    Preston is in doubt with a medial knee injury... I reckon he will play though.

    We will need him in this one, he has given us so much ticker this year!

    brisbane have a few key players back, and after there win on the weekend there confidence will be sky high, one thing in the titans favour is that with these players back they might need the run before hitting their straps

    Gotta have Bird up front for the early game venom. Then do the switcheroo with Preston.

    Next thing the Broncos will dust off Hodges!

    Broncos will field their strongest side this year.
    Not only do there get three of their big names back, in Wallace, Kenny and Winterstien...they also bring Gillette back on the bench...I got wraps on this guy.

    I reckon we get up in Folau's face and hit Lockyer's runners...leave Lockyer with the ball...he likes to pass in his old age and wont run far with ball in hand...I'd doubt weather he'll run near Bird at all.


    This is one big weekend of Rugby League!

    Triple threat Broncos return

    Peter Wallace, Matt Gillett and Antonio Winterstein are back to bolster the Broncos ahead of Friday night’s showdown with the Gold Coast Titans.

    The Suncorp Stadium clash between the two south-east Queensland rivals will kick-off an explosive Heritage Round ahead of State of Origin selection early next week. Halfback Wallace and first-year utility Gillett missed three weeks with identical knee injuries suffered against Cronulla in Round Six.

    Winger Winterstein has missed two weeks with a hamstring injury and will return on the left flank.

    Prop Nick Kenny, originally named last week before withdrawing the day before the big 36-14 upset win over the Storm, hopes to return Friday from a calf injury.

    The big returns coincide with hardworking lock Corey Parker’s 200th NRL match.

    After debuting as a prop in 2001, the versatile Parker has become a valuable goal-kicking lock forward.

    The young Broncos were glowing after comprehensively defeating a star-studded Melbourne side in their first outing at new home AAMI Park.

    Unfortunately with the four regular first graders returning for the Titans game, Brisbane coach Ivan Henjak could find no room for rookies Dale Copley and Michael Spence to back up from last week’s heroics.

    Corey Norman, who shone in the halves on Sunday, has been named 18th man for this weekend.

    Regular halfback Wallace resumes his duties against the Titans while Ben Hunt, as he did against Storm, will play hooker.

    Prop Scott Anderson suffered an elbow ligament injury against Melbourne and will miss the next three weeks.

    Lagi Setu pushes up into the front row while utility back and occasional dummy-half Gerard Beale is the first member of a five man bench.

    Fullback Josh Hoffman spent most of the second half against Melbourne on his way to hospital with fears he had broken ribs.

    However scans cleared the young custodian of serious injury and he declared himself a “certain starter” on the Broncos website.

    Titans expect tussle

    The Gold Coast Titans will prepare for a tough match, with two of the last four meetings between the clubs at Suncorp Stadium finishing in golden point wins to Brisbane.

    The Titans will also have memories of the last meeting between the clubs in which Brisbane ran out 40-32 winners at Skilled Park in week one of the 2009 finals.

    Coach John Cartwright again named an unchanged 17 as his side chase their fourth consecutive victory.

    Last week the Titans won a high-scoring thriller 38-36 against the Knights in Newcastle to share the competition lead with St George-Illawarra.

    Preston Campbell suffered a minor knee injury but is expected to be fit for the Broncos on Friday night.

    The match is expected to attract a large crowd ahead of Round 11 byes for both clubs.

    Corey Parker prepares for 200th NRL game

    He's got more hair and less beef than the bald headed teenager who scored a try on debut for Brisbane in 2001 but Corey Parker has proved himself to be one of rugby league's most adaptable players.

    The 28 year-old forward, who has re-invented himself as the game has evolved, brings up his 200th NRL game against the Gold Coast on Friday night in close to the best form of his career.

    "When I first started I had a shaved head and a slightly bigger frame but the game was different back then," said Parker.

    "Looking back I wouldn't want it any other way, they were two pretty fair guys to learn some traits off."

