The Broncos are coming off a disappointing 34-12 loss to the Penrith Panthers. The team’s woes were compounded by the absence of Captain Adam Reynolds and forward leader Payne Haas. An early injury to fullback Reece Walsh, also forced him off the field after a head clash with Taylan May.

Their last game also served as a rematch of last year’s Grand Final. The Broncos experienced heartbreak as the Panthers pulled off an all-time comeback, overturning a 12-24 deficit to win 26-24 and secure their third straight premiership.

While the Broncos (1-2) are licking their wounds, the North Queensland Cowboys (3-0) have been in scintillating form. The Cowboys remain the only undefeated team in the league through three rounds.

The Broncos will aim to get their season back on track and claim bragging rights in the Queensland Derby.
