Newcastle Knights vs Brisbane Broncos Preview
Both of these sides ruined my tips last week and I am hoping that at least one of them can get us back on track on Thursday night.
The Broncos suffered a 59-0 loss in Round 4, but you wouldn’t have known it in the first half of their Round 5 clash with ‘Premiership hopefuls’ Manly.
They absolutely controlled the pill and skipped out to an 18-point lead that was garnished by the emergence of winger Xavier Coates.
Big call, but he looked like a young GI, he was that good in the air.
The Knights meanwhile suffered their first loss of the season, albeit as outsiders against the always dangerous Melbourne Storm.
They showed glimpses of their best but were comfortably accounted for and this does represent a danger game for them.
Even though they couldn’t hold on, it was a light years-better performance from the Broncos and I actually think they can go on with it.
