THE PREDICTION

Brisbane Broncos has been in miserable form since the resumption of play and they have lost their last nine games in a row. The margin of defeat in some of those has been particularly heavy going down by a margin of 28 points or more in four of those games. They lost by 28 points in the match with the Eels earlier in the season and they could be on the receiving end of another heavy loss here too. The Eels defence is in good form and while they are not the most prolific scorers themselves, they should be able to keep the Broncos out and score enough to win this by 14 points or more.
