Brisbane has been on an extraordinary run in 2023, displaying near invincibility, and they aim to halt the ‘Wahs’ momentum this Saturday night. Boasting a formidable spine and an imposing forward pack, the Broncos appear overwhelmingly dominant on paper. Their roster is replete with winners across all levels of rugby league, and they intend to leverage this wealth of experience to gain an early edge against the formidable Warriors.
Meanwhile, the Warriors have taken both Australia and New Zealand by storm, with the ‘Up the Wahs’ movement sweeping through the NRL community like wildfire. Fueled by exceptional fan support, New Zealand has swiftly established itself as a genuine force in the current season. Guided by the veteran Shaun Johnson, the Warriors’ offensive prowess could pose significant challenges for Brisbane on Saturday night.
