2nd min TRY BRONCOS to Allan Langer. Langer puts up an unconventional bomb, Steve Renouf gathers it in and he passes to Langer for the four pointer. Terrible start for the Green Machine. Julian O'Neill converts from close to the posts.

Broncos 6-0

I used to love Renouf. The only Bronco that I could ever stand. Maybe Lockyer.

Lazarus knocks on in the ruck, unseen by ref. Expect a lot more of this with the one ref this season.

He tried to set a boy in a dolphin costume on fire with his lighter and when admonished by team mates dove off The cruise ship and swam ashore.

22nd min Noa Nadruku puts it down just metres from the line! Great run from Croker in the lead up, getting past the great Steele Retchless. It is still 6-0 in favour of the Broncos.

23rd min A young Darren Lockyer now on the field. The Raiders are really dominating at the moment, but they can't get over. A short grubber from Stuart is defused by the Broncos on the last on their own goal line.

26th min The Raiders had two men over, but Croker drops it. Not a great pass. A try was on if the pass had stuck.

27th min Penalty to the Raiders, high tackle from Alan Cann on Nadruku. It puts the Raiders on the attack close to half way. The set ends with a kick to the corner from Stuart, bounces backwards and finds the line.

30th min Langer makes a break, puts in a kick... Nadruku tries to shepherd it over the sideline without touching it, but he can't. Broncos scrum deep in the Raiders' own half.

33rd min What a set from the Raiders. Great run from Stuart, and it is finished with a kick from Laurie Daley which forces a line drop out on the Broncos.

Good set.
Ricky was deceptively quick.

34th min TRY RAIDERS to Steve Walters, from dummy half. Finds a hole from 1 metre out! Finally they're over! The Raiders have been by far the better team in the first half, but couldn't score. Now they are over. David Furner converts from close to the posts.

38th min Broncos attack off the back of a penalty, but fortunately O'Neill knocks on close to the try line. Still six all at Lang Park. And now Lazarus penalised, not square at the ruck.

This has more of an origin feel than actual origin from 1995. Rep players everywhere.

I'm pretty happy with that score at half time.

Big ask to travel to Suncorp. We've been a bit off our game.

43rd min TRY RAIDERS to Brad Clyde! What a run from Mullins to start it off and what a run from Clyde! He runs 50 metres to score! SENSATIONAL! Great pass from Laurie Daley to put Clyde into the hole! David Furner out wide... and it hits the right post and bounces over!

45th min Steve Walters runs out of space... and the ball goes over the sideline. Broncos scrum feed on half way. Now Walters gives away a penalty in front of the posts, second effort in a tackle...

48th min PENALTY GOAL BRONCOS to Julian O'Neill.
