At the halfway point of the competition, we’re going to take moment to run the rule over each team and rate their performance thus far.

The below gradings are based mainly on results vs expectation but other factors were considered. Please feel free to let us know if we got it right, or where we have it wrong.

Brisbane Broncos

The fact the Broncos currently sit in 8th spot perfectly sums up their season. They’ve been better than some teams but nowhere near as good as others. They probably deserve to be in the eight, but only just.

Their big name signing Jack Bird has hugely under delivered and looks to be struggling with injury yet again. Bennett’s chopping and changing of his halves combination has certainly hurt, although the signs are that Anthony Milford and Kodi Nikorima are starting to gel.

James Roberts has been an absolute superstar for the Broncos on his way to becoming an Origin regular. TPJ is a monster with a future to match.
