brooks before kick-off with a hamstring injury.

Jordan Rankin replaced Brooks in the run-on side to form a new halves pairing with Jack Littlejohn, who wore the No.6 jersey vacated by Mitchell Moses' defection to Parramatta.

The Tigers at least welcomed back skipper Aaron Woods but even he provided some anxious moments when he started the second half on the bench nursing his hamstring.

Woods received extensive treatment at halftime but eventually returned to the field after the main break.

But nothing could stop Brisbane defying a heavy track and storming to a six-tries-to-nil victory.

Brisbane five-eighth Anthony Milford pushed his Queensland cause by laying on three tries and crossing himself on 55 minutes.

Milford is expected to be placed on standby for Queensland playmaker Johnathan Thurston (shoulder) when the Maroons team is announced early next week.

In another worry for Wests Tigers coach Ivan Cleary, reserve forward John Aloiai was taken from the field on a stretcher with a dislocated knee cap in the 75th minute.

And Tigers backrower Sauaso Sue may come under scrutiny for a second-half swinging arm on Milford.

'I have got a box of chocolates for Wayne' .
Queensland coach Kevin Walters has joked that he will bribe Wayne Bennett to release Anthony Milford for their State of Origin camp. But Brisbane coach Bennett was deadly serious about stopping Milford, saying he would only make him available for Maroons duty if the Broncos five-eighth was picked in Queensland's top 17.Walters is on Monday expected to name Milford as 19th man in Queensland's squad for May 31's series opener as cover for pivot Johnathan Thurston (shoulder).
