NRL Podcast: Renouf on the Broncos' new enforcer
The Brisbane Broncos have been craving an intimidating forward enforcer and in aggressive prop Tevita Pangai jnr they may have just found one.
That's the word from Broncos legend Steve Renouf on the NRL Podcast.
Pangai's statistics in the 24-20 win over the North Queensland Cowboys weren't startling but Renouf said his performance in the classic showdown certainly was.
Renouf has warned that the Broncos must back up what he said was a superb performance by the team last week when they take on the Wests Tigers on Friday night, while crediting Pangai for inspiring the win over the Cowboys.
"He wasn't going in half-hearted. He was putting shots on and I loved that. We haven't seen that from a Broncos team in a while,'' he said.
"A lot of people are saying we don't have a forward who is an aggressor, but he showed it the other night for a young bloke."
Renouf explains in the Podcast why he believes the Broncos can beat Wests Tigers in Campbelltown on Friday night and provides his analysis of the Melbourne Storm v North Queensland Cowboys and Gold Coast Titans v St George Illawarra Dragons fixtures.
Renouf has outlined how Titans five-eighth Kane Elgey can regain his mojo and expressed his concern for Elgey's tendency to second guess himself.
"We've all seen what he can do after he flew onto the scene in 2015 and had a blinder," Renouf said.
"Garth Brennan needs to have a conversation with him and ask him 'what works for you?'
"You've got no time to second guess yourself when you play in the seven or six. You've got to rely on your instincts."
