The Brisbane Broncos have scored three tries in their last four games, including a late strike against Melbourne Storm in the NRL’s grand final.
But the club’s hopes of winning a third consecutive grand final have been dashed, with the Broncos losing their final two games in round one to Sydney Roosters and Cronulla Sharks.
Key points:Broncos coach Trent Robinson says he would have preferred to have more points scored in his team’s last four matchesBut the Broncos are looking to avenge their loss to Cronulla in round twoAFL grand final champion Michael Jennings says the team needs to have a ‘clean slate’ ahead of the grand final”I think the only thing that’s changed for us is our mindset and how we play the game,” Bulldogs coach Brad Scott said.
“We need to be clean and honest and be consistent in the way we play.”
The Bulldogs had only three tries at the start of the season, including in their final game against St George Illawarra in round three.
“The last couple of games we’ve scored two tries and then we’ve come out and scored a few tries, so it’s good to see a clean slate in that,” Scott said on SEN radio.
“But the next game is a really important one for us and we’ve got a couple of big games coming up, so we’re looking forward to it.”
The Titans are hoping to keep pace with the Brisbane Broncos in the finals, with their best win coming over the Storm at Parramatta Stadium.
The Titans have scored just three tries this season and have scored an average of 23.6 points per game.
Coach Nathan Brown says the Titans are looking forward with confidence after a win against the Storm.
“I’ve said it for the last couple weeks that we’re confident in the team we have,” Brown said.
“We’re confident we can do it and that we’ll have a good group of players.”
“We’ve got our hands full in our second-half.
They’re very strong in their game.
It’s a tough game to play, but we’ll take the next step and get to our first grand final.”
