ROOSTERS: Shaun Foley, Vince Mellars, Iosia Soliola, Ryan Cross,
Lelea Paea, Josh Lewis, Jamie Soward, Adrian Morley, Heath
L'Estrange, David Shillington, Anthony Tupou, Nigel Plum, Craig
Fitzgibbon (c). Interchange: John Doyle, Shane Shackleton, Mickey
Paea, Charles Tonga.
Despite this, the above team is a $1.80 favourite to beat the Warriors who're untouched by Origin.
* I hate the thought of my beloved Broncos becoming the first to fall to Souths this season, but the Rabbitohs look a big chance to break their duck against a virtual reserve grade side. That said, Brisbane will still boast a formidable forward pack with the likes of Shane Webcke, Dane Carlaw and Brad Thorn.
* The Wests Tigers must shape as a big chance to upset Manly at Brookvale on Friday night given they'll be unaffected by rep duties (?) while the Eagles miss Ben Kennedy, Brent Kite, Steve Menzies and Steve Bell (?).
Oh man Flamb you have hit the jackpot mate,thanks for early work now im pounding the shit out of the Warriors to the bank,no reciepts no bloody worries thanks to Flamy!!Also Tigers look very good aswell mate,the Rabbitohs are worth a shot if they can hold those 3 blokes up,havent seen the rest of the Broncos list but would be interesting!!!Jumping on Warriors early b4 they become favourites!!!
