Broncos supporters are very confident looking at their forum, not as bad as the roosters in round 1. A few of them are afraid to get in the grind but most seem to think they will win by a big margin.

Apparently our wins were mostly flukes and getting the 50/50 calls in our favor. :roll
Oh yes because we got so many of those 50/50 calls against the Storm the other night!.....idiots :brick:

Team cannot change after that performance.
Best performance in a very long time.

I didnt get to see the second half of the Storm game, other than the highlights package. How did Godinet go compared with MM? Did MM get much time? Also Aloiai - how did he go?
Only asking because any changes at all would have to be around Hooker in my view, and carrying the second DH on the bench. I would like to see us with as strong a bench as possible as I think the Broncs will come out all guns blazing after studying our last 2 games. The weaknesses I notice are still around the ruck and our slowness or awareness in that area.

It's still rubbish.

Last year, Gamble and Brodie Croft were playing against each other in the Queensland Cup. One for Redcliffe and the other for Easts. Please tell me how Croft performed on the weekend? Not to good I must say and golden boy Munster did not do too well either. Ask Bellamy if he will drop Croft and Munster because has some deficiencies. There are a number of other young players in the comp who are developing as NRL players. Gamble has already been noticed in the ISC after only two games - by Hodgo, Ivan, Gallen, Joel Caine's mention of the Sunday Footy Show , and Fittler's response on the Show as well will mean others will take note. Yes, Gamble is willing to wait, and he is pretty loyal, but the real question is whether other clubs will let him and the Tigers wait. I suggest the answer might be 'no'. Anyway the question of when he is ready will be made by Ivan and his coaching staff and not by commetns on this forum. But lets not forget family and friends live in Brisbane and so far the Nikorima is not performing too well. Somehow I have a feeling that he will not be around for the duration of his contract.

After the Cup match on Saturday I searched the other clubs and could not believe how many good players the Tigers have lost just over the last few years. I do hope that Ivan changes that stop the talent drain. And I do hope that Gamble stays on.
Benji is close to retirement at which point Gamble will be in the side.

I reckon 2020 will be Cleary and Gamble in the halves and Grub either released or coming off the bench.

If Taylor is out it changes our entire line up and our interchange

Show up with the same defensive intensity and go forward we will be a big chance again

Definitely would not change Thomson at the back - some of his positional play and awareness was excellent and I don't think Tui would have made those plays or been as safe. Just like Reynolds Vs Benji - I am fairly sure we would not have won those 2 games if Reynolds had played instead of Benji. Which begs the question - what does Ivan do when Reynolds is fit?

Will be interesting to see the game plan this week. We flooded the middle against the Roosters and dared them to score out wide against a sliding defence. We then rushed the Storm and intentionally gave away penalties to slow them down.

First time in years the team Is organised and following a game plan. The attack will come but the defence is outstanding. Amazing what can happen with Packer, Mats, ET dominating the middle defensively. Our past problems are showing up at the Dogs who are getting rolled in the middle and conceding plenty.

Taylor is a big loss for us, I presume Eisenhuth to 13 and Felise to the bench?

I'd move Rochow to 13 and start Aloiai. Robbie looks to have a high workrate similar to ET.

If Kev is out, I'd take a huge Gamble and play the new kid. He is talented enough to deliver a result!

Ta'ane would have to get first crack. Ivan isn't Sheens. Agree RE: Rochow though. Would pave the way for McQueen to make his club debut.

Lol. That defence is not a fluke, if we keep that up we'll win many more. And we overcame a whole bunch of stuff to win that Storm game - 18-8 penalty count against us, 1 man down for 10 mins and playing in Melbourne in front of a big Storm home crowd on a milestone game! I feel like it's possible to win anything after that one.

For the people who want Gamble in the side, who do we drop?
If we play him off the bench and carry a second no9, it leaves us having to have our forwards play big minutes. Maybe you would get away with it if Taylor filled in at 9, but with him in doubt it would be a massive risk.
His chance will come,injuries will strike, but at present I would hold off a little longer

Yep, Kevin looked a bit dusty. We’ll miss his energy and commitment. Elijah difficult to replace. Depends on Ivan’s game plan.
Need more props.
