    Does anyone know why alot of broncos players who will get nowhere near the broncos top 21 for nrl week 1 aren't listed in the QLD cup or even lower grades? I may be blind but I could swear...

    Turpin (could be top 21 but not 17)

    Am I missing something, or simply blind as a bat?

    Also interesting from a broncos perspective is that tagataese on the bench behind fai (what a disappointment that has been after his preseason talk up), and boyd and paix both starting halfbacks - wow what a shootout it is going to be between them this year, with o'sullivan and Dearden thrown into it as well!

  2. I wouldn't be surprised if a few of them pop up as late changes.

    Especially in HD and MM Cup.

    Nothing wrong with a combo

    Half time in Cairns and Pride 12-4.

    Paix has been solid on debut. Pride are running big guys at him like McDonald and Hola but he is putting his body in front. Lead the chase a few times and got down there, got into dummy half.

    Clifford has been good again- seems to have bulked up a bit but kicking game and anticipation is still first class.

    Hola has good skills, one handed pick up and ran 60m in the wet. Gela Mosby looks dangerous when he comes infield. McDonald close to the Pride's best.

    Dolphins look a bit tired.

    Been watching it, Dolphins look a so much weaker than last year. Losing Cullen, Opacic, Anderson, Taueli, Pearson, Slyney along with no Staggs or Turpin is hurting them.

    Clifford has been quality as usual. Cant believe they will go with Martin over him.

    Didn’t he get his jaw shattered a couple of years ago? Some guys are just unlucky.

    Yep in his 12 months at the Broncos he broke it twice.

    Carlins break was horrific a few years ago. Here is the MRI.

    Nene McDonald 240m.

    Good round one effort.

    Does that mean he isn’t in the Cow’s 17?? If so, that’s nuts, he is basically their one quality back other than Morgan.

    He is being punished, he was late to training.

    I think he may well play. He has had no trial games so they were probably just giving him some game time and putting him in his place.

    Bullemor- picks up a pass at his feet- runs 40m sets up a try. Scores himself on half time.

    Great work by a big man.

    The jets were a rabble today. A lot of hype about them in the pre season however they got shown up big time by the black hawks.
    Also the whole Cleeland love affair and talk of NRL has to be a stitch up. He is a handy cup player at best.
    Blackhawks just had too much class. It was all Jets for 20 minutes, but they couldn't crack Townsville's defence and they allowed their frustration to get the better of them.

    Once the Blackhawks found their rhythm they were able to put two quick tries on and rarely looked in trouble from that point.

    There was a brief moment in the second half where it appeared the Jets were mounting a comeback. Ash and Barba combined for a wonderful play where Ash dropped off the tackle and in a split second Barba was able to strip the ball. Moseley out of dummy half with only one marker would spell danger at any level.

    Then Barba missed a gettable kick and it seemed downhill from there. Pandia had a questionable call go against him right as the Jets were in good field position. Then Barba took a kick dead when it had just passed the plane. Then the nail in the coffin was when Burns made a break, looked to link up with Marmin only to throw a bad pass behind him. Townsville were able to get the ball exactly where Burns would have been defending a couple of plays later and it was effectively game over.

    The Purcell error which resulted in Hudson's double was when it well and truly became game.

    I was impressed with the Blackhawks across the park. Started slow, but once Lousi came onto the field they started to find a roll on through the middle and it was his pass to Gilbert that changed the complexion of the game. Hudson the Hasting Deerings Man of the Match which was pretty difficult to argue with. Defensively he shut a lot of decent attacking raids down and the double in the opening game of the season is hard to ignore.

    Was pretty impressed with Neale and Shea for the Jets. I thought both played a big role in the Jets early ascendency and were let-down by their outside men. If I had to pick, I'd give Shea the biccies, he just kept pumping through out the game.

    Townsville look like the real deal and will be there come September. For the Jets, I don't think it was the end of the world. For mine, they were a bit guilty at times of treating the game like a training drill and lost focus on what they wanted to do in each set. When things stopped working for them, they started forcing plays and it hurt them. I can see them finding their groove and getting better use out of Cleeland. Josh didn't have the best game, but there were still some good touches in his performance and once he finds his voice in the side, I believe he'll make his mark.

    There was only one NRL contracted player involved in the game, and in his debut, Tom Gilbert was sensational. A tough bullocking performance in the middle, ran a good line off of Lousi to open the scoring and didn't shirk any responsibility. If he can maintain this level of performance, it won't be long before he makes his way into the Cowboys 17.
