Re: 2019 Rd 6 V Broncos: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Interesting the game plan to beat the Broncos is the same game plan the Sharks rammed down our throats for the past few yrs. 1. Work the middle. Tire out those forwards 2. Hang with them for 20-25mins until the bench comes on. 3. Frustrate their halves. Same goes this wk. Glenn and Gillett are good ...

Re: Matt's Match-ups 2019

Nice work Matt. Fifita isn't being used as an 80min player as he doesn't have 1st grade fitness yet. They should still be trying to get more out of him though. Seibold's bench use is generally pretty poor. Perhaps. But he wont get better riding the pine either. Seibold has 2 game changing forwards ...

Re: Josh Hodgson

I do like our defensive focused, tire the opposition, low risk rugby league to win games. The issue I have is that the NRL commission and referees have let this type of football be winning football for a decade.

Defense wins games. That has been the simple rule to our game since it began . Yep. And the best defenses definitely play finals footy, but ideally GF footy. Great point. D1 and D2 played in the GF last season whereas A1 missed the big dance and A2 didn't even make the 8! Defence is king. :thumbsup

The Broncos have struggled against teams that have defended well and gone through the middle. We should be winning this game in a similar way to how we've won the last few.

Maika Sivo is such a gun - is he on Cotric's wing?

If he is, will be such a good test for him. Battle of the young gun wingers. :woot:
No. I believe Fergie is playing right wing this yr. So its Cotric vs Fergie, hence the Origin article this week.
So Rapa vs Semi... I mean Sivo.
