    The key to this game is winning possession. The Broncos in previous games have dominated possession thanks to the refs. When they defeated us in round 26 they had 56% possession, and they only beat us by 8 when we were understrength. If the Possession is equal I reckon we will get them easy.

    Us by 12.

    Yes that is what they do so well, they starve you of possession. Locky is the man that controls the game for them which is why we beat them in our first club game when he was out. The thing is he is very good under pressure so running people at him is not that effective. That means this game will be won with our go forward and individual brilliance. We also have the advantage of playing in Sydney so they no longer have 50k fans getting them BS Penalties.

    I think we would have beat them in our last game even without Foran and Snake if we had a better defensive winger then Oldfield playing. I feel much more confident with Hoppa and Robbo on the wings and even more confident now that Foran and Snake are back in the side for this rematch. I think if Trex has a big game we will win by 13+, he is our x factor!

    We have to hold onto the ball at all costs, and not give away too many penalties. We have to keep them on the back foot and force them to play in their half.[hr]
