Brisbane is looking to make it three wins on the trot when they face New Zealand on Sunday (AEST). 


Last Friday, the Broncos faithful saw a team they hadn’t seen for six years. Against the Cowboys at Suncorp Stadium, Wayne Bennett and his men put on a clinic, destroying their northern rivals 44-22. Their passing play was second to none, their defence was top notch and their line speed could match it with the best. If last week was a sign of things to come, then the Broncos will surely challenge for the remiership come finals time. It has been said before, but Corey Parker is like a fine wine; he only gets better with age. Last week, he finished with 161 metres, six tackle breaks, three offloads and 16 points.

Te Warriors were lucky to walk away with a victory against the Eels last Saturday. They jumped out of the blocks at the start of the match, posting 20 unanswered points in as many minutes. But like they seem to do time and time again, they took their foot off the pedal and almost let a 29-16 victory slip through their fingers. Dally M contender Shaun Johnson continues to mature as a half. His 345 kicking metres helped the Warriors stay on the front foot and his combination with pivot Chad Townsend, who posted three try assists and three tackle breaks, has punters believing amaiden Premiership isn't far away. Tuimoala Lolohea shifts to fullback for the injured Sam Tomkins (knee), with Matt Allwood set to make his debut for the Warriors. 

In their two encounters last season, both teams shared a win apiece. Given that the Warriors' victory was in New Zealand, and the fact the Broncos haven’t won there since 2009, it’s no wonder TattsBet customers continue to favour the home side at the line .
