Brisbane Broncos Women – St George Women Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 01:05

In saying this I expect Brisbane to have too much fire power and running in their legs for St. George and in turn I expect Brisbane to come home strong and win. Despite their poor form of late I expect the Dragons to come firing and put in a much improved performance, knowing that a loss will end their season theyll leave nothing out on the field and go for broke.

Gareth Widdop holds the key to victory for the Red V, hes their captain and their best player so much will be riding on his shoulders. His team mates will also benefit from having him out on the field with them, knowing that the English play maker is capable of that big play at the crucial moment will help lift the team morale and belief.

David Fifita will start in the second row after Alex Glenn (calf) was ruled out on Saturday. Sam Tagataese and Gehamat Shibasaki were omitted an hour before kick-off. Andrew McCullough (concussion) returns at hooker, allowing Josh McGuire to revert to lock. Broncos: In a late change, Joe Ofahengaue will start at prop, with Matt Lodge dropping back to the bench.

Haas spent the first part of this season suspended but since hes been back in the team he is showing us that the hype is real. Martin Taupau has been his usual self so far with running over people, busting tackles and throwing offloads. By all reports he is up there with the fittest players at the club and Seibold even has the option of playing him for the full 80 minutes, which is incredible for a front rower. Hugely talented and possessing similar barnstorming skills as Taupau, perhaps the most impressive part of this young guy is his massive motor. He comes up this week against another beast in Payne Haas.

For the Broncos things have changed a lot since that first round defeat and their early season struggles, theyre now the form side of the competition riding on the back of their young and powerful forward pack. Their much maligned halves pairing of Anthony Milford and Kodi Nikorima have also caught fire and found form at the right time of the season.

Ladder[edit]

Instead, Milford and Nikorima need to back their forward pack, with players like Sam Thaiday, Matt Lodge and the youngster Tevita Pangai Junior to do the job, get it done up the middle and keep them on the attack. From there, its about winning the territory battle and controlling the game through a use of repeat sets and pressure.

In stark contrast to their opponents this week, St George-Illawarra are in a form slump and seem to be a shadow of the side that was tearing through their competition in the early parts of the season. But its a new competition starting this week so maybe the smell of finals football will help the Dragons find their fire once again. Despite beating Newcastle on the weekend the Dragons are still searching for that formula that had them running like a well oiled machine during the early rounds, their attack seems void of ideas and their forwards have lost their bite.

There are questions marks over both starting back rowers Tevita Pangai and Alex Glenn who both failed to train on Tuesday, both players are expected to play but Kontoni Staggs and Sam Tagatese are on standby. Brisbane have named hooker Andrew McCullough to start after missing last week as he recovered from the infamous Dylan Napa hit, all reports are he is right to go and has fully recovered.

George will need to weather the early onslaught from the Broncos crowd and forward pack otherwise they risk losing the game in the early stages, one feels the longer the Dragons can stay in the contest the better their chances are of winning. St. With a big crowd expected for Sam Thaidays last ever game at Suncorp Stadium the Broncos will be full of energy in the opening stages.

They are down on key troops but still stringing wins together and coming off a good home victory against the Bulldogs. Many of us (myself included) wrote Manly off for this season after seeing their roster, however they have are firmly in the top eight a third of the way through the season with five wins from eight with wins over heavyweights Souths and Canberra.

Many experts believe Brisbane are the form team in the competition and could be a serious premiership threat. After disappointing losses to the Bulldogs and Cowboys, Brisbane rebounded to beat competition favourites the Rabbitohs and Roosters before hammering Manly in their final game. The Broncos are in irresistible form going into the finals with super coach Wayne Bennetts future uncertain. The seven time premiership winner has been able to use all the negative press surrounding the club to galvanise the playing group.
