Broncos vs Cowboys Preview & Prediction

The Broncos will be looking to continue their dream start to the season when they come up against rivals the Cowboys at Suncorp on Sunday.

Brisbane have won a combined 10 games over the last two seasons, but they are already on the cusp of three from three in 2022 after some impressive performances across the opening fortnight.

Kevin Walters’ side were able to topple last season’s grand finalists the Rabbitohs without star recruit Adam Reynolds before the halfback made his club debut in last week’s gritty 16-10 victory over the Bulldogs.

Penrith’s premiership winner Kurt Capewell has also been a tremendous signing, with the Broncos all of a sudden looking like they have the roster to challenge for the top eight this year.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys were poor in their opening round defeat to the Bulldogs, scoring just the one try, but they bounced back strongly last week, taking out the Raiders convincingly by a 26-6 score.

North Queensland have been struggling since the retirement of Johnathan Thurston, but they will be hoping the experience of Chad Townsend will help lift the club back up the ladder.

VERDICT:

With both teams coming off confidence-boosting wins last week, we can expect a cracking contest between these two rivals.

Brisbane have the advantage at home – the Cowboys have only won two of their last 13 trips to Suncorp, while their performance against the Dogs in Round 1 is an example of how they can struggle to score points against a strong defence, which the Broncos have displayed across the first two rounds.

It should be fairly close, but back the Broncos to get the job done and notch up three consecutive wins for the first time since 2019 (Best Broncos -3.5 line odds $1.65 with bet365.)
