BRISBANE Broncos players may have to dodge toga parties, burning couches and student riots next February, with the club negotiating to play a trial against New Zealand Warriors in university town Dunedin.
Broncos commercial operations manager Terry Reader travelled to the city at the bottom of New Zealand's South Island recently to hold talks with management of the 30,000-seat Forsyth Barr Stadium, which was rebuilt for the Rugby World Cup and has a transparent roof.
The game could be part of a double-header with a Super Rugby trial featuring Otago Highlanders.
It is likely to be played during Dunedin's orientation week, when thousands of students descend on the city to begin the university year and hold street parties.
In one incident during this year's orientation week, 80 people were treated by emergency services and 15 arrested after a street party spiralled out of control.

A Broncos trial would be expected to sell out, given the large student presence and the fact it would be the first time NRL teams have visited.
Broncos chief executive Paul White said talks were continuing. "We have spoken to the Warriors and officials from the stadium but no deal is done," he said.
Dunedin has been mooted as a possible venue for a league Test but Auckland's Eden Park was chosen as it had a greater capacity.
The city is a staunch rugby union stronghold, with former All Black and Warrior Marc Ellis its only league product. The area has produced a host of All Blacks including Anton Oliver, Taine Randell and dual sport international Jeff Wilson who also represented his country on the cricket pitch.
