THE TEAM NEWS
- It has been a remarkable start to life in the NRL for the latest expansion side to join the competition with the Dolphins making it three wins in succession.
- Wayne Bennett’s side were too good for Newcastle Knights last week and in their quest to remain unbeaten, their pack will be bolstered by the return of Jarrod Wallace but in-form back-rower Felise Kaufusi has copped a four-game ban.
Starting 13: Tabuai-Fidow, Isaako, Aitken, B. Lee, Niu, Katoa, O’Sullivan, J. Bromwich, Nikorima, K. Bromwich, Kaufusi, Lemuelu, Gilbert – Interchanges: Wallace, Nicholls, Stone, Teague – Reserves: Faamausili, Donoghoe, Collins, Milford, Jennings
Unavailable: Edrick Lee (Injured), Herman Ese’ese (Injured), Ray Stone (Injured), Jeremy Marshall-King (Suspended), Felise Kaufusi (Suspended)
- Brisbane Broncos were not quite at their best for some spells of their game with St. George Illawarra Dragons last week but turned it on late in the game and were able to run out convincing winners.
- The Broncos still managed to post 40 points in that win and there is plenty more to come from there which will worry opposition defences and they look to have a settled side with the same 17 named for this contest.
Starting 13: Walsh, Arthars, Staggs, Farnworth, Cobbo, Mam, Reynolds, Flegler, Walters, Haas, Capewell, Riki, Carrigan – Interchanges: Paix, Palasia, Jensen, Taupau – Reserves: Mariner, Piakura, Hetherington, Madden, Willison
Unavailable: Corey Oates (Injured)
Not many would have predicted that this Brisbane derby between the Dolphins and Brisbane Broncos would have featured two teams that boast 100% records through round 3. The pair have started the season superbly with the Dolphins getting the better of Newcastle Knights last week while the Broncos did what was required to see off St. George Illawarra Dragons. Both will fancy their chances in this one but the Broncos look to have more quality throughout their side and with this game being played at Suncorp, that should give them the edge here with the Dolphins set to suffer their first NRL defeat.
