Game Preview:
The Broncos are sitting 2 points out of the top 4 while the Bulldogs sit 2 points above last place. So both clubs have some high stakes in this match. 

The forward packs will both need to work hard to allow their backs to get room to move and convert any opportunities that are presented to them. 

Key Match Up: Josh Jackson v Tevita Pangai Junior
The backrowers will have a tough match up against each other. Pangai Junior will no doubt be tasked with the mission to unsettle the Bulldogs skipper who is having a decent season despite his team sitting near the bottom of the table. 

Pangai Junior himself is having a break out year showing us that he can run hard and tackle just as hard and it’s those skills that will have Josh Jackson’s hands full this week. 

On he other hand Jackson’s sound defensive style will also give Tevita Pangai Junior some headaches should he not be able to get into an attacking groove early on. 

Nath’s Prediction: Broncos by 12
The Bulldogs got the win last week against the Tigers but I can’t see them getting over the Broncos this week.
