Broncos' home turf a happy hunting ground for Storm

Veteran centre Will Chambers is banking on the Storm's impressive recent record at Suncorp Stadium to help them bounce back to form against the Broncos on Friday night.

The league leaders travel north looking to rebound from their 11-10 extra time loss to the Sea Eagles on the weekend and will face a Broncos side that has climbed into the top eight and is unbeaten in the past month.

The Storm haven't lost to the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium since round two in 2009 and Chambers is hoping the trend continues.

"They are a dangerous side and they have got a big forward pack and some talented outside backs and, with Anthony Milford at fullback now, that is where a lot of their strike is coming," Chambers said on Tuesday.

"We saw on the weekend that they can score points through their middle with Matt Lodge, Payne Haas and young David Fifita, so it's a big task for us.

Oates hopes to stay with Broncos

"They can put points on at the click of their fingers and we have got a big task ahead."

The Storm thrashed the Eels 64-10 in their most recent trip to Brisbane during NRL Magic Round and their two matches at Suncorp last year resulted in double-digit victories against the Titans and Broncos.

Chambers said the club always received a bit of extra support when they travel north and he hopes there will be plenty of purple jerseys on display in the crowd on Friday night.

Tackle of the week: Round 19

"We have had three great Queenslanders (Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cooper Cronk) play down here for such a long time and we are every Queenslanders' second team," Chambers said.

"We do get a little bit of support up there ... Suncorp is great to play there and we look forward to playing there.

"It will be good to get up there. It is the best stadium in Australia to play rugby league in apart from here (AAMI Park) and all the boys are looking forward to it."

And while Chambers admits the temptation is there to look ahead to see who his team might face in the finals, the 31-year-old knows it's important to remain focused on getting back to winning form.

"It's (the premiership race) is very wide open, but we can’t worry about that," he said.

"We have just got to worry about the Broncos this weekend really. This competition is very wide open and it is important you don’t worry about the back end of it too far."
