    Will be rather interested to see who Wayne goes with in the halves with Mullo.

    Will it be Hilder, Filipo, Boyd or NYC five-eighth Will Smith?

    Yep, this will be a huge factor imo

    Personally Id prefer Filipo be moved on to the bench and Hilder shifted to 5/8

    Parker out is a fair blow to Lockycastle, Knights a massive chance here

    Massive losses on both sides, Parker for Broncs, Gidley for Newcastle. So I'll go Broncs in a 4 point thriller.

    I think Gidley is less of a loss than Parker. Knights to continue improving and maybe pick up a close one.

    If there's one position we can cover it's backrow. Knights halves stocks are looking skinny although I'm unsure if Kidley is that big a loss.

    I expect a real grinding match with a couple of name Broncos players stepping up to take the win.

    Brisbane by 8.

    Eh? Apart from his kicking, he almost single handedly cost Brisbane the game last week with two or three terrible defensive reads that led directly to trys. Granted he has been one of the big stat earners for Brisbane in recent years in metres, tacklesand points through kicking, but his position is possibly one of the most "coverable" in the side.

    Broncos to bounce back and actually start to utilise one of the best packs in the comp.

    Yeah far point re. the backrow, most clubs would be desperate to have some of your third-string 2nd rowers in their starting line-ups.

    We need to think of the big issues here, e.g Fantasy NRL
