Really want the Broncos to slay the dragons this week. Anything that can help us is a bonus as I have a feeling come end of the year, there will be a lot of teams still being able to qualify for the 8...for and against will be very important.

Do you want me to go and get a coffee? I dunno why but every time I got a coffee during the last Broncos game they scored. I'm happy to help; especially if it helps the Warriors in a roundabout way.;)


This Thursday night football is cool in that we get less nights without a footy fix during the week and don't get the late night double headers on Fridays like the last few years. But after having the footy start on Friday night it does feel like the weekends about to start and then I realise I have work tomorrow.:(

Dugan looks devastated. Bugger tried his hardest out there. Love the attitude and his desire to win.

When do we get a go at playing the Dragons? They look clueless on attack. Nightingale is just a class act. If he was on a different team he would score a bunch.

That's a good result for us, but boy, the dragon fans must be going into meltdown...

I've seen a stat doing the rounds showing about 4 players this year who have scored more points as individuals than the dragons have all year!

And it's not Benji's fault either....

40 points in 6 games is just awful from the Dragons. Although a few rounds ago, I was looking at their 8-6 win with jealousy.

After watching Packer play last night I don't miss him as I thought I would. Certainly Matulino and Lillybob are way ahead and even Vete is close if not better.

I think everyone has forgotten that Packer was pretty rubbish for us in his last couple seasons here.. Aussie media is at the top of that list.

Yes he had on going calf issues, doesn't change the fact.

Packer trundles forward okay, he’s a solid toiler. But not the kind of guy you’d be excited to have.

What happened to Gareth Widdop, used to be real class, now mud.

Packer was a point of contention for me and a few other posters a few seasons back.

I have never been impressed by his workrate with the ball.

Would've been considered a great prop in the 90's, but compared to the workrate and athleticism of some of the other guys running around, he's pretty average.

Dragons look so bad on attack, even though their defence seems to start out okay, both the Cowboys then the Broncos just kept shutting them out then they open up in the final 20. We play them in round 9, 3 rounds is a lifetime in the NRL and they may have their shit together by then - even if they don't I'm sure we'll play them into form.

I started feeling sorry for the Dragons, but then I remembered how cocky their fans got after their trial win earlier this year and I start loling. I'll keep loling until we play them because as always that's when it'll stop being funny regardless of how well either team is travelling.

Interesting story this one is. I wonder who the player is?

"THE Broncos have been embroiled in a locker room scandal over a plot to identify a rat within the playing ranks.

Despite being denied by the club the story reported players had to be separated after a heated confrontation before a training session prior to their round six win over the Dragons.

Senior Broncos players are alleged to have told three players including the main suspect different versions of a news story before waiting to see which version was reported in the media.

The plot worked according to Triple M Brisbane ‘Marto and Ed Kavalee for Breakfast’ host and former Wallaby great Greg Martin.

“One of the stories was about Gillett going to St George. And when it appeared, bang, they knew who leaked it,” Martin told Triple M.

Martin said that the leak resulted in players posting a picture of a rat on the suspect’s locker which resulted in a scuffle between players.

“A scuffle ensued between the player with the rat that was placed there and the player that he thought had placed it there.

Martin believes the rat hunt is the main reason the club produced a below par performance against the Dragons, despite cruising to a 26-0 victory.

Despite the Broncos denials Martin said there was pushing and shoving between players.

“Yes, he is being shopped around by his manager, but not to St George. That was a plant to discover something.

“There’s a bit of trouble in the ranks at the Broncos. There’s a leak. There’s been far too many stories.”
