The Broncos are not travelling well, by any standards let alone Wayne Bennett's.

Yep they're struggling at the moment but could easily snap back into gear any game now. Seen it time and again in the Bennett Bronco years.
Would want to be soon though.

I have done a generous predictor on them and they are probably safe in the eight but probably 7th or 8th. This is a hot comp. I have just checked again, the Warriors would be eighth on points differential at 30 points, and that is only dropping the Cowboys game, don't get your hopes up guys.

Brilliant interview with HG Nelson on the pre game on Fox right now.
Wonderful insights into his calls with Roy Slaven over the years.
If you've ever heard a call of theirs you'll know what I'm talking about. Legend
Fox and the NRL are doing a great job this year with the Retro Round.
In full effect!

Doggies - Dragons was a great game of Friday night rugby league.
Russell Packer was outstanding opposite an also outstanding Sam Kasiano.

Taane Milne looks like a good future prospect.
Seems to have an eye for a gap and seems to like a bit of ball playing.
Built like a back row/prop.
Defensively sound.
Needs to gadd some speed work or explosive conditioning to be more effective as a center.
Just a bit slow, the Morris brothers had to team up to contain and dominate him.
But he let them know he was there.

Be watching this young man, they said he played junior Kiwis with Rona and Martin?

It's really nice to see the cowboys celebrating women in league round by wearing a storm jersey.

How did Warriors miss out on Zane Musgrove, looks like he's got Bromwich potential in this bunnies game.

What do you reckon Bruce has Manu played his last game for the Kiwis? Jordan Rapana has to be our form winger.
On form he is a standout, if you didn't know Manu's magical history there would be no question about it. Didn't Stephen Kearney have him in the larger squad sometime? He is eligible for the Kangaroos as well.

Rapana would surely be our first choice winger? Excited to see what Kearney comes up with, there's a lot of young players that have really come along this year.

I wasn't aware, fortunately he's declared himself for us. I'm not sure about him being in the larger Kiwis squad but in this article Kearney shows he's definitely in his thinking.

Manu's been a long time Kiwi and scored some crucial tries for us over the years, it'd be tough on him but I can't see Rapana being left out.
