I am not sure if there were any injuries or possible suspensions but I'd be going:

1. Isaako
2. Oates
3. Farnworth
4. Arthars
5. Coates
6. Dearden
7. Croft
8. Haas
9. Turpin
10. Lodge
11. Glenn
12. Pangai Jr
13. Asiata

14. Paix
15. Kennedy
16. Carrigan
17. Bullemor

Flegler needs some time in Q Cup, there is a heck of a player in there but he needs to cut out the stupidity before he gets back in.

Flegler is the only one who deserved to be dropped after that. Farnworth should slot back in and I guess Mead unlucky to drop out. Isaako annoyed the piss out of me being his usual rocks and diamonds but a stern talking to about chasing glory will probably suffice.

Not sure how I feel about lock. Asiata probably the move.

I'd be dropping Kennar before Mead

It's a good headache having Oates back ready. I want him, warts and all. Be nice to welcome Staggs back but I'd doubt we'd get much out of him until he's had 18 months post op. We have precious little backup in the halves though so any revival, to a large degree depends on Dearden and Croft staying fit.

Kennar's 5 missed tackles tells a story. Carrigan wasn't great either. Seems a bit lost out there but a few of you reckon he's strictly a front rower so you might be right. Mead was okay tonight. Lot of guys scrambling for each other and we need more of that.

Carrigan needs a proper rest, plain and simple. We've burned him out big time in the last 18 months and now most of our squad is back on deck I'd love to see him get a week off or even just a couple of weeks playing very limited minutes.

It'd be very out of character for him but perhaps we could arrange for him to also abuse a Police Officer or fall asleep in his car after a few drinks so that way he's forced to have a couple of weeks off.

Hard to see us winning this one. Parramatta tend to get plenty of help against us and also at Bankwest so you can imagine that form line continuing.

Also, the Penrith performance now ironically makes things harder for us because there is very little chance we'll be able to ambush anyone again for a while like we were able to last night.

I don't think last night was an ambush. I am sure Penrith underestimated the Broncos to some extent, but Penrith, being the front runners and arguably the best team in the NRL right now, should have handily beaten us, but they didn't.
If we play like we did last night with any consistency , i don't see anyone bar a handful of teams beating us, those teams being Storm, Panthers and maybe the Rabbitoh's and the Eels.

After last nights performance, i think we will prove to be a real handful to anyone we come up against, and after this horror run of top 4 sides, we have a handful of cans we should easily beat if we play like last night.
For the first time in ages im optimistic about this Broncos side, and something Joey said after the game last night was, if Cleary was wearing a Broncos jersey, we win that game. That was the sole difference between the best side in the comp and last years wooden spooners.

Super impressed.

Our 43 missed tackles looks atrocious - until you see that Penrith missed 50.

Try a year and in the roosters setup not the spooners , let's see walker over an extended time instead of making calls after 2 games.
