Rugby League: Brisbane can bounce back.

Byline: Graham Woods

THREE teams are locked at the top of the NRL table with 30 points after the Sydney Roosters' defeat of Canberra Raiders yesterday, and Brisbane Broncos could join them if they triumph in this morning's live clash against Cronulla Sharks.

Brisbane's charge into the play-offs has been hampered by recent defeats when top players have been unavailable - they were thumped 40-4 by Canterbury when the big names were rested ahead of Origin Three and lost to Manly last week with an injury-hit side and four players lining up who had been on international duty just the day before.

However, the Broncos should be more like their old selves again today as they face a Sharks side whose season is

effectively over. Cronulla coach Chris Anderson has named

the same side that was overwhelmed by the Raiders last week.

It is not a game to get carried away with, but a small interest in Brisbane conceding just four points should spice up the live TV action.

Recommendation

Brisbane -4

2pts 4-5 (Bet365)
