    Brisbane Broncos Form

    The Broncs are on a 3 game losing run and did not fare well coming off the bye following Origin 1.
    In their most recent game they were hampered by errors and penalties giving their opponent the opportunity to have 50 Tackles Inside 20m despite only having 46% Territory in the game.
    Allowing only 4 tries in almost 9 full sets of six peppering the line is an above average number for goal line defence which the Broncos can take with them as they try to break their losing streak.
