we will go over there full of confidence...Warriors as inconsistent as they come.....looking forward to a good game but seriously this has to be a W for the Broncs after that performance tonight..???
- Merged

also, I think I've come to terms with dropping Carrigan for Seggy.....

Even if we don't come away with the W, seeing that effort is more important imo.

Definitely a game we should win on form lines but we all know about that shit. We match them in the forwards, middle no doubt. This game will come down to the defensive damage done by the packs. If we get through the first half with the least forward battle damage we should win.

We have a better balance across the park with only one exceptional athlete to contend with. The others are merely good! Another game to get a real gauge on the team. Easy to get up against the benchmark, this road trip will tell the truth. Which Broncos team turns up ?

This is the type of win that gives a young team belief, if they win their next game without the home crowd advantage, just them as team mates backing each other it’s game on! The potential in this team with confidence is extremely encouraging.

Shut down the warriors back 3. They are so good at starting off their sets.

RTS is crazy good at the moment so if we keep him quiet then we should win this one. I’m worried that we will be emotionally drained after tonight and it will be hard to back up that performance. I’d make one change. Carrigan in for Flegler to give him a rest. Depending on how Roberts is attitude wise I’d consider bringing him back in but only if he does show some type of effort and desire to play.

Nikorima was breaking ankles at Penrith earlier.
Broke the line a couple of times and just bamboozled the defence for a sizzling solo try under the posts.

Him and the Warriors will be up for this one, but if our lads show an once of what we produced tonight we'll account for them easy.

Get TPJ and Haas running at Nikorima all night. Take him right out of the game and Green won't have enough on his own to get the Warriors home
... and Lodge and Flegler and Carrigan and Fifita and Offa and Glenn ... and also, build on what we did so effectively last night : Haas and TPJ offloading at the line to break up the defensive line.

As someone else I think posted, if we are to be finals contenders, this for mine is a must win game to follow up last night's stunning performance. It will add so much to the team's self belief.

As for Roberts, nope. Shiba has earned his place.

I hope Niko goes well, I still feel like he's a Bronco at heart. Broncos need to win though.
I really like Niko, I hope he goes well, but we better not go soft on him like we have with Hunt in the past, avoiding targeting his weaknesses.

Last night felt like a turning point, unique energy. I think the group of blokes that played last night bought in and are excited and want to be a team. Very important game.

A lot of great Bronco sides have had their pants pulled down in NZ over the years. Considering this current lot haven't won a road game, it will be a tough task.
