Billy Slater is back and all eyes will be on the star fullback after he makes his return from his shoulder injury.  Cameron Munster moves to the halves to team up with Cooper Cronk.


The strong mail is that Jesse Bromwich, who battling to overcome a dislocated thumb is a very a good chance of playing and will come into the run on side. Meaning Tim Glasby will fall back to the bench and Vincent Leuluia will be the unlucky man to miss out.

James Roberts is a major a concern for the Broncos with their star centre struggling with a knee complaint. Roberts was seen at the Broncos final training run with his right knee was heavily strapped and a noticeable limp was evident throughout the final session. Wayne Bennett is expected Roberts to play and will give him up to kickoff to prove his fitness.

Jordan Kahu has been battling a corked thigh all week, but has looked to overcome the injury and chances of playing has increased since the week progressed.
Benji Marshall has trained with the main squad all week and is currently on standby for James Roberts and Jordan Kahu if one of them is to be a late withdrawal.
Alex Glenn who has been absence all week from Broncos training is a confirmed starter after his wife gave birth to their second child on Wednesday.
Matt Gillett has passed his final concussion protocol test and is a definite starter.
