    This will be a good one...Dragons will have to contain Folau to win this IMO and their defence is going to have to be on the money. Sailor needs to turn up an lead from the front.

    The Dragons have them in the forwards and Soward will have to hit gaps to give the Dragons a chance.

    Hopefully this game we have more space,as the Eels really didnt give us much and defended well.

    Winner meets the Storm on the Friday night GF Qualifier.

    The thought of Darren Lockyer kicking Wayne Bennett out of the '09 finals campaign with a last minute play is mouthwatering :crazy:

    Broncos by 1. Will be a joy to send Wayne, Darius, Sailor et al. out of the race.

    (that's with the heart and definitely not the head. Could go either way but I think it's more likely that the Dragons will narrowly get up here)

    will wallace be there or not, it wont matter :)

    the broncos get tired quickly in defence, brisbane is like another home ground for the dragons, i think this is a better time for the dragons to play the broncos,then it would if the dragons had the week off ,

    dragons to win

    dont know about that , jury still out on the storms form, manly didnt really test them and made 5 line breaks despite playing that poorly



    and the eels could only make 4 line breaks against the dragons , and they played far better then manly did agaisnt the storm

    Public Enemy said it best when they described the Storm.

    Don't Believe The Hype.

    Manly made them look like a million bucks off the back of silly mistakes and poor defence.

    As for this game, it's game on! Mind you with the Dragons, it's always game on for us Broncos fans, even if they fielded a bunch of reserve graders, it's game on and do you want to know why? Because their club is built on class and resiliance and with Bennett at the helm, the stage is set for an absolute classic of Semi Final proportions.

    I believe in the boys and I believe that this game will be the game of the season.

    I'm seriously thinking about going to this game (if it doesn'ts sell out before I get tickets).

    Both coaches are going to be into the boys, I'm sure losing is NOT an option for Bennett who will have ripped the players a new one.

    It should be sold out by the end of today.
    I have no confidence in beating the Dragons in Brisbane

    Heart = Brisbane 24-16
    Head = Dragons 26-12

    What, and the jury isn't out on your team's form? You've only won 1 out of your last 5 matches

    We lack a game breaker in the big games. The Broncos have them a'plenty. The Broncs should win this one.

    Either way, the team that does win will find it very difficult the week after in Melbourne.

    This will be an awesome game. Hodges was unbelievable against the Titans. Wallace and Lockyer both played outstanding too.

    The Dragons just looked flat yesterday and off the mark. Sadly I think they've done their dash for 2009.

    I think the Dragons will produce another special performance at Suncorp. Just like in Round 4 when the Broncos were on fire, they shut them down and they can do it again, because they'll be too determined not to let themselves be knocked out in straight sets. They don't want to be the first minor premiers to be knocked out before week 3, how bad would that be?
