Brisbane Broncos v North Queensland Cowboys

The Brisbane Broncos take on the North Queensland Cowboys in the first glamour match up of the 2018 NRL season and the great news not only for Rugby fans but sport fans in general is the that the game can be watch live online via our NRL streaming partners.

For those who are new to the NRL, watching a Broncos home match is like watching a play-off game every single week as the crowds are massive, the atmosphere is always red hot and the players give there all.

Over the past few seasons these 2 Queensland rivals have given us some of the best matches of the season, with many been won by a try or less with extra time needed to separate them on occasion.

When you mix in the fact that the home team go into this game under pressure after a heavy loss in round one with the fact that there will be 50,000 fans in the iconic Suncorp Stadium as well as all of the household international stars on show and we have all of the ingredients of a match of the season candidate and a match that will be well worth watching on Friday morning.


The Broncos lost 34-12 at St George in round in a poor performance whilst the Cowboys defeated the Cronulla Sharks at home in a strong showing.

Team News

Andrew McCullough starts at hooker after Sam Thaiday struggled in the role last week. Pangai jnr keeps his starting berth so Thaiday is benched. Su’a is suspended, with Tom Opacic joins the bench.

The Cowboys make no changes to their match day squad but Michael Morgan is named in reserve and could feature.


Matches between these 2 giants of the Australian game are always close affair and we expect this one to be every bit the same.

Both teams are full of internationals and/or State of Origin players across the park, with both teams having speedy backlines and big yet mobile packs.

With things looking so close, it often comes down to the half backs as they are the ones who have to control the game and in Johnathan Thurston, the Cowboys have not only the best half in the world but they have the half in the best form out of all of the players out their.

That is where we thin k the difference will be in this game so we are going to back the Cowboys to upset the huge crowd in Brisbane and pull off a win that will add more pressure won coach Bennett after week 1’s dismal display.
