2020 NRL preview: Brisbane Broncos team guide
After a record defeat in last year’s finals, the Broncos are looking to set things right this season.
Updated . What changed?
Anthony Seibold's first year as Broncos coach didn't exactly go as planned. While they are always striving for a top-four finish, they managed to only land eighth on the ladder in 2019. The Broncos were then eliminated from the finals after a humiliating 58-0 loss to the Eels.
As a result, the team underwent some changes ahead of the 2020 NRL season. Alex Glenn is now team captain, with Darius Boyd still a member of the leadership group. Ex-Storm half Brodie Croft has become part of the squad. Seibold will be hoping that Croft's partnership with Anthony Milford will prove fruitful for the Broncos as the new NRL season kicks off.
Add in the fact that the Broncos have some of the most intimidating young forwards in the game and prospects on Red Hill are looking up.
How to watch Brisbane Broncos NRL matches
Rugby League fans can watch the majority of Broncos games live and free on the Nine Network. However, not all of Brisbane's games or NRL matches involving other teams are available on free-to-air TV. For the Broncos, five of their remaining fixtures in the revamped draw will be exclusive to FOX LEAGUE.
For those games you'll have to catch them via Kayo Sports, Foxtel or Foxtel Now. Out of those three Kayo Sports has the cheapest monthly price at $25/month and the most features including Interactive Stats.
Your final option is to watch via NRL Live Pass. Telstra customers are able to access this for free, but it isn't the best option unless you're caught out from home because NRL Live Pass is limited to just a seven-inch display size.
