Brisbane's National Rugby League stars are being targeted by thieves, who have made off with more than NZ$166,000 worth of property during a series of home invasions.

The homes of Broncos players Darius Boyd, Ben Hunt, Corey Oates and Lachlan Maranta have been robbed over a 10-day period, according to News Corp Australia.

During one of the robberies on June 21, thieves stole an Audi A5 from the home of Boyd while his pregnant wife Kayla slept.

Boyd was in Melbourne preparing for the second State of Origin match at the time.

He says he is thankful the culprits did not harm his partner.

"That's the scariest thing. Kayla is pregnant and you want your partner to be safe when you are away travelling."

Five days later, two cars were stolen from the home of Hunt while he and his partner slept.

"There's nothing I can do now, but you feel violated, so I have to get better security", he said.
