    The Broncos are beginning to fade and stumble with sides looking to pass them on the ladder during this second half of the NRL competition.

    Coming of the bye, Brisbane need to improve on recent performances and despite an away win in Canberra, have leaked points and lacked their usual conviction and flair in recent weeks.

    Their last game against the Storm was simply embarrassing, clearly showing the gap in quality between the two title contenders at this current time in the competition.

    However, Brisbane have a habit of regaining form after the Origin period as players refocus on their club roles and beginning pushing for a top 8 finish come the end of the season.

    Ben Hunt, Matt Gillett and more return to the club this week as the Broncos look to overcome a Knights side which has struggled throughout the year.

    The Newcastle outfit have been a shambles off and on the field and despite some spirited performances, are rock bottom after 16 rounds.

    To add insult to injury, the Knights enter this match in terrible form, losing all of their past five games and struggling to gather wins so far this season.

    Prediction
    The well-rested Broncos should be confident coming into this match, despite recent form. Their origin players will have gained confidence from the midweek result at Suncorp Stadium and will look to solidify their top 8 position in Newcastle this weekend.
