No Longer Easybeats

Article excerpt

I THOUGHT the Broncos were brave in their loss to the Cowboys in Townsville last weekend.They seemed to have turned around their defence in recent weeks and I think they would have taken more from that loss than the Cowboys got from the win.

The team they play here aren't mugs. I have been watching the Rabbitohs closely all season and they are a good side. They have good ball control and are well drilled defensively.

You can't go around them anymore, you have to keep chipping away and try to go through them. They seem to have got the rubbish out of their game when it comes to giving away penalties.

You have to beat the Rabbitohs nowadays, they don't beat themselves anymore.

Brisbane does have a good record against Souths, particularly in Queensland, so will probably be too good in this game, but I am tipping one of the games of the season. Broncos to win narrowly.

DRAGONS V TITANS

The Dragons unleashed the shackles in attack last week when they were staring down the barrel at 0-18 against the Bulldogs.

They started to play decent footy and looked a different side. If they take that sort of attitude into this game, they have a good chance to beat the Titans. If they go back to the basic boring style they had in the first 12 games, the Titans will beat them.

Another tough game to tip, the Dragons will be absolutely desperate and are at home on a Friday night Co maybe that will get them home. Dragons in another close game.

COWBOYS v RAIDERS

Hard to tip the Raiders in Townsville. It is another must-win game for the Cowboys and they get a chance to produce back-to-back wins after two losses. The Cowboys simply have to win home games and look to have too much class for the Raiders.

PANTHERS v EELS

This has the trademarks of another close game. There is no love lost between these two clubs and, with both having seasons to forget, there will be a lot of pride attached to the result.

The Panthers have reportedly had a crisis meeting during the week. …
