This week's club emblems feature a series of NRL-themed car air fresheners. For some reason they didn't make a Panthers one or maybe the Panthers one is sold out.

THURSDAY

Newcastle Knights vs Brisbane Broncos 7.50pm at McDonald Jones Stadium

Knights team: 1. Kalyn Ponga 2. Edrick Lee 20. Dane Gagai 4. Bradman Best 5. Dominic Young 6. Anthony Milford 7. Adam Clune 8. David Klemmer 9. Chris Randall 10. Daniel Saifiti 11. Tyson Frizell 12. Lachlan Fitzgibbon 13. Mitchell Barnett

14. Phoenix Crossland 15. Jacob Saifiti 16. Leo Thompson 17. Mathew Croker 19. Simi Sasagi 21. Jake Clifford

Players cut: 3. Enari Tuala 18. Tex Hoy 22. Sauaso Sue 23. Pasami Saulo 24. Brodie Jones

Late Mail: Dane Gagai will return from a cheekbone injury in the centres which pushes Enari Tuala out. Anthony Milford has been named at five-eighth for his NRL return against his former club the Broncos. It is a tough call on Tex Hoy, who impressed at five-eighth and could squeeze onto the bench at the expense of Phoenix Crossland. Jake Clifford has been named in the reserves and could be a late swap with Adam Clune at halfback. Tyson Frizell is a big in for the Knights with Mitch Barnett shifting to lock and Leo Thompson to the bench.

 

Broncos team: 1. Te Maire Martin 2. Corey Oates 3. Kotoni Staggs 4. Herbie Farnworth 5. Selwyn Cobbo 6. Tyson Gamble 21. Ezra Mam 8. Corey Jensen 9. Billy Walters 10. Payne Haas 11. Kurt Capewell 12. Jordan Riki 13. Patrick Carrigan 14. Cory Paix 15. Kobe Hetherington 16. Thomas Flegler 17. Keenan Palasia 20. Rhys Kennedy 22. Jordan Pereira

 

Players cut: 18. Brenko Lee 19. TC Robati  23. Ryan James 24. David Mead

Late Mail: Broncos skipper Adam Reynolds has been ruled out after battling a groin injury that saw him on restricted duties at the captain’s run. He will be replaced by Ezra Mam, who will make his NRL debut. Fullback Te Maire Martin is expected to overcome a hip flexor injury to take his place in the side. Payne Haas (shoulder) and Kurt Capewell (neck) are managing injuries, but with a long turnaround are expected to play.

Ezra Mam joins the Broncos in 2022 after a strong debut year for Affiliate Souths Logan Magpies, scoring 13 tries, 8 try assists and 7 goals in just 11 games. He comes fresh from winning the 2021 Intrust Super Cup Rookie of the Year Award, and the Souths Logan Magpies Pat Phelan Memorial Club Player of the Year. Mam has been in the Broncos’ pathways program since he was 13, and has earned his spot in next year’s 30-man squad.

Impressive first half from ex Huddersfied winger Dom Young with some strong runs. He’s a big lad who’s difficult to stop when in full flight.

Broncos looking good but wasting chances. Making breaks.…… hang on,

this time a break from their own half and the pass to Cobbo just reeled in by the youngster who escapes a defenders’ tackle and goes over for a super try.

Broncos are good to watch when playing this kind of footy.

Broncos run over the Knights late on after a good tussle for much of that . A couple of contentious calls . Gagai disallowed what seemed a blatant try , I agree with Mick Ennis about looking for reasons to scratch out tries . And Cobbo given a try after what surely has been called obstruction all season . The Knights deflated after that . Positive that Milford was in and showed up well , which is good considering they have some of the worst halves ever in the NRL

Big win for the Broncos, when I heard that Adam Reynolds was out I thought "F*** my tips gone south of the border" but winning a game like this without your gun player is huge and a sign of progress. Broncos not a Top 4 side but Top 8 this year.

The Knights have a papier mache defence and that down to the coaching.

As for the Bunker official that denjied the Knights a first half try which would have put them 10-6 up. All I can say is Queenslandah !

I’d toyed with changing my tip to Knights in the ESPNFOOTYTIPS  league I’m in, run by R L Winger, when I heard Reynolds was out and Knights had some players back from injury plus Milford.

In the end I didn’t partly because I’d done similar in the past and mucked up. I’m glad I stuck with Broncos.

FRIDAY

Wests Tigers vs Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

6pm at Leichhardt Oval

Tigers team: 1. Starford To’a 2. Junior Tupou 3. Asu Kepaoa 4. Tyrone Peachey 5. Ken Maumalo 6. Jock Madden 7. Jackson Hastings 8. James Tamou 9. Jacob Liddle 10. Zane Musgrove 11. Luke Garner 12. Luciano Leilua 13. Joe Ofahengaue

14. Kelma Tuilagi 15. Alex Twal 16. Fa’amanu Brown 17. Stefano Utoikamanu 18. Alex Seyfarth 21. Brent Naden

Players cut: 19. Oliver Gildart 20. Thomas Mikaele 22. Junior Pauga 23. Tukimihia Simpkins 24. Fonua Pole

Late Mail: Former Bulldogs player Brent Naden will complete a whirlwind mid-season move to the Tigers with a debut in the centres after being a shock name in the reserves. It will see Tyrone Peachey shift to the bench. Jock Madden comes in at five-eighth for the injured Luke Brooks. Asu Kepaoa returns from (COVID protocols) at centre with Luke Garner shifting to the forwards and Kelma Tuilagi to the bench. Jacob Liddle comes in at hooker for the injured Jake Simpkin (concussion). Fa’amanu Brown is set to make his club debut from the bench in his first NRL match since 2019 but Naden’s inclusion could see him drop out. Zane Musgrove has been named at prop despite a pec injury, while Oliver Gildart (calf) and Thomas Mikaele (head knock) are a chance to move into the 17.

 

Bulldogs team: 1. Matt Dufty 2. Jayden Okunbor 3. Aaron Schoupp 4. Jake Averillo 19. Jacob Kiraz 6. Matt Burton 7. Kyle Flanagan 8. Luke Thompson 9. Jeremy Marshall-King 10. Paul Vaughan 12. Tevita Pangai Junior 13. Josh Jackson

16. Max King 15. Joe Stimson 17. Chris Patolo 20. Zach Dockar-Clay 23. Raymond Faitala-Mariner 26. Declan Casey 27. Billy Tsikrikas

Players cut: 5. Josh Addo-Carr 11. Jackson Topine 14. Bailey Biondi-Odo 21. Brandon Wakeham 22. Tuipulotu Katoa 24. Paul Alamoti 25. Ava Seumanufagai

Late Mail: The Bulldogs will be without Josh Addo-Carr after interim coach Mick Potter confirmed he is out with the flu. Matt Burton and Luke Thompson were also in doubt but trained on Thursday and at this stage will be fine to play. Young gun Jacob Kiraz comes onto the wing for Addo-Carr. Jackson Topine drops out with Josh Jackson shifting to the second row and Max King coming in at lock. Bailey Biondi-Odo drops off the bench with Raymond Faitala-Mariner and Zach Dockar-Clay coming onto the pine.

5min: try to Luke Garner. In normal time it looked like he dropped it but in slo-mo it looked fine.

Hastings kick goes near the field somewhere.

Wests 4 - 0

Starford To'a try, converted by Madden - 10:0. Nice assist from Hastings.
