Brisbane's backline woes have deepened with winger Lachlan Maranta in doubt for Friday's NRL clash with Parramatta at Suncorp Stadium.

Maranta failed to finish training on Thursday due to a groin injury picked up in last weekend's 12-8 win over St George Illawarra. S

Broncos coach Wayne Bennett says Maranta is "pretty close to playing" but he will bring Jonus Pearson in as 18th man to cover for the winger - setting up what could be a NRL debut for the youngster.
