Game ON. Broncos put boot to ball and Parramatta will have it first running right to left on your device's screen.

0 all

Very quick turnaround from fulltime in the first game. Parramatta are now dealing with life after 'Gutho'... it hasn't started well either with Bevan French moving to fullback and French's wing replacement Josh Hoffman out injured. Kirisome Auva'a comes into the starting side while David Gower makes way for Peni Terepo on the bench. Brisbane are as named on Monday with Darius Boyd returning at fullback after missing over a month of footy.
