Disgraceful loss to Melbourne 4 - 40. Heads must roll. No chance for 2019.
I didn't mind that loss.
I don't like either side really BUT Broncos supporters have always shown they believe they almost have a divine right to win so a little reality check could be good for them.
They are also in a rebuilding phase under their new coach so don't expect consistency from them until next season....maybe

The contract, which includes a player option for each of the final two years, comes after the 22-year-old featured in 13 matches so far in 2019.

The Broncos' late charge for a finals berth has been rocked by news that Tevita Pangai and Jake Turpin are facing suspension.

Both players have been charged with grade two dangerous contact to the head/neck after incidents in Brisbane's crucial 24-12 home win over Penrith.

Pangai could miss five matches after he was charged in relation to a tackle on James Maloney in the 79th minute.

Even if he takes an early guilty plea the Broncos forward will miss four games due to carryover points from previous offences.

Turpin was charged for a hit on Panthers fullback Dylan Edwards and will miss two games if takes an early plea. An unsuccessful challenge at the judiciary would rule Turpin out for three matches.

The Broncos have decided to fight the dangerous contact to the head/neck charge against Tevita Pangai after his tackle on James Maloney in the 24-12 win over the Panthers on Friday night.

Pangai could miss five matches due to carryover points from previous offences, but the club announced on Sunday it would seek a down-grading.

"If the Broncos can successfully lower the grading of the charge, Pangai could reduce his suspension from four matches down to just one game," the statement said.

Meantime, the Broncos have accepted a grade two dangerous contact charge against Jake Turpin, which will see the No.7 miss two games.

Turpin was charged for a hit on Panthers fullback Dylan Edwards.

He is probably out for the season then. I don't think the Broncos will get to Week 3 of the Finals.

A draw between Wests and Cronulla today would see the Broncs miss the finals.

Stranger things have happened.

After last year's debacle against Saints in the first Semi - to see them walloped 58 zip this year is hard to believe.

If they'd gotten the 5 or 6 missed goals it was nearly 70 points !!!

How can you argue "surprise" or not ready. Surely they know its a Final and are ready ?

Parra were on song - but some of the Brisbane players looked as if they didn't care. That's just not good enough.

Yet they argue a few of them should be on a $1m plus next season !

Ofahengaue was charged with grade-one dangerous contact for a 14th-minute incident involving Mitchell Moses as well as a 69th-minute grade-one careless high tackle on Eels winger Blake Ferguson.

He is facing a one-match ban for the dangerous contact and cannot escape a suspension with an early guilty plea as well as an $1800 fine for the Ferguson hit.
