Broncos injury doubts on Parker, Hodges

Queensland forward Corey Parker and Test centre Justin Hodges are both in doubt for Brisbane's NRL clash with St George Illawarra at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.

Broncos coach Anthony Griffin said he'll wait until checking with both players on Friday before a decision is made on whether they play.

Parker suffered a groin strain in Queensland's 18-8 loss to NSW in the second State of Origin game on Wednesday night.

The Broncos' other four State of Origin representatives - Darren Lockyer, Sam Thaiday, Jharal Yow Yeh and Ben Hannant - came through unscathed and are expected to play against the premiers.

Hodges was this week named to make his return from a torn hamstring, but Griffin admitted he was reluctant to take any risks with him and rated him a 50-50 prospect of playing at Suncorp Stadium.

"It might be a bit early so we'll just wait until tomorrow and see if he's pulled up alright," he said.

"We won't take a risk, we'll just wait and see.
