I think the Tallis hate is a bit over the top around here to be honest. I don't know how you can hate a guy who played the way he did for the Broncos and QLD.

The tackle was a soft bloody move from Blair. That being said its BS that the media are bashing him up for hitting him in the back as the pass. 99% of the hits Blair pulls off are nowhere near late in real time. Thats the price a playmaker pays for taking the ball to the line. Games been going soft for a while in this regard. Fair enough Tallis calls him out on the chicken-wing - although should have limited it to that.

Anyone whose getting all precious over the article in the paper or Gordie being a Titans ambassador needs a bit of a reality check. Those 10 reasons weren't written by Gordie and the local paper having a bit a laugh... And can someone actually point out to me what in that article is so outrageous? The fact a club ambassador tells fans they should fire up behind their team and build some rivalry and atmosphere at the game? Good on him. I'd much rather we had a Cowboys like rivalry with the Titans well done Gordon for doing what he can for the only club in Queensland thats struggling!

Normally I wouldn't have the time of day for any turncoat, but it's his job... I don't have the shits at Bennet for rooting for Newcastle while he was on their payroll.
Did Bennett bag out the Broncos at every opportunity though? No.

SEA EAGLES V BRONCOS

Sat 14 May 2016 7:55PM, Suncorp Stadium

Sea Eagles: Trent Barrett’s men are set to be boosted by the inclusions of five key players — Dylan Walker (hip/ribs), Apisai Koroisau (ribs), Jake Trbojevic (ruled out for City), Brett Stewart (hamstring) and Jamie Buhrer (broken thumb). The likes ofBrayden Wiliame, Matthew Wright and Pita Godinet are on the chopping block.

Broncos: Hooker Andrew McCullogh (hamstring) made a shock appearance at training on Monday and is eyeing a return way ahead of schedule, although he’s more likely to return next week. Travis Waddell would make way. Brisbane have two spots to fill in the forwards. Adam Blair (suspension) is again out, while Alex Glenn (calf) will miss another week after being ruled out for the Kiwis. Sam Thaidayis expected to play on the edge in place of Glenn. Jarrod Wallace, Joe Ofahengaueor Herman Ese’ese could find themselves in the starting side for Blair. James Roberts (hip) and Anthony Milford (rested) will be named after sitting out last week.

THE NRMA Insurance Broncos will take the early guilty plea on Adam Blair’s dangerous contact charge today.

Blair was cited out of last Friday’s Test against Australia in a tackle involving teammate Sam Thaiday.

Despite Thaiday being unharmed from the tackle, the Broncos are not willing to risk a two-week suspension for the valuable Blair.

The Kiwi prop will only miss one week with the early guilty plea, while an unsuccessful defence at the judiciary risked another week.

The decision ensures Blair will be available for the Broncos’ crunch match with the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville on May 20.

Coolio.

As 1910 said in one of the earlier threads, he's not going to come on and provide instant impact, he's not that type of player, I hope he gets ~60 minutes though, that's one of his main strengths, great motor.

What is with people's obsession with McGuire at hooker? Changing the whole team rotation to move a prop to hooker is mind baffling.

McGuire played hooker for Samoa at the last world cup and was pretty darn good. Was dangerous out of dummy half and gave grwat fast service.

Edit: I'm happy to give Waddell another shot. It will be good to see Jai get a run....assuming he'll come on for Sam at the 50-60 minute mark?

Sam will probably come off at the 25-30 minute mark.

He has been dubbed a Corey Parker clone and the suspension of Adam Blair and injury to Alex Glenn has opened the door for highly-touted Broncos lock forward Jai Arrow to make his NRL debut off the bench in Saturday night's clash with the Sea Eagles at Suncorp Stadium.

A Queensland Residents representative in last weekend's Representative Round, 20-year-old Arrow was a member of the Junior Kangaroos this time last year and was named in the Holden Cup Team of the Year.

Arrow cleaned up all the major awards for the under-20s team at the Broncos' presentation night last year and has impressed many with his performances for Norths Devils in the Intrust Super Cup this season.

Scott Sattler - a veteran of 203 top-flight games - has followed the Burleigh product's progress closely since he was 14 years of age and has no doubt he will acquit himself well in the second game of the blockbuster double-header at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

"He's an NRL player waiting to happen," said Sattler. "It's not so much the way that he plays – because that's outstanding – it's the way that he prepares and looks after himself.

"He prepares every day as if he is an NRL player now and could get a call-up tonight.

"If a game went for a week he'd still be going and his first hit-up and his first tackle would be exactly the same as his last."

Arrow's first taste of senior football with the Broncos came in a trial against Souths Logan in February when the majority of the NRL squad was in England for the World Club Series and he said then that he would use his time in the Intrust Super Cup to prove himself to coach Wayne Bennett.

"I'm trying to prove a point and prove to Wayne [Bennett] that I can take the next step," Arrow told NRL.com.

"I'm going to need to get used to playing with men because I haven't played any Queensland Cup. I'll need to work on my physicality and defensive skills with the step up to this higher level.

"I'm really enjoying having people I grew up watching around me. Having guys like Sam Thaiday and Parker around is pretty special and I'm really relishing it."

Great reward for Jai; not long overdue but getting close to overdue.

His leadership over the course of camp and then his performance after 8 games was awesome.

73 minutes
50 tackles
15 hit ups
165m
5 tackles breaks
2 offloads
2 missed tackles

Great work in a side that lost well. You guys won't be disappointed on Saturday.

Can't say I'm happy to see Waddell there. Did Bennett not watch him against the Sharks??????
