BRONCOS utility Ben Hunt hopes to offer a stern challenge to Scott Prince for the five-eighth jersey after yesterday re-signing with the club for two years.

And that will start this Friday night against the Titans at Suncorp Stadium, Hunt to play in the No.6 position, with Prince out due to a hamstring strain.

"I've enjoyed my time in Brisbane, there's a great bunch of blokes and I wasn't really interested in going anywhere else," Hunt said.

Hunt has had a strong season so far playing his utility role off the bench, mostly covering for hooker Andrew McCullough, but prefers to play in the halves.
