    Courier Mail reporting Manly V Brisbane Friday night in round 1, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Bronco's entry into the league.

    Great way to start the season!

    My understanding is that because of Thursday night games in the first 4 rounds, there will only be one Friday night game for those weeks. It's not like 9 would want to show an extra game!

    This obviously means the idea of Manly v Canberra in China a week or 2 before the rest of the comp kicks off is not gonna happen. I guess the game could still go ahead in a later round - hopefully followed by a bye.

    Any guesstimates when the draw will be released? From memory they are now required to announce days/times for the first 16 rounds?

    In my opinion there is **** all chance of Sao or Chee Cam starting in the first game of the season.

    Prove me wrong kids. Prove me wrong.

    I don't have any inside knowledge of this BUT as I also work (professionally) with the Bronco's I have just shot an e-mail to Paul White (their CEO) to confirm or deny.

    2012 - Warriors away - Win 26-20
    2011 - Storm away - Loss 6-18
    2010 - Tigers away - Loss 22-26
    2009 - Bulldogs away - Loss 12-34
    2008 - Sharks home - Loss 10-16
    2007 - Canberra home - Win 32-6
    2006 - Canberra home - Loss 14-27
    2005 - Warriors away - Win 26-20
    2004 - Cowboys away - Win 24-20
    2003 - Cowboys away - Loss 20-30

    3/10 have been home games.
    4/10 Round 1 we have won.
    1/3 home games we won.
    3/7 away games we won.

    So i guess we are usually pretty slow starters to the season.

    Be great if we can rain on their parade and give them a flogging like we should have done 25 years ago.
