Griffin to chat live on NRL.com today
Tracie Edmondson, NRL.com
Broncos coach Anthony Griffin will be available for an exclusive online chat on NRL.com from midday today (Thursday) on the eve of Brisbane's clash with defending premiers St George Illawarra at Suncorp Stadium.
Griffin has reversed his policy of resting Origin veterans Darren Lockyer and Sam Thaiday as he did for Origin I and the ANZAC Test, and like his opposite Wayne Bennett, yesterday named all Origin players to back up on Friday from tonight's Origin II encounter at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.
The Dragons have five players in the Blues side and one in the Maroons team, while the fifth-placed Broncos have five players in the Queensland team.
A depleted Dragons, minus their six Origin stars, lost only their second match of the season last weekend, going down 28-14 to a desperate 14th-place Titans, ending an unbeaten run of 10 games (9 wins and 1 draw).
Meanwhile the Broncos, who won seven of their first eight games, then lost three of their next five matches when the rep season started, befoore beating the last-placed Raiders 25-24 in golden point last weekend in the absence of their Origin stars.
