THE NRMA Insurance Brisbane Broncos NYC team slumped to their second consecutive loss after another poor defensive display gave St. George Illawarra NYC a 42-34 victory.
The two late tries added some respectability to the scoresheet, however defense will again be the issue for Broncos NYC coach Kurt Richards now that his men have conceded 96 points in the space of two games.
With scored level at 24-all at the break, it only took four minutes for the Dragons to hit the lead through centre Charly Runciman, the successful conversion stretched the visitors lead to six points.
When opposition fullback Evander Cummins broke through the Broncos line, Dragons interchange Blake Phillips was on hand to receive the ball from Cummins who went over to score in the 52nd minute. The conversion was slotted over by the Dragons to hand them a 36-24 lead.
Dragons prop Jack Stockwell burst through the Broncos line to put the result beyond doubt 13 minutes from time.
The Broncos scored two late consolation tries with winger Tristian Lumley and centre Corey Oates crossing the chalk, the latter completing his hat-trick inside the last minute.
The Dragons got off to a dream start with five minutes on the clock when a kick on the last resulted in confusion between fullback Daniel Levi and winger Rian Diffey. The loose ball was collected by Nathan Green who opened the scoring for the visitors.
Within a blink of the eye the Broncos hit back in the eighth minute through a kick of their own with centre Corey Oates the beneficiary of a spilt ball.
Cameron Cullen squared the ledger for the home team with the conversion.
The Broncos suffered another blow five minutes later when the Dragons scored through Blake Jones, Daniel Burke added the two points to give the visitors a 12-6 lead.
Brisbane hit back themselves in the 21st minute after Dragons fullback Evander Cummins dropped a Broncos bomb and from the resulting set Corey Oates grabbed his second, Louis Frisby took over the kicking duties to level the score at 12-all.
With handling errors dominating the first half it was no surprise that the fifth try was on the back of a mistake.
Evander Cummins made up for his previous error to give the Dragons the lead when he evaded the Broncos defense to plant the ball over the line. Daniel Burke converted to give St. George Illawarra a 18-12 lead in the 23rd minute.
When another knock-on by the Dragons gave the Broncos great field position, Daniel Levi made sure the visitors paid for their lack of ball control. The Broncos fullback slipped through the opposition defense to score and Louis Frisby converted to tie the scores yet again at 18-all after 31 minutes.
Brisbane then scored four minutes later to hit the lead when back-rower Josh Seage burst through some feeble Dragons defense, Frisby converted to give the Broncos a 24-18 advantage.
Right on the stroke of halftime the home team conceded a cheap play-the-ball penalty to give St. George Illawarra a chance to score before the break and they dually delivered with hooker Daniel Burke diving over under the posts. The dummy-half converted his try to level the score at 24-all at the break.
ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA NYC 42 (Nathan Green, Blake Jones, Evander Cummins, Daniel Burke, Charly Runciman, Blake Phillips, Jack Stockwell tries; Jack Stockwell 1, Daniel Burke 6 goals) defeated BRISBANE BRONCOS NYC 34 (Corey Oates 3, Daniel Levi, Josh Seage, Tristian Lumley tries; Cameron Cullen 1, Louis Frisby 4 goals) at Suncorp Stadium.

Ahoy, Broncos fans.

Quick question. Is one of your NYC players Caleb Timu, related to former RL and Union player, John Timu?
Or they just have the same last name?

Cheers in advance.

Broncos Score Upset NYC Win

John Greco, Sportal http://www.broncos.com.au/news-display/Broncos-Score-Upset-NYC-Win/50491

