THE BRISBANE Broncos' new relationship with Ipswich rugby league will go into overdrive on Thursday when the top NRL squad visits the city for a training session and to meet fans.

They will see the Broncos train at North Ipswich Reserve from 7am before an autograph signing and meet and greet session.

Ipswich Jets chairman Steve Johnson said the new three-year partnership with the Jets, Ipswich Rugby League and Ipswich Junior Rugby League was already bearing fruit.

"We are excited the Broncos have decided to bring a training session to Ipswich ... and to do it so early in the agreement is a great sign of good faith," he said. "We'd like fans to bring along their cameras, autograph pens and anything they would like autographed by the Broncos players."

Mr Johnson said Broncos captain Sam Thaiday was always a big hit in Ipswich.

"He is good friends with our players and he has been to a lot of our games.

"When were playing at Briggs Rd, Sammy used to come along and kick the football around at half-time with the kids."
