2015 kicks off with last season’s premiers facing the new look Brisbane Broncos.
As always with Round 1 matches it is difficult to assess where certain teams are at, however both these sides have had impressive pre-season victories in the UK which bodes well for a successful first up assault.
Brisbane have won 9 of the past 12 matches at this ground against Souths, although the Bunnies have won the last 2 here.
The Broncos have won 5 of their past 9 Round 1 matches at home, whilst Souths have generally been slow starters winning just 5 of their past 14 Round 1 assignments.
No doubt the Broncos players will be keen to impress new coach Wayne Bennett, and I give them a live chance in this one considering their record against their opponents.
I can see this being a close, low scoring game throughout and for that reason I’ll take either side to get up in a tight one.
Verdict: Tri Bet Either Team Under 6.5 Points at $2.85 with
