Show Preview

The Brisbane Broncos will be desperate to send off captain Alex Glenn with a win when they host a Newcastle Knights team which can’t be budged from seventh. Tune in to the action from Suncorp Stadium with live scores on The Roar from 3pm (AEST).

Glenn bows out after nearly 300 games at the club since his debut in 2009, including becoming the Broncos’ youngest-ever captain when he filled in for the great Darren Lockyer in 2011. In his twilight years, he’s transitioned to a mentoring role for the next generation as they look to bounce back from a horror two years.

Only Lockyer, Sam Thaiday and Corey Parker have played more games for the Broncos than Glenn – and with the team’s fortunes looking up with some strong form to end the year, he can be confident he leaves them well placed for future success.

Finals preparations start now for the Knights, and while they’re guaranteed seventh, they won’t want to flirt with their form ahead of as many as four sudden-death matches to claim the unlikeliest of premierships. When they’re on, Adam O’Brien’s team can take it to just about any team in the competition – and with five consecutive wins, they’re in tiptop shape at the most important time.

Daniel Saifiti, Jayden Brailey and Mitch Barnett have all been given a rest by O’Brien, but stars Kalyn Ponga and Mitchell Pearce will both line up. At the Broncos, Jordan Riki looks set to play despite being a late withdrawal last week with an ankle issue.
