Lockyer wins game, again

7:25 am on 23 May 2009

The Brisbane Broncos have beaten Wests Tigers 20-18 away in the National Rugby League.

Brisbane skipper Darren Lockyer once again came up with the matchwinner.

Down 18-14 with 17 minutes remaining after former Tiger Ben Te'o and debutant centre Blake Ayshford had traded second half tries, Lockyer grubbered for the in-goal and then dived on a John Morris spill to give the visitors a lead they would never relinquish.

Also in Sydney, the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Parramatta Eels drew 16-16 in only the second draw this season.