The NRMA Insurance Brisbane Broncos have snapped a two-game NYC losing streak with a sensational 46-30 upset win over the second-placed Wests Tigers in an entertaining clash at Allianz Stadium on Friday night.
The Broncos overcame an early deficit to completely outclass the highly fancied Tigers, running in four first-half tries to take an eight-point lead to the break.
While the Tigers narrowed the margin to just two points early in the second half, Kurt Richards' side never looked rattled, surging away with four more tires to register their third win of the campaign.
In-form winger Tristian Lumley continued his impressive start to the season with two tries, while five-eighth Louis Frisby scored one try and kicked seven goals for an 18-point individual haul.
Caleb Timu, Daniel Levi, Corey Oates, Kodi Nikorima and Daniel Alvaro also grabbed four-pointers for the visitors.
The only downside for the Broncos was a leg injury to centre Zach Koitka, who did not return to the field after he was taken off early in the second half.
The Tigers made the perfect start when hooker Ben Saunders crashed over from dummy half in just the fourth minute to give the hosts an early 6-0 advantage.
But the lead was short-lived as Brisbane full-back Levi capitalised on a clever grubber kick from skipper Chris Binge to score beside the posts.
Frisby's simple conversion locked the scores up at 6-6.
It didn't take the Broncos long to then edge in front with another try just two minutes later to half-back Nikorima.
The crafty No.7 was the beneficiary of a lovely backline move that started when Timu released Koitka down the left before finding Levi in support, who had the simple job of drawing the fullback and sending Nikorima on an easy run to the tryline.
The Broncos youngsters then missed a glorious opportunity to extend their lead just three minutes later when some frantic play on the last tackle ended with Oates dropping the ball with the line wide open.
It proved a costly miss as just a minute later with the Tigers going down the other end a minute later with Asipeli Fine scoring to narrow the margin to 12-10.
Brisbane then took control of the match with the impressive Timu steam-rolling over for a well-deserved try on 23 minutes before Lumley grabbed a four-pointer of his own seven minutes before the break.
But just as it looked like the Broncos youngsters would take a healthy lead to the break, Fine crossed for his second try to make it 22-14 at half-time.
Just like the first half, it was the Tigers that came out of the sheds the quicker and they were rewarded with a try to interchange forward Inno Inosesio on 51 minutes.
But the Broncos managed to pull away again just three minutes later when Lumley finished off a neat backline move to burrow over in the corner.
Frisby nailed to sideline conversion to make it 28-20.
Brisbane then made sure of victory with Oates (60th), Alvaro (65th) and Frisby (74th) all scoring before full-time before the Tigers added some respectability to the score with late tries to winger David Nofoaluma and prop Nathan Brown.
Brisbane Broncos 46
Tries: Lumley 2, Levi, Nikorima, Timu, Oates, Alvaro, Frisby
Goals: Frisby 7
Wests Tigers 30

THE NRMA Insurance Brisbane Broncos NYC team were defeated 40-12 by Canberra Raiders NYC, with the scoreline failing to give a true reflection of the effort the boys put in.
Trailing 24-0 after almost as many minutes, the young Broncos side slugged it out in greasy conditions, unable to overturn the large deficit.
When the rain did come down during the halftime break it caused a drought on the scoresheet heading into the second half.
It took 14 minutes to break the stalemate and Brisbane gained first points of the second half when try-scoring machine Caleb Timu crashed over close to the line – his seventh try of the season.
Timu’s try gave the Broncos hope at 28-12, but Canberra killed off any hopes of a Brisbane comeback when Canberra fullback Jack Ahearn scored next to the posts to give the boys in green a 34-12 lead with 11 minutes to go.
Canberra enforcer Michael Chee Kam grabbed himself a hat-trick inside the last two minutes to give the visitors a 40-12 victory.
The Raiders opened the scoring in the fourth minute when Jack Ahearn’s dummy fooled the Brisbane defence and Chee Kam backed up his fullback’s good work to score under the posts.
Soon after conceding the first try, the Broncos defence was split open again. This time Canberra halfback Mitchell Cornish was the beneficiary as he skipped away to plant the ball under the sticks, converting his own try to give the visitors a 12-0 lead.
Michael Chee Kam grabbed his second try after the Raiders spread the ball wide, targeting the Broncos left edge and the Canberra forward showed a clean pair of heels to outpace Broncos fullback Daniel Levi and score.
18-0 soon became 24-0, as a Raiders’ inside ball found big-bopper Uiti Baker who barged his way through to score, leaving the young Broncos with all the work to do after 26 minutes of play.
Brisbane finally got on the scoresheet after the home side attacked Canberra’s short side and Benn Malley squeezed his way over the line. Louis Frisby nailed the difficult conversion attempt to reduce the deficit to 18 points in the 32nd minute.
Yet another Raiders line-break in the 38th minute saw Jeremy Hawkins streak down the left edge to score in the corner and give Canberra a 28-6 at the break.
Canberra Raiders NYC 40 (Michael Chee Kam 3, Mitchell Cornish, Uiti Baker, Jeremy Hawkins, Jack Ahearn tries; Mitchell Cornish 6 goals) def. Brisbane Broncos NYC 12 (Benn Malley, Caleb Timu tries; Louis Frisby 2 goals) at Suncorp Stadium.

Defence is killing this team, it's painful to watch.

So many breaks from simple misses, and then they try and attack their way back into games.

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.

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

http://www.broncos.com.au/site/_content/LeadImage/00024620-leadimage.jpg
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.

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.

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.
