We are running over you on Thursday night. That’s the message from St George Illawarra to the Brisbane Broncos ahead of their NRL opener at Kogarah.
Hooker Cameron McInnes made it clear that the Dragons game plan was to run straight and hard with wet weather predicted.
“In terms of our game plan, it probably doesn’t change a lot because we’re a power based team with the big forwards we have,” McInnes said.
“With my kicking game, that’s something I am looking to implement a lot more this year. Also Ben Hunt’s such a great kicker of the footy, I reckon he’s probably one of the best in the game, so if he has a good look, then I’ll be giving him the ball.”
It will also be the NRL return of Broncos prop Matt Lodge who will have a target on his chest against a fired up Saints pack that includes James Graham.
