You can tell Dan Wallace has come out of the NYC comp. Hard to stop in attack but had has some shocking one on one misses in defence.

GOLD Coast Titans NYC have recorded their first win of the 2012 season by defeating Brisbane Broncos NYC 23-8 in a defensive orientated contest.
After trailing 16-0 at halftime, Brisbane started the stronger in the second half, making the most of a penalty conceded by the Titans.
From the ensuing set, the ball found Queensland under 20’s forward Caleb Timu, the big backrower managing to spin and turn his body in order to find the line.
Louis Frisby missed the relatively easy conversion to maintain the Titans 12-point buffer at 16-4 in the 46th minute.
With either team not looking likely to score, a field goal by Titans halfback Jamal Fogarty seemingly put the contest to bed with 10 minutes remaining.
However Brisbane were not about to give up and managed to hit back five minutes from fulltime when a Brandon Lee grubber kick found Broncos centre Soape Palau, reducing the deficit to nine points.
The Broncos tried hard to crack the Titans defence again but could not find a way through a determine Gold Coast outfit.
A try under the posts after the siren to Jackson Springer extended the Titans lead with the final score favouring the Gold Coast 23-8.
After a cagey start in the first half, the Titans opened the scoring after forcing Brisbane into back-to-back line dropouts.
The pressure applied by the Titans caused the Brisbane line to crack and winger Lausi'i Taliauli crossed in the corner. Jamal Fogarty landed the difficult sideline conversion to give the visitors a 6-0 lead after 11 minutes.
The Titans continued their strong start to the match in the 23rd minute. After exposing the Broncos left-edge defence 10 metres inside their own half, the Titans broke through Brisbane’s line and the ball ended up in the hands of Sam Gee – nephew of former Broncos great Andrew Gee – who scored the Titans second. Fogarty’s conversion hit the upright to keep the Broncos in the contest at 10-0.
Three minutes out from the break, the Titans scored their third try. Gold Coast halfback Jamal Fogarty found a sudden burst of speed 35 metres out from the line that tore the Broncos open down the middle.
Fullback Jahrome Hughes was on hand to lend support, receiving the ball and dashing the remaining 10 metres to place the ball under the black dot. Fogarty backed up his prior good work to convert and give Gold Coast a 16-0 halftime lead.
GOLD COAST TITANS NYC 23 (Lausi'i Taliauli, Sam Gee, Jahrome Hughes, Jackson Springer tries; Jamal Fogerty 3 goals, field goal) def. BRISBANE BRONCOS NYC 8 (Caleb Timu, Soape Palau tries) at Suncorp Stadium.
Referee: Michael Gordon.

Timu is the only reason to watch these games at the moment.

[h=1]Broncos NYC Face Tough Road Trip[/h] Trad McLean

THE Broncos' under 20s are heading into the lion's den this weekend when they travel to Auckland to take on the Warriors.
The young Warriors are in the hunt every year, and host an imposing record at Mount Smart Stadium.
But coach Kurt Richards is confident his team can bounce back from the disappointing loss to the Titans last weekend.
"It is going to be a tough game," he said.
"The Warriors are always hard at home - I think they have lost one game there in two years.
"And they had a good win over Melbourne last match.
"We just have to get in and compete.
"Last week was disappointing, but the Titans will beat a lot of teams if they play like that."
Mitchell Moore replaces the injured Billy Brittian (foot), while Richard Tuala comes in for Brett Coutts.

[h=1]Tough Day For NYC Broncos[/h] Matiu Workman, Sportal http://www.broncos.com.au/news-display/Tough-Day-For-NYC-Broncos/54579



Saturday 5 May 2012 6:01 PM

The Broncos suffered a 34-10 Toyota Cup loss to the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It was a textbook performance for the Warriors, who temporarily moved into first place with 13 points after the six-tries-to-two win.
For the Broncos - who remain in 13th position on six points - a key part of their defeat was a noticeable lack in intensity in the second quarter of the match - a 20-minute period where the hosts scored two quick tries.
It was a tough reminder of the gulf in class between the two-time NYC Premiership winners and a young team certainly developing for the next few years.
Mason Lino ended the match with 10 points after converting five tries and directing play well.
Louis Frisby converted one of two tries but the fact his sole two points came from the sideline will give the young five-eighth plenty of confidence.
It didn't take long for the Broncos to feel the heat from the two-time defending champions as hooker Siliva Havili took a Ligi Sao offload and ran through four defenders to score under the posts within four minutes.
Lino converted the try to give the hosts the perfect start.
From there, however, the Broncos gained some ascendency and were rewarded when a superb backline move saw winger Tristan Lumley dive over in the corner to reduce the deficit to two.
They maintained that momentum for lengthy periods but a fumble after a superb break from Daniel Alvaro saw a great opportunity missed for the visitors.
A knock on to Travis Peters just metres out from the tryline minutes later ensured they continued to trail their more fancied opponents.
Brisbane were left to rue their errors when Sao darted over from dummy half to stretch their lead to eight with minutes to play in the first half.
The Warriors ended the first period with another try. A horizontal run from the hosts found Adam Tuimavave-Gerrard before a poor back pass was picked up by Carlos Tuimavave to give the hosts an 18-4 halftime lead.
If the Auckland side's try in the opening half came from brute force, the opening four-pointer in the second period came on the back of some misfortune for the Broncos.
What seemed like an ordinary chip kick from Tuimavave was edged by a Brisbane foot, altering the bounce of the ball and sidestepping the diving Levi. It instead fell into the hands of Ngataua Hukatai, who ran through under the posts to give Lino his fourth converted goal of the evening.
The Broncos looked to respond instantly when a superb Mitchell Moore run saw the ball move on to Matthew Berwick before he dropped the ball to the delight of the building Mt Smart Stadium crowd.
There were plenty in the stands to cheer Likiliki's try - the Warriors' fifth of the afternoon - as the interchange forward darted over from dummyhalf to extend the hosts' lead to 24 to the delight of the 112kg interchange player.
Rhett Webster gave the visitors a consolation try that was down to Levi as much as it was to the left winger. An inside pass found the dynamic fullback who sprinted 20 metres before finding Kodi Nikorima. The ensuing numbers game ensured Webster was able to give them a brief smile.
That deficit was restored when Havili scored again when he darted from dummyhalf to give the hosts a 34-10 scoreline.
Warriors: 34
Tries: Havili 2, Sao, Tuimavave, Hukatai, Likiliki
Cons: Lino 4
Broncos: 10
Tries: Lumley, Webster
Con: Frisby
HT: 18-4.

