The all-conquering Broncos enter the NRLW season not as premiership favourites for the first time in the history of the competition and after last year’s fade out have plenty to prove.
Newcastle have gone on a major recruitment spree over the offseason and they had to after a humiliating season where they failed to win a game and conceded over 24 points per game.
They may be at home and they have certainly bought some big names including Tamika Upton and Millie Boyle from the Broncos but there is no way this line should be so small.
Brisbane still have a superstar team led by one of the greatest of all-time in Ali Brigginshaw. No team knows winning like this Broncos team. Stick with them.

Tarryn Aiken, the wiry Broncos five-eighth, scored two tries for the Broncos last season and scored in Origin for Queensland this year. Looks a big price.
