    INCENSED Brisbane Broncos chief executive Bruno Cullen last night launched a stinging multi-pronged attack on the NRL, highlighted by the club's shock first Monday night game.

    Cullen is furious at the game's governing body for scheduling Brisbane's first Monday match, the round-10 game against Manly, Sea Eagles just two days before the year's State of Origin opener.

    The NRL also ignored the premiers' request to play their post-Origin "back-up" fixture on the subsequent Friday night. They could have tried to do the worst possible thing for us, and they couldn't have done any better," Cullen fired. "It makes it hard, it makes it very, very hard.

    "They always talk about wanting to build crowds, build attendance figures, then they do this.

    "We welcome Monday night football and the chance to make it a success but you want a quality game. When they looked at the draw, that's the one game they should have trodden away from.

    "It's all new territory and we said we'd have a go, but that's what they've given us to go with. They haven't given us a cannon - they've given us a popgun.

    "No disrespect to the players that night, but it's almost a reserve grade clash. After all the rhetoric about wanting to get crowds, we're very, very disappointed."

    Hopefully they have stack of players in but if we keep winning games we will have a few as well - it maybe the devil in disguise

    there could well be close to a full side missing between the 2.

    Stewy, bell, lyon, orford, kite, king and watmough may be a chance from us at this stage and the broncos are good for about 6 - 8 as well

    We are going to hear about this for the rest of the year up here.

    When the Broncos miss a top 8 spot it won't be because they lost 3 games to start the season. It'll be "You gave us manly on a monday before the origin. What a pack of knobs.

    Saw in the paper how they had arranged for Eddie Jones to address the team at trainning, even Bennett joked "I thought we'd get some tips about losing some more games, his tip was just keep doing what you're doing."

    They were an excellent feeder club for Manly in the 70s.

    Whingeing tossers. With us on top of the table again I expect they'll run off and start a new competition because they realise they can't beat us to win this one.

    Is that at Suncorp or Brookie?

    fair point Kiwi, they are probably dissappointed they didn't get an extra bye so they don't have to play at origin time
