    From the team that will be playing it looks like Issako is going to be over Kahu for the back up fullback spot and I agree. Kahu’s best position is wing especially with his high jump he has onto kicks.
    Thaiday also had a interview earlier on in the preseason stating that he has accepted playing frontrow and he will probably be playing there. Thaiday may get run on prop over Sims especially if Oates fires in the second row and Thaiday will be able to get a run on spot for his final year.
    Im not a big fan of Opacic but he will be a solid replacement for Bird till he returns.
    The other interesting thing though is still the wing spot with Issako named at fullback. Will Issako get the nod because of his versatility or will Pearson be picked because he is a regular on the wing?

    Pearson has it with a good performance, and is probably in front now as isaako hasn't been picked in the role. I'd have loved to have seen Kahu given a trial at fullback to see how his newly healed body could handle it. I disagree with thsiday

    Pearson could get the nod because he is a specialist winger, but it would also help he plays with Opacic at Redcliffe.

    Watching the DVD last night, Capras really gave a good account of themselves and pushed the Broncos more than I would have thought. Quarters helped them and probably stopped the Broncos getting momentum.

    It was rusty but enthusiastic from the Broncos. There was a period around 60 minutes where the Broncos kept defending their line in pretty hot conditions and the guys pushed up and did a really good job. No one got lazy. That's good to see from young guys.

    Actually you make a good point re their defence. The capras were receiving a lot of good territory ball and their only try came from a dubious cross field kick which appeared, at least from the crappy stream, to be a tackle in the air.

    A lot of talk about not looking flashy in attack and players not stepping up, but you make a good point about our defence for the first real hit out in what was a stop start game.

  9. Anything less than a 30 point victory margin will be disappointing against that squad.

    Sami looks a gun centre in the making, interesting he has been overlooked for that position for whoever Cooper is.

    That's a bit optimistic for a bunch of guys who are having their first hit out of the year. Not that it matters anyways but it could go either way.

    With the strength of our squad compared to there’s there could definitely be a big score line coming up.

    RUGBY LEAGUE: The Brisbane Broncos push for the 2018 NRL premiership will begin in Toowoomba this Saturday.

    Speaking to The Chronicle yesterday Broncos second rower Alex Glenn said the team has been working hard in the off-season and is now ready to test themselves against the Gold Coast Titans.

    "We've been training since mid-November and you can really see how excited everyone is,” Glenn said.

    "Everyone is really pumped up and looking forward to game.

    "Training is great and all the boys having been working hard but now we just want to test ourselves - we want to get out there and play a game.

    "I'm really excited. I can't wait to pull on the jersey so I can get out there and play some good footy.”

    Glenn said the Broncos will use their trial game to test a number of new combinations as they look to push for the title this year.

    "We've got a few combinations we'll be testing in Toowoomba and it's an opportunity for some of the young blokes to push their case,” Glenn said.

    It will be actions and not words that will ultimately decide the fate of the Broncos this year though according to the New Zealand international.

    "You have to be confident and we're always pushing for finals footy but we know that you have to be consistent for the whole season to be there at the end of it,” he said.

    "You have to work hard every week and focus on being consistent.

    "The good thing for us is there is a lot of competition in the side - there are a lot of young blokes coming through eager to earn their spot - I like that because it means you can't switch off.

    "I can't slack off and take things easy.”

    Glenn said Broncos and league fans should keep an eye on Matt Lodge.

    "I'm really looking to forward to seeing what he can do. He's big, creative and ready to play.”

    Lodge will end his 966-day NRL exile when he lines up for the Broncos on Saturday.
