Hilarious moment injured Albert Kelly celebrates by trying to do a doughnut on a MOBILITY SCOOTER after Brisbane’s big win over the Bulldogs

  • The Brisbane Broncos enjoyed a comeback win over the Bulldogs on Friday
  • Adam Reynolds played a starring role in the vital win for his new club
  • His halves partner Albert Kelly is out with a foot injury until round 21
  • It didn’t stop Kelly from celebrating, hooning around on his mobility scooter

Adam Reynolds may have engineered Brisbane’s 34-14 win over the Bulldogs on Friday night, but his injured halves partner Albert Kelly stole the show in the post-match celebrations – complete with a mobility scooter.

Kelly was the first choice five-eighth for the Broncos at the start of the NRL season and partnered marquee recruit Reynolds in the club’s round two loss to the New Zealand Warriors at Moreton Daily Stadium at Redcliffe in round two.

Unfortunately for Kelly and the Broncos, he suffered a Lisfranc injury to his foot in the 20-6 loss and is not expected to return until round 21. 

Kelly was also suspended for one NRL match for his role in a pre-season scuffle with teammate Payne Haas at a Sydney Hotel.

None of that appears to have dulled Kelly’s cheeky demeanour and passion for his team, with the 31-year-old tearing through the Broncos change room on his mobility scooter while wearing his moonboot as the team celebrated.

He happily hooned around the changeroom, tried to do a doughnut on the scooter and almost took out teammate Corey Oates in the process.  

Beer and water was flying everywhere, leading fan Regina Gordon to quip ‘As long as he doesn’t get done for drink riding’ on Facebook.

Fans couldn’t help but have a crack at the Kelly and Haas incident, which was allegedly sparked because Kelly stood on Haas’ bright white shoes.

‘Let’s hope he doesn’t accidentally run over Haas’ shoes in that,’ 6tdaddie said on Instagram.

‘Kelly gonna get done for DUI and leaving the scene of an accident, hit and run on Haas,’ Wayne Marlin posted.

While Kelly was in a jovial mood, Reynolds conceded that his new club got out of jail after the Bulldogs took a shock early lead. Reynolds guided them to victory, but said the first half was not acceptable.

‘It was pretty embarrassing, the Dogs were the better team for 50 minutes and I told the guys we needed to be disciplined and start holding the ball,’ he said.
