On Saturday night the Brisbane Broncos will host the North Queensland Cowboys in the second qualifying final. This will be the 38th time these two teams have gone into battle, including several finals appearances. The last time they faced off the Cowboys won 31-20.

The Broncos are arguably the strongest team in the competition. Despite last week’s loss to the Storm, they will enter this one with plenty of confidence. Ben Hunt, Alex Glenn and Jordan Kahu have been named and despite a midweek hamstring strain Corey Parker has been cleared to play. Their inclusions bring the Broncos to a virtually full strength side.

Coming off a strong win against the Titans, the Cowboys are looking very much in tune. However, this season they have struggled with slow starts, giving up multiple try leads early in 5 of their last six games. This week they’ll need to strike fast and defend against the most attacking team in the league. If JT turns it on they will be competitive but he can’t do it alone. Michael Morgan is the only change for the Cowboys, while Ray Thompson moves to an extended bench.

There a plenty of similarities in these two teams game styles. The difference is Brisbane score fast and consistently and the Cowboys don’t. That will be their weak point. Looking at the stats, the Broncos are the defensive favourites. They lead the Cowboys in tackles, averaging 350.04 per game and concede fewer tries with just 2.71 against 3.25 for the Cowboys.

This one is going to be explosive. These two teams will get the whole state involved. Expect the Broncos to attack the Cowboys right side. We think the first half will be all Broncos with the Cowboys making a late charge. Broncos to win by 10
