    So I wanted to skip forward a season to 2004 in what proved to be a really pivotal season for the club. The Broncos were coming off a disasterous end to their 2003 campaign where they lost eight straight and they clearly needed to make some changes. In the ensuing years the game had become more...

    2022 Broncos Jersey and Sponsorship discussion.

    How many games did the Broncos win in that jersey? Didn't the Broncos debut it against Manly in 1998 in the return game where they hammered them and the officials 'squared up' the controversial season opener?

    Bennett wanted to keep Reynolds, he had no say in the matter. Johnston wanted to test his market and potentially earn fullback money. Bennett said go right ahead and seemingly the offers that came in weren't enough to entice him. I can't remember any bad contracts at the Dragons. They just had...

    Finals Week 3

    I thought for all the discussion of how much value the Storm have gotten out of their backline the likes of Jennings and R. Smith were exposed in the final. That drop from Jennings with the line wide open was a huge moment and it took Melbourne far too long to get into the game. So much of...

    Finals Week 3

    A well deserved win to the Panthers. My big concern for them was the lack of football but they came up with a couple of trick shots to throw Melbourne off their game. Once again their defence stood strong and Melbourne with a few things going against them were utterly lost. In the end the only...

    Munster with a shocking kick right as Melbourne produced a great set.

    Finals Week 3

    Big moment in the game that, Melbourne with two try scoring opportunities and the Panthers defence showed up twice. If they can score here it'll go a long way.

    Finals Week 3

    That's a couple of times now the Panthers have had the Storm on the ropes and they've left all the pressure off. You just wonder if the shoe was on the other foot whether Penrith would be up by 2 or 3 converted tries by now.

    That doesn't help, Finucane with a bad decoy run when Nelson would have been difficult to stop regardless.

    Melbourne are well and truly rattled. This is where Cameron Smith would have been so vital, who steps up in this situation?

    The Cheese's shoulder is gone. With Welch likely out for the rest of the game, everything is going exactly Penrith's way.

    What a time to kick the first 20/40.

    Finals Week 3

    Bennett did a remarkable job of lifting the team but a lot of those games could have gone either way and it usually took some piece of individual brilliance or slice of luck to go the Broncos way. I don't think the Broncos were better than the Roosters and context played a big role, especially...

    Finals Week 3

    Bennett earned the right to 'lash out' and it was pretty tame from the clip I saw. As far as 2018 I wouldn't call it complacency. Considering the setbacks they had, it was a miracle they were able to churn out so many close wins. The issue was they didn't have another gear in them which was...

    I always remember it as Prince being #1 but @BroncsFan is right. Campbell was 1, Bailey was announced a few weeks after then it was Brian Carney. I'm not sure if they were off contract or not, I believe the Gold Coast were granted an exemption and able to announce signings early. The only...

    On the Gold Coast Titans, once Souths were re-admitted the NRL were always looking to expand to an even numbers just to avoid giving teams the weekly bye. The NRL was also facing an issue with talent retention as more and more players were turning to Rugby and the ESL so opening up more spots...

    Finals Week 3

    The difference between the two teams was illustrated in the opening exchanges of the second half. Manly were beginning to get on top of South Sydney but instead of playing their roles and trusting one another you had players like Olakau'atu and Suli trying to create something out of nothing...

    Finals Week 3

    I missed the start of the game but from what I can see, Souths are making their own luck. That opening try to Walker was the key example where Gagai rolled the dice but he caught Saab out who didn't adjust quickly enough to make a play on it and it all bounced South Sydney's way. The only issue...
