Preview

The second of the double-header sees the Broncos travel all the way to Suncorp Stadium to take on the Sea Eagles, who are the ‘home’ side in this contest.

The Broncos have now won four in a row after a turbulent start and are locked in a four-way battle for the second spot on the ladder. They’ll come into this game with plenty of confidence as they play in front of their raucous home fans.

The Sea Eagles, meanwhile, have won two on the trot and will look to extend that streak in their bid to climb into the top four. Dylan Walker and Akuila Uate are in blistering form with the latter producing a four-try effort in their last game.

This game has the potential to be an attacking showcase as both teams possess an array of talent all over he park.

James Roberts was named on an extended bench and could be a late inclusion as he recovers from an ankle injury while Manly enter the game with no fresh injury concerns.

The Broncos are reasonably short-priced favourites, however, don’t count out this Manly side chomping at the bit to claim a big scalp.

  1. What a disgrace , on par with doormatts dad not swallowing his load, refs are BS in this game , just BS

    • Mid-air tackle 1. (b) It is illegal to tackle an opposing player attempting to
      field a kick whilst the player is in mid-air. The catcher
      must have returned to the ground before being tackled.
      (See Section 15.).Applies only when a player on the
      non-kicking team catches the ball on the full.

      • Good to know, cheers.

        Interesting rule though, you would assume the danger would be the same in both scenarios – unless the rule is not related to player safety I guess.

        • You are right to assume the danger is the same and common sense would agree but sadly the NRL and common sense don’t work well together

      • If that is actually the case then that’s a try, but what the hell difference does it make whether it’s on the full or not if the issues are player safety??? And low and behold gets a major injury which will hurt manly big and also nsw

  2. Yes pass was forward, on the other hand 9 times out of ten the taufua knock on would see a scrum , yes every other time , but you see we have “interpretations” not rules in this game

      • now now no need to be a sore loser bazza, you lost to the better team tonight, the best team in the comp actually with the most NRL premierships, it’s just that simple.

  3. Pass was forward, but every other call went broncos way, even in first half, taufau bout to score off grinned, Boyd bats it into him and it’s called manly knock on… there first try was sims last pass to Milford forward clearly. Then tackle tom mid air and now he’ll be out for season. Then taufau knock on. Then raps his legs around ball so that is scrum as he retouched the ball. Broncos were never going to be aloud to loose that game on a big night there. Certainly wouldn’t be celebrating much as a broncos fan. On other hand manly never ran as hard or anything in second half and that not good enough. Think Barrett didn’t use bench well at all tonight and cost us..

    • I agree with all your points except the Sims pass, and Turbo tackle. Sims flicked out the back of his hand so impossible to go forward. Turbo, while it’s a silly rule it’s still the rule
