    Live: Wests Tigers v Broncos

    That's it from me - Glenn Jackson and Chris Barrett will have all the news from the press conferences and sheds in tomorrow's Herald and online and LeagueHQ.

    The Tigers did well to hang in after the Broncos could have blown them away if they'd converted their chances in the first half. The Broncos, with Wallace controlling the play, get the chocloates to enjoy on the trip back north.  

    80 min: Try. Humble gets the consolation try - inside ball from Marshall to the halfback from 5m out. Marshall misses from in front hitting the upright. That's fulltime and five losses in a row for the Wests Tigers, while the Broncos improve to 5-1. Broncos 18-14.

    76 min: Try. Ayshford in for the Tigers - nicely worked, simple move sees Farah put the centre over. And Marshall converts from out wide. Broncos 18-10.

    70 min: Try. The pressure finally tells. A wide bomb is taken by Copley and he makes up for his first half blunder and touches down in the corner. Parker hits the conversion attempt from out wide sweeter than a chocolate Easter egg. Broncos 18-4.

    69 min: And again. Hodges grubber is knocked over dead ball line. The mistake-free play from Broncos is strangling the West Tigers out of it.

    68 min: Another line-drop out from the Wests Tigers. Pressure keeps coming from Broncso. 

    67 min: Norman makes a nice snipe from 15m out, but caught short, another Wallace grubber results in Tigers caught in-goal. Drop-out.

    60 min: More enterprising play from the Wests Tigers is evenbtually shut down by the Broncos and Tuqiri is caught with the ball on the last.

    55 min: Some brilliant Wests Tigers outside-inside-outside passes results in a nice break to Tuqiri who finds Moltzen in support - a desperation pass out the back is grabbed by Ryan who puts in a disappointing grubber that goes dead in goal.

    50 min: Wallace is hit by a late Blair shoulder charge and hits the green hard. Penalty to Broncos - no report on that one. Broncos decide to go for the two. Parker drains it. Broncos 12-4 

    49 min: The Wests Tigers soft centre - not sure if they're Cadbury or Darrell Lea - holds firm for three sets in a row and get a 20m tap after a kick goes long. Then they get a penalty - that's 5-0 to the Tigers - to relieve the pressure.

    46 min: Some razzle dazzle from the Broncos ends with a Ayshford cleaning up a grubber in-goal. Broncos will come again after 20m drop. Another set of six results in Ryan cleaning up a Norman grubber in his in-goal. They'll get another set.

    44 min: Te'o's shoulder does some more damage. Farah runs into it attempting a tackle and next thing he knows he's on the deck with claret dripping from his nose. The police will want to licence that shoulder soon.

    41 min: And the Tigers get the second half underway.

    A giraffe beats a giant muffin in the on-field halftime entertainment - the ARLC really broke the bank to produce that gem.

    Here's Glenn Jackson's view of the first 40: "It is nothing short of an Easter miracle that the Tigers are just a converted try down at halftime. The Broncos could be 24 points up, thanks to Tim Moltzen's jitters and the Tigers' inability to hold onto the ball. Coach Tim Sheens at least has something to work with at halftime. That said, they will need to improve significantly if they are to trouble the Broncos, who are rolling forward and playing the sort of calm football they are renowned for."

    It's Golden Slipper weekend, so here's some classic Miracle Mal (Johnston, not Meninga) in the halftime ad.

     

    40 min: That's the break - Broncos lead it 10-4. Those two bombed tries could prove costly for the Broncos, they could have iced the game by now - at least 10 points went begging. 

    39 min:  A promising set from Tigers after the penalty ends with a knock down 10m out.

    38 min: Groat's in Disneyland - Te'o puts a massive shoulder on him and he hits the deck. Te'o's on report for that one. Groat is helped from the ground.

    35 min: Try. Tigers run the ball on the last 5m out, Marshall puts Ayshford into small gap, he's pulled down but pops it out the back, it bobbles around off Fulton's foot and he touches down. Video ref gives it the green light. It's ugly but the Tigers will take it. Marshall misses conversion. Broncos 10-4.

    31 min: Tigers defence holds strong after repeat sets from Broncos. A Wallace grubber goes dead in goal and then they get a penalty from holding down in the tackle.

    29 min: Moltzen is having a stinker. He finally catches a bomb and then drops the ball. Broncos scrum 10m out. His confidence must be lower than my bank account.

    25 min: Repeat from the Tigers - this time Moltzen and Tuqiri let a Norman bomb bounce and the Broncos regather. Two plays later and the Broncos bomb another. Lovely backline move but a Reed pass to Copley is spilled - he catches it and he's in the corner. 

    20 min: Gillett bombs a certain try. Hodges does his famous slow, fast, slow shimmy and makes a break on the halfway line, has Gillett in support but he drops the ball with the tryline wide open. That could have killed off the Tigers.

    16 min: Try. Reed's in again after some comedy gold from the Tigers. Moltzen and Ryan do the 'Yours, mine, yours, mine, aahh sh....' from a Wallace bomb and let it bounce - straight into the hands of Reed who crosses. Wallace converts. Broncos 10-0.

    11 min: Try. Reed scores after an amazing passage of play. First Marshall puts Moltzen through with a no-look inside pass and he's pulled down 15m out after a 50m gallop. Then pushing to the left Tuqiri drops a Marhsall pass and Norman is off to the races up the other end of field. He's tackled then it's out to Wallaces who's smashed in a tackle, but he flops it out to Norman before Reed slides in. Wallace misses from out wide. Broncos 4-0.

    8 min: Benji fires a brilliant pass out to Ayshford to put him in the clear on the halfway line, but he drops it cold.

    5 min: Gillett comes steaming in defence and comes off second best running into Galloway's shoulder. And he's penalised for being offside. Insult and injury etc. Tigers on attack 30m out, but spill the pill. Pressure off for Broncos

    3 min: A couple of settling sets from both teams, before the returning Farah finds touch on the Broncos 20m.

    1 min: And we're off - Broncos kick off.

    The Broncos are wearing their banana Paddle Pop strip tonight.  

    In the teams, Blake Ayshford will start after Joel Reddy was ruled out on Thursday night and Sean Meaney comes onto the bench. For the Broncos Corey Parker comes on to the bench with Scott Anderson keeping the tracksuit on. 

    Tim Sheens has been having two nightmares this week. In one, he relives the final four minutes of the Wests Tigers-South Sydney match from last weekend.

    In the other, he’s naked on the hill at a packed Leichhardt Oval. His first dream is the one that has him waking in a cold sweat.

    When you’re down, you’re down and the Tigers can’t take a trick. Beaten at the death last week, injuries, suspensions and the worst penalty record (36 conceded) in the NRL - the odds have been stacked against them worse than the chances of doughnut escaping a Homer Simpson visit to Lard Lad.

    In comparison the Broncos are sitting comfortably in equal second with a four from five record.

    Which brings us to the pre-match entertainment. It’s not only Friday, it’s Good Friday, (only read on if you want to suffer a terrible pun), Benji Marshall has (Sam) Thaiday on his mind so it’s The Easybeats with Friday On My Mind.

    • Hi Ben. Would it be fair to say both these sides are a mere shadow of the mighty South Sydney Rabbitohs?

      • The SFS has not been a good hunting ground for Wests. Perhaps they should relocate to Concord Oval or Homebush again....
