The Brisbane Broncos have raised eyebrows and the ire of opposition fans with their use of the head injury assessment (HIA) during their clash with South Sydney.

In the 38th minute at the Olympic stadium, Anthony Milford copped a heavy hit from Sam Burgess.

Awarding a penalty for the shot was controversial enough, but after taking the knock, Milford nailed the 20-metre penalty goal.

Only after landing the goal did the Broncos five-eighth leave the field in the hands of trainers under for an HIA.

Under the rules, a player must leave the field immediately the moment a trainer notices any of five concussion symptoms.

Milford was seen to by a trainer before taking the kick and it is entirely possible that he showed no signs of concussion before the attempt.

"Sometimes with concussion it doesn't manifest straight away — you get a knock and players, a couple of minutes after, don't feel right. That can happen," former coach Matthew Elliott said on Grandstand.

The Souths fans were indeed furious, letting their voices be heard as Milford left the field and the teams followed soon after him for the half-time break with Brisbane leading 18-8.

Their anger was so clear that police and security gathered around the referees as they left the field.

Brisbane was already without first-choice goal-kicker Jordan Kahu for the game, with Milford the only other real option in the team.

The incident is sure to be looked at by the NRL, which had a fresh crackdown on abuse of the HIA system earlier this season.

The Titans, Dragons and Knights received hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fines for abuse of the concussion protocols.
