The 1991 Brisbane Broncos season was the fourth in the club's history. They competed in the NSWRL's 1991 Winfield Cup premiership and failed to reach the finals, finishing 7th (out of 16).

Three Broncos players, Paul Hauff, Willie Carne and Andrew Gee were selected to make their international debuts for Australia in 1991.

Season summary[edit]

In the 1991 NSWRL season the Broncos again won the Panasonic Cup competition. In round 16 they were kept scoreless by the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, the first team ever to do so. Steve Renouf became the first Bronco to score four tries in a match in round 20. However they didn't perforom cinsistently enough during the season, only gaining momentum in August, when they won their last five matches straight.[1] The club finished the season in seventh place, missing the finals despite winning their last 5 games consecutively and finishing with the second best points scored total in the League.
