Wondering how confident Broncos fans are vs Manly?
I see Manly are slight favourites in betting but the game looks pretty close from most angles.
I expect Manly to have a pretty strong win, mainly because we've been geting some players back in the last wek or 2 and feel a bit of momentum building.
Broncos have impressed with their recent form, but at this stage of their resurrection can they put on 4 wins in a row?
Key inclusions for Manly are Davey and Olakau'atu, and Turbo should be better after his test drive last week.
Should be one of the best games of the round.

I think if you had wanted to do that he probably would have stayed with us. He was only going to leave for more money and a promise of an NRL spine position which he got obviously.

This is just the reality now, kids don’t want to wait around in reserve ground / non-preferred position if another club promises them NRL action. You guys did and while I don’t watch many Non-Broncos games anymore, what I have seen is that you guys gambled with him and have had a pretty decent pay off.



We never used him properly, sad that another team will get the best out of him because we have no coach's, just getting sick of every year it's the same with us, no elite culture in league in this country, always been lets see if the other team has a bad game and we might win 🤣

Hopefully the weather conditions hinder turbo slightly.

But if we can get good ball out wide against Christian Tuipulotu & Ben Trbojevic, our edge could have a field day

I think the game could be tight and hopefully the ref will allow it to flow... although it is Atkin and he loves the sound of his own whistle.

I think Broncos have an advantage in the middle forwards and on paper this looks to be our strongest lineup to date.

Turbo looked a little slower last week in his first game back... but it all may come down to how well our edges defend him.

Dwalk may cause some trouble to us through the middle as well... but might he be coming back early.

I do wonder if Manly might be bringing a few players back a bit earlier than expected, but havent been following the injury carnage all that closely.

It looks to be wet weather footy coming up so whoever plays to the conditions correctly could win it, and both DCE and Reyno come into the game in form and with fantastic kicking games.

It looks close on paper, but Turbo might be the difference.

For me I just hope to see the boys turn up and be ready to grind out the game for the full 80... which is something that we havent been able to rely on for a few years now.

I don't know about too early, I heard Manly has a contract with some big Bandage company and part of the deal is that at least 3 players need to wear bandaging each week.

One concern for Manly is if Staggs gets much space he will make life hard for young Ben Trbojevic, who got beaten a couple of times by Campbell Graham vs Souths. That will be partly up to Reynolds, I reckon he'll need another MOM performance if Broncos are to win.

Nothing brings out the best in footy players than a good splash in the puddles.

Please, please anyone on here that speak directly to the team, please tell Oates and Cobbo to stay well away from the wing when they have the ball and to use the wing as their friend when they don't have it. A tackle and a push from 10 metres in can end up taking both players another 3 metres out in the wet.

And if Haas or Patty launch themselves at the line their size will see them cross for a try. Should be a fun game tomorrow.


And always remember if your life seems dull and dreary..................it is!

If we do a head to head (and obviously there will likely be some late changes to all of this but):

1. Turbo (by a LONG, looooooooooooooooooooong way) (Sea Eagles)
2. Oates (Broncos)
3. Staggs (by a fair way) (Broncos)
4. Farnworth (Broncos)
5. Garrick (Cobbo is a gun in the making but Garrick is so underrated and experienced)(Sea Eagles)
6. Foran (Sea Eagles)
7. DCE/Reynolds (Look, I can't split them on current form, could certainly argue DCE based on rep jerseys but there is nothing in it here)
8. Aloiai (Sea Eagles)
9. No one (look, both options are pretty sad)
10. Haas (by a long way normally BUT he is playing injured) (Broncos)
11. Olakau'atu (I'm going to cheat and put him up against Riki) (Sea Eagles)
12. Capewell (I'm putting up against Bullemor) (Broncos)
13. Jurbo/Carrigan (This is controversial as Jurbo has the rep jerseys, etc but man, Carrigan has been amazing when on the field this season, playing himself into a Qld jumper)

14. Paix (purely because I don't like Walker and he's coming back from an injury) (Broncos)
15. Taupau (Sea Eagles)
16. Flegler (Broncos)
17. Hetherington (Broncos)

So (and of course I am biased), I have it SLIGHTLY in favour of the Broncs but Turbo is a massive point of difference and if Shuster comes in, it makes more like 7-7 with the tied players. TMM has been going ok but Turbo is probably the best player in the comp, so the difference is stark. I think Manly have it in the spine as DCE really cancels out our trump in Reynolds. Foran is way more classy than Gamble but Gamble just has this knack for getting under opposition skin and making his own players walk taller.

I like Brisbane's forwards more, we have a scary pack but they might be nullified with the wet conditions and if it is wet, our backline will struggle to hold the ball as they struggle with that even when it is dry. Manly's backline is far safer and more experienced and have the trump card of Turbo.

Basically, if they play to the form guide, this should be a cracking game. Just a shame that at present, The Pug isn't playing, I would have loved to see either of Staggs or Farnworth do another Talakai to him.

If games went according to the head to head match-ups Broncos would have won a lot more games in recent years!
Because you've had plenty of good talent, just lacking in organisation mostly.
Reynolds is a good start in repairing that fault, might not be quite enough this week but I do expect a close game.

Far out, the Big Bandage company would have seriously considered pulling out their sponsorship when Matai retired.
