Veteran halfback Scott Prince could make his first official appearance for Brisbane in an NRL trial in February against Gold Coast, the club who off-loaded him with a year to run on his contract.
Brisbane began pre-season training on Monday with Prince's arrival putting the club's halves Peter Wallace and Corey Norman on notice that they face stiff competition for their spots next season.
NRL clubs are restricted to two official pre-season trials but Brisbane will stage an unofficial trial against North Queensland on February 9 at a venue yet to be decided.
They will then play their two NRL-sanctioned trials, the first against the Gold Coast Titans at Dolphin Oval on February 16 and the second against the Warriors at Dunedin's fully-enclosed Forsyth Barr Stadium on February 23.
