The Brisbane Broncos and the South Sydney Rabbitohs will kick off the 2015 season with a Thursday night blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium. 

There is so much hype surrounding the Broncos this season. The Godfather of the club, Wayne Bennett, is back at the helm in an attempt to return to the glory days. After performing well in the Auckland Nines and defeating the Wigan Warriors 14-12 in the World Club Series, the Broncos continue to firm in not only the premiership market , but also the Top 4 market . Bennett has named new recruits Anthony Milford and Adam Blair in the starting side, with Jordan Kahu at fullback for the injured Darius Boyd (Achilles).

The Bunnies kicked off 2015 the same way they finished 2014, in spectacular fashion. After winning the Auckland Nines at the start of the year, Souths won back the Charity Shield from the Dragons at the start of February, then defeated St Helens in England to capture the World Club Series Trophy two weeks ago. After these strong performances, it’s no wonder they are favourites to take out the 2015 Premiership . Coach Michael Maguire has named a relatively unchanged side from the team he took to England, with new recruits Glen Stewart and Tim Grant both featuring in a 20-man squad.

Brisbane fans would still be having nightmares of GI’s performances against them last year. In both games, Inglis destroyed the Broncos defence, scoring two of the best tries of the season to defeat Brisbane on both occasions. Given his track record against the Broncs, TattsBet customers are sure to favour GI in the First Try Scorer market .
