Just watching NRL 360, with an interview with James Graham at a function in Brisbane. He explained that it is a function for members which they do whenever they go and play away. They no doubt have fewer long road trips than the Raiders. But I'm perplexed as to why the Raiders hardly ever do the same thing on the road... particularly in Queensland, when they play there three times a year... we have a good fan base we could be cultivating... but we just don't do it. Then we're told we have to take one of our home games away to Wagga... so as to "build the brand". We have many missed opportunities every year, to grow the brand. You have to wonder how serious the club is about "growing the brand".

Brisbane Broncos kick off to start the Thursday Night Football clash at Lang Park against the St George Illawarra Dragons. Poor crowd.

6th min TRY DRAGONS to Cameron McInnes, he wrong foots Tevita Pangai Jnr and then he throws a big dummy and is off to the try line! Gareth Widdop converts from in front.

12th min TRY DRAGONS to Jordan Pereira. It is off the back of a penalty against Tevita Pangai Jnr for failing to stand before playing the ball. Pereira is just inside the touchline and just grounds the ball in the corner. No conversion from the sideline. Good work from Hunt to send the ball in the right direction.

Dragons 10-0

Broncos looking a bit rattled here. Dragons need a few strong sets.

They’re going to have to penalise TPJ for coming in hard and late as a third man, otherwise he’ll be putting more than just Toumalolo into surgery.

26th min Corey Oates goes over the try line, but Ravalawa knocks on, then Jack Bird knocks on clearly. WHAT? The Broncos clearly knock on, but the video referee has cleared it!

TRY BRONCOS to Oates. That is awful decision making from the bunker. A shocking call to overturn the referee on field. Isaako converts.

Looks like Norman and Widdop have switched.

Ravalawa is average, not too fussed at him going.

36th min TRY BRONCOS to James Roberts. Widdop kicks ahead in the red zone, Roberts takes it one handed, and he goes 90 metres to score, uncontested. The Broncos are level but have by no means been the better team so far in this match. Isaako converts to give the home team the lead.

For the second week in a row the Dragons are not using Sims properly. He was on the edge there with an easy overlap and they kick, and Roberts scores. There is no point having him in the side if he's used as a decoy runner or not at all.

47th min TRY DRAGONS to Mikaele Ravalawa! The Raiders junior scores his first NRL try, no doubt about it, in the corner. Well set up by Corey Norman. Dragons go back to the lead. Widdop converts from the sideline.
