    Our forwards aren't far away from being the best pack in the comp. The arrival of Klemmer and Glasby has taken the rest of them to another level. Great to see the aggression from all of them. From a shortage of props 12 months ago to running out an Origin front row last night. Hard to see what Gillett done at the end but it got Sione and Fitzy fired up.

    Gillett is an absolute pretender. Looks just ok when he's in a great club or rep team. Now he's a senior guy meant to be showing the young broncs pack how it's done he produces garbage.

    Kurt Mann is the new Kurt Gidley in my opinion. Reminds me of him a lot. Not a gun in any position but more than capable of playing in the spine and centers (although I think better in spine). He was great last night and was doing well at 5/8 too prior to filling in for KP. Very handy pick up and someone I imagine Brown would be very happy with so far.

    Lino was excellent, I thought. Had the right side of the field clicking, scored a try himself from Ramien's good work, and kicked every goal. Nice to have some decent options at 5/8 between Mann and Lino.

    Yeah forgot about Guerra. In the presser browny said Levi will be back next week not sure if he meant back training or in reserve grade or first grade.

    Wow crazy 2nd half lol, lucky we are a class above the Broncos, watching Ramien run over Boyd all night made my year.
    Need to address discipline and get back to the little things I think, seem to have lost that in the past few weeks.
    Also is Pearce carrying an injury?? Thought his kicking game was way off and let Lino take over lst receiver in the second half.

    Apparently Milford suffered a knee injury against us and is out indefinitely.

    It's probably been mentioned but wasn't it the best thing ever seeing Ramien steam roll Boyd hahaha.

    I can watch it over and over.

    It’s common knowledge Seibold didn’t want Boyd around when he came which explains all of Boyd’s lacklustre efforts but the Broncos powers won’t budge in that regard.

    Seibold wanted to drop Boyd over a week ago but was blocked by the Broncos powers and tbh their relationship has been frosty at best.
    I guess the Broncos board are trying to save their behinds because they rubberstamped the deal and everyone knows it was Bennett’s influential doing despite his denials, you have to have your head in the sand if you think otherwise.
    Problem for them is Bennett isn’t there anymore and it’s Seibolds problem.

    The rumour that he’d be dropped against the Sharks if it wasn’t for Origin commitments is probably true but let’s be honest it’s not a fresh rumour what Seibold doesn’t want Boyd around, it’s been a season long thing and Seibold has been fed up for a while

    Does anybody else have memories of how Boyd is playing now to when he sooked at Newcastle? His performances are exactly the same. He is the most unprofessional player of his class.

    Won’t be surprised if his depression has returned and needs a holiday paid for by Brisbane.

    Yup he is the first player to go missing when a team underperforms but will take credit when the team is on a high, no different here at the broncos.
    Only time he had a dig with the Knights was the backend of 2013 when we were going on our finals run
    And of course for qld

    Anyone not named Bennett will drop him. He quit when the going got tough and it looks like he’s doing the same now.

    Boyd also has a job with the Broncos after he retires so he has no incentive to leave money on the table or go to the UK or Souths, Bennett knows all this and is probably laughing in the background.

    Heart wrenching seeing the Donkeys struggle isn't it. Shame for Milf his best half of football in the better part of 2 years the 2nd half.

    He was one of the blokes who had a dig under Seibold but was being asked to do too much too
