Broncos Form & Team News


Peter Gentle takes charge of the Brisbane for the remainder of the season after Anthony Seibold walked away, but can he mastermind a dramatic turnaround of fortunes for the misfiring Broncos?

Brisbane have lost six in a row and 12 of the 13 matches since the season restarted. With the worst defence in NRL, one which has conceded at least 28 points in each of the last six matches, it could be another tough day at the office.

Suspended Issac Luke's place is taken by Cory Paix with Brodie Croft also brought back onto the bench. Corey Oates could play after six weeks out.

1. Darius Boyd 2. Richard Kennar 3. Kotoni Staggs 4. Jordan Kahu 5. Herbie Farnworth 6. Sean O’Sullivan 7. Tom Dearden 8. Joe Ofahengaue 9. Cory Paix 10. Rhys Kennedy 11. David Fifita 12. Ben Te’o 13. Patrick Carrigan 14. Brodie Croft 15. Jordan Riki 16. Ethan Bullemor 17. Jamil Hopoate 18. Jesse Arthars 19. Pride Petterson-Robati 20. Tyson Gamble 21. Corey Oates
