  1. Broncos should line up as

    Joe O, Oates, Kennedy, Paix

    Simple Game plan, tackle hard, roll off quick, cover your mates inside.
    Then run hard, quick play the balls attack right edge mid set with Staggs/TPJ on Foran, deep backline you the left, high kick to Coates either dump meany in corner or out jump him to score. When the cracks appear Croft/Luke can run.

  2. Good plan stiive. I like it. They might need to give TPJ a brain transplant though. Gees he’s a dumb player. Stong like OX smart like tractor that bloke.
