Battle-weary Broncos prop Shane Webcke is confident the club's 11 Origin players will do the job in tonight's NRL match against the Roosters in Brisbane.
In all, 17 players are booked to back-up from Wednesday night's Origin, with the Roosters holding a mental edge as four of their six representatives played on the winning NSW side.
In changes for Brisbane Brett Seymour is tipped to replace injured five-eighth Ben Ikin while winger Scott Minto could be replaced by Craig Frawley.
Canberra could regain the premiership lead the same way Brisbane did last week when they enjoyed a bye. The Panthers, after recovering from a slow start to win eight straight, can also climb to equal top spot this weekend should they beat the Bulldogs and Brisbane lose.
