    This BS about the Donkeys having to play Thursday nights gives them a full rest between games. What ever happened to the no five day turn around agreement?

    What’s with all the Chanel 9 games? Is Ponga the reason why we are getting them?

    Staggs out for Donkeys is a nice plus. He’s looked their best.

    The only thing that worries me about the Broncos is Xavier Coates. Other than that they’ve got nothing. Very poor looking side this year and Seibold isn’t doing them any favours. Anything but a win will be disappointing.

    TPJ could cause some problems and HAAS. Hopefully TPJ cats it or get sent. Should be winning this one but

    We have to get McCullough kicking from hooker a bit per game. Not all the time but enough to get the defense wondering.

    Pearce is the only kicker in general play we have and it is far too obvious at the end of every set to rush Pearce.

    Plus, vast majority of Pearce kicks go straight down the throat of a defender. A kick from dummy half is likely to find the ground and may cause a knock on etc. Its a variation at least.

    This is our first out and out demolishing of an opponent this year.

    Let's break their 2 week old record, 60+!!!!!!

    Broncs are on the improve. I expect this to be a closer game.

    Yeah I’d just be happy with the win especially after a short turn around.

    I think our forwards might still be tired after this week being tested by Storm pack. Plus Broncos have TPJ back this week, so I think it'll be a close one. Can see it going either way.

    I don't care what the score is as long as we win by 7 points or more, so i wont have a heart attack waiting for the game to end.
    I think we have the forwards to stand up to there big guys which is good to be able to say , and our backs are at least as talented as there's .
    I think it will be close but we will win as long as we start better .

    I hope we have their centres of Boyd and Glenn covered and I'm not sure they have great confidence in their 1 either.

    If Knights play like they did the first four rounds the result will take care of itself.

    No doubt at all the Broncs will be up for this game. We need a start really strong, if they get confidence early itll be a long night

    If we’re not sending whoever is on Boyd’s side his way multiple times a game we’re not doing something right

    Side as predicted - Fitz into starting side, Guerra to bench - Jones dropped.

    I think Glasby will start at lock this week.

    We'll look a pretty handy side in a few weeks with Barnett and Watson back.
