The Brisbane Broncos (4-14, 10 points) let two competition points slip when losing 18-12 to the Panthers last week. 

Their inability to execute when it matters keeps them in the wooden spoon race. 

The North Queensland Cowboys (6-12, 14 points), on the other hand, will take a lot of confidence out of their 20-16 loss to the Storm.

Thomas Flegler is out with Keenan Palasia to start and TC Robati joining the Broncos bench. Danny Levi is also on the bench. Meanwhile, the Cowboys will start the same 13 with Ben Hampton taking Daejarn Asi’s spot on the bench.

Plenty will tell you the Broncos put in a good performance to push the Panthers close last week. In reality, they did everything they could to lose it and there aren’t many positives to take out of the 80 minutes overall. 

The same issues plagued the side. Most notably, an ineffective attack. It’s an area the Cowboys can dominate with what Scott Drinkwater and Reece Robson provide with the ball. With two strong centres and a pack that can roll through the middle, the Cowboys should have an advantage in the yardage game, too. Once the Broncos are on the back foot, they tend to stay there.

Verdict

These two clubs always produce a thrilling contest. While the current squads are nothing to write home about on paper, this game still might be.