    Parker said the athleticism and endurance of the players these days was a lot better than it was when he first started out.

    The game isn't the only thing that has changed.

    Parker has gone from a beefy 108kg goal-kicking prop, to a second-rower who played for Queensland to a mobile 80-minute lock who's now firmly back in the State of Origin picture again.

    He's still playing alongside Darren Lockyer and has seen several star Broncos call it a day.

    Parker said having spent all his time playing in the company of someone of the calibre of Lockyer had been "special".

    "When I came into first grade 10 years ago playing alongside some of those guys I looked up to and had idolised as a young kid, a lot of those players are finished now," he said.

    "To have played that whole time with Locky, you get to appreciate and respect the type of player he is playing alongside side him every week.

    "All the young guys coming through now like the Corey Normans and Ben Hunts who are only 18, they're playing alongside Locky which is something they probably never thought they'd do and something which will prove invaluable for them and their careers.

    Parker is keen to see out his career at the Broncos as a one club player and said reaching the 200 mark was a big moment.

    "It's a huge milestone for me personally," said Parker.

    "I've said it before, I live and breath the Broncos, it would be great to finish here."

    Parker's switch from the back-row to lock in 2009 proved a masterstroke by coach Ivan Henjak.

    He had an outstanding season as Brisbane climbed out of a deep hole to make the finals and was a unanimous choice as the club's player-of-the-year.

    "Corey has been quite durable over the years," said Broncos coach Ivan Henjak.

    "I think he was 108 kilos at one stage and looked like a fat rolly polly but now he's down to 98 kilos and is lean and mean.

    "He's been durable and adaptable. The amount of work he can do and the minutes he plays, not many players can do that."

    Titan Presto hits stumbling block

    GOLD Coast Titan's game breaker Preston Campbell is in doubt to line up against the Broncos on Friday night after suffering medial ligament damage during the clubs narrow win over Newcastle at the weekend.

    Campbell sent an injury scare through the Titans camp in the wake of the 38-36 victory, with Gold Coast staff rating him long odds to back up against Brisbane given the short turnaround.

    But the pocket dynamo said yesterday he was hopeful the knee injury would improve sufficiently to allow him to take his place in the side.

    I have got a bit of a strain, one of the Newcastle boys landed on it in a tackle and it pulled up a bit dodgy after the game once I started to cool down a bit, said Campbell.

    But it is feeling all right today. It has already freed up a little bit more with some work from the physio.

    The Titans will be desperately hoping Campbell can get himself fit for Friday nights grudge match against Brisbane, with the evergreen 33-year-old currently in the form of his life.

    Campbell has provided the spark for the Titans to post hoodoo-busting victories on the road against Manly and Newcastle in recent weeks, with his effort against the Knights moving Titans coach John Cartwright to suggest the crowd favourite wouldnt look out of place in a blue No.7 jersey for the opening State of Origin clash in two weeks.

    Campbell, whose effort against the Knights earned him a spot on this weeks shortlist alongside Greg Bird and Clinton Toopi in voting for the Bulletins Titans Fans Player of the Year award, is the only major injury concern for the Titans ahead of the southeast Queensland blockbuster.

    The Titans have a terrible record at Suncorp Stadium, having won just one game from six appearances at the Brisbane venue, and while the Broncos have been woeful in 2010, Campbell said their victory over the Storm at the weekend proved they could not be taken lightly.

    It is pretty important that we turn up in defence, said Campbell.

    We pride ourselves on defence but we lacked a little bit against the Knights.

    We were happy to get away with the two points but it was disappointing to leak so many points.

    In a way we were lucky, because usually if a side scores 36 points you are on the other end of the result.

    They have been calling the Broncos the baby Broncos but they cant now after what they did to Melbourne.

    They put 30-odd points on one of the best defensive sides, so we definitely have to tighten things up.

    One win from six appearances, that is shocking, shocking.

    Let's make a change to that this Friday night!

    Hope Pesto turns out, we need him.
