    Viko and Cam King are replaced on the bench by Musgrove and Butterfield.

    Cam King is playing reserve grade.

    Great win, and they get a lot of troops back next week - Saulo, Jones, Cam King, maybe even Cogger and Starling depending on who is available for reserve grade.

    Brilliant result for both sides to hang on for 1 last week with troops missing to higher grades. A lot of players coming back down now just in time for both sides to give their best shot in the finals.

    Kurtis Dark had 21 runs for 206 metres and made 31 tackles.
    He topped all 3 stats for the game, and made his 206 metres with no line breaks and only 1 tackle break. That's working hard.
    Loughrey had 2 line breaks, 2 try assists, 2 off loads, 1 try and 7 tackle breaks.

    We could easily topple the broncos next week.

    Are the guys that have been playing 1st grade allowed to play?

    My feeling is that we have a very good group of players but have underperformed because Lowrie has been trying different combinations and moving players into all sorts of positions to see how they go.
    We have beaten most of the top sides, and had that record breaking win against the Warriors, but we have also played some shockers.
    Most of the games we have won, one or two players have had blinders to get us home - and it seems to be different players every time we win. Johns, Starling, Loughrey, Denniss, Cooper, McIntyre, Gibbs, Andrews, Huth, Dark, Saulo - all of them have been match winners in different games.
    If we actually fire as a team for the next 4 games in a row - if all the elements come together - we can beat anyone.

    Jones and King back in might help us defend against that giant forward who destroyed us last time we played the Broncos. Put Jones on him all day I reckon. Jones is strong enough to tackle a guy who should be playing firstgrade.

    Payne Haas isn't playing for Brisbane which is a plus.

    Article in which Lowrie says the boys worked harder than they ever have before to beat Cronulla.

    Kurtis Dark had stats that were similar to what his cousin, Boyd Cordner, used to have in under 20s - topped the metres, topped the tackles, topped the number of runs. I can't believe Lowrie has been using him as a 5/8 and a hooker and a middle forward, when he is clearly a second rower.

    Holden Cup Elimination Finals Preview

    Holden Cup Elimination Final Preview: Broncos v Knights
    Allianz Stadium
    Friday 5:15pm

    The Holden Cup finals kick off with the Broncos and Knights set to do battle at Allianz Stadium for the right to keep their season alive.

    Both sides are coming off virtual elimination final wins last week with Brisbane rallying in the second half to pip the Cowboys courtesy of a last-gasp penalty goal while the Knights stunned the table-topping Sharks to sneak into the top eight.

    The Broncos claimed a 40-12 win over Newcastle in Round 19 and will head into the game on a three-match winning streak over top-eight teams.

    Why the Broncos can win:

    Newcastle will be breathing a sigh of relief that Broncos enforcer Payne Haas won't be there on Friday night.

    Haas destroyed them in Round 19 with three tries, 12 tackle busts, four offloads and 233 running metres, and while he'll be on the sideline this weekend, the Broncos aren't short of big men.

    Patrick Carrigan – who joined Haas in the NYC Team of the Year – has been in scintillating form and has made the most of his recent move to the front row.

    Carrigan has played 80 minutes at prop in each of their last three wins and carried the ball for 305, 165 and 198 metres and could have a field day against Newcastle's smaller pack.

    Why the Knights can win:

    Todd Lowrie's men haven't been afraid to promote the ball this season, with Newcastle's 250 offloads the most of any side in the NYC.

    Halfback Hayden Loughrey (35) and prop Cameron King (33) rank in the top 10 amongst players, and their second-phase footy should cause all sorts of problems for Brisbane's big men who must contend with guys like Matt Cooper in open space.

    Fox Sports 2 – Live coverage from 5:10pm.

    NRL.com predicts:

    Broncos by 8.
