So, thought i'd share, the Courier Mail is advertising Broncos week on Kayo.

**** sake, they must have some rare games that aren't on dvd or shown every other week.

They’ve put the 2015 Grand Final on in the rivalries section. Also it looks like all of these have been put on at once?

Have they got the Lockyer games up? What did they end up picking?

Typical fare. 08 Eels. 06 Origin etc.

99 Roosters was cool, watched it today.

Kind of weird to put games we lost up on Broncos week, but okay. It's just the rotation they've had for years on Kayo.

I'm pretty sure they've played that '99 Roosters game on FoxLeague at some point as well.

NRL.com has updated their website to include a 2013-14 section for match listings. You can already access matches as far back as the 2009 Grand Final, I hope we start to see those older seasons in the coming months.

VS Dragons in 2011
Origin game 3 2006
VS Roosters prelim in 1998
VS Eels in 2008
VS Roosters in 1999

that origin game seems a bit lazy to be honest
Should have had the game against the Bears in 1998 where Lockyer bounced back in brilliant form after a shocker match for Australia. Think that was the same match Petero made his debut too!

If they were going to dip into non-Broncos games, how about 'the most dominant performance by a player in the history of the game' according to Bob Fulton?

That would have meant these guys would have had to put in effort, but instead we get the same games we’ve all seen on Fox Sports before.

Would I be correct in thinking Fox Sports only own the rights to the games they showed during these years. Weren’t they only showing games on Saturdays during the 2000’s? So they’d barely have any of our games anyway?

I don't think so because they would have to pay licensing fees everytime they roll out old footage of past players.

I'd imagine it's more about having to touch up the image quality of the games and in some cases cutting them down to fit an hour time-slot. It's just too much time and effort to do for thousands of games so they've picked the best 100 or so and played them ad nauseum. Most of them have been on streaming services for years.

Watching the Preliminary final against the Dogs from 1993 on youtube and Alann Cann has just scored the winning try with a barnstorming tank run under the posts with the famous call from rabs "Somebody stop him he will run out of the stadium!" One of the best and toughest finals the Broncos have been in. Worthy of inclusion.