Half time. In a defence orientated game Broncos lead 28-18 after being down 18-0 early.

That was a lot better, still Timu is still going well but defence was a lot better last night.

A lot better?

Says it all, the game was devoid of any quality and if we were playing any other side we would have lost.

Manly are just a rabble because they were forced to fund a NSW Cup side because Carr felt threatened by the QCup.

The NRMA Insurance Broncos have climbed up to outright 10th position after a comprehensive 30 – 10 win over the Storm on Friday night.
In danger of losing touch with the top eight the Broncos needed a win to keep within reach heading into the middle of the season.
The key for the Broncos was defence keeping their opposition to just 10 points, their opponent’s lowest since round three and slashed their missed tackle count to just 15.
The Broncos will still need to improve their error count (13) and completions (67%) to compete with the top sides but showed they can offer in attack.
Centres Matt Berwick (136 metres, 13 runs) and Soape Palau (53 metres, 6 runs) did plenty of damage out wide as Palau collected a double after winger Tristan Lumley (67 metres, 8 runs) opened the scoring.
Up front prop Daniel Alvaro (154 metres, 16 runs) led the charge with promoted hooker Mitchell Moore (14 metres, 2 runs) darting over the line on the final buzzer behind his strong forward pack.
The Broncos will now turn their focus to the Knights who currently sit in fourth despite being beaten by the Broncos in round 3.

The NRMA Insurance Broncos under 20’s have stumbled in their pursuit of a top eight place going down the Knights 48 – 16.
Already having toppled the Knights back in round 3, the Broncos started in positive fashion despite having to withdraw Cameron Cullen before the match.
The young Broncos completed their sets well in the opening stanza before Francis Molo (87 metres, 10 runs, 7 tackle breaks) barged over the line.
However, after taking the lead, possession swung the way of the visitors as they ran in three tries.
Captain Benn Malley (36 metres, 5 runs) topped the tackle count with a mammoth 44 tackles while Brandon Lee and Stephen Coombe were the next best with 34.
No stranger to the try line though, Caleb Timu (105 metres, 10 runs) showed his strength once again to get over while centre Matt Berwick (186 metres, 15 runs) managed a consolation try at the end.
The loss leaves the Broncos as the only team on 12 points in 10th position.
The next three highest teams above the Broncos are all on 15 points meaning the Broncos will need results to go their way to crack the top eight.
One of those three teams is the Roosters who the Broncos will face down in Sydney this Sunday.

so we are back to the old chestnut.
is it in the best interest and development of whitchurch, frei, etc to come back and play against their own age for the second half of the season?

The NRMA Insurance Broncos under 20’s have gone close to pulling off a comeback over the Roosters on Sunday eventually going down 28 – 18 in Sydney.
With four players called into the Queensland under 18’s side, Broncos coach Kurt Richards gave his side a late injection of experience calling in Aaron Whitchurch (112 metres, 11 runs), Mitchell Frei (120 metres, 16 runs) and Chris Binge (49 metres, 6 runs) all from Queensland Cup.
The added experience wasn’t enough though with the Broncos nearly doubling the home side’s missed tackles and managing only two line breaks.
Things looked brighter earlier in the match though with winger Tristan Lumley (172 metres, 16 runs) getting the first of his two before centre Matt Berwick (123 metres, 13 runs) crossed on the other edge shortly after.
The big boys had a fight on their hands up front losing the metres gained battle by 500 metres, despite good efforts by starters Stephen Coombe (97 metres, 13 runs) and Daniel Alvaro (105 metres, 12 runs).
The Broncos under 20’s will now prepare to face the Cowboys (14th) on Friday night in Townsville.

Aaron Whitchurch and Mitchell Frei played again last night.

No Frei, injury from last week's game stopped him playing. They did have Whitchurch and Binge again and still no wins. Is it a playing roster or coaching issue, you'd think they'd be able to get a win over the Cowboys!!! 
Nick22Bronco

Nick22Bronco

Big second half effort tonight. They turned a 26-0 half time deficit against Souths into a 34-32 win. 
Hancock02

Hancock02

They continue to allow these little 10-15 minute windows where they just let the other side run riot and then try and come back.

Oates was good and Timu was strong.

brett grienke was listed on the bench vs the dogs but had zero tackles and zero runs. does that mean he didn't get on?
if so, is that his debut? 
Nick22Bronco

Nick22Bronco

If you don't get on it's not counted as playing so he hasn't made his debut.
