Oates Starts In Pack, Pangai Junior To Prop

Corey Oates has been promoted to the backrow while Tevita Pangai Junior bolsters the front row in the two changes to the Broncos’ starting side for Saturday night’s clash with the Bulldogs at Suncorp Stadium.

Pangai Junior started on an edge in last week’s loss to the Warriors but has been brought into the middle to combat a Bulldogs front row containing Dylan Napa and Aiden Tolman as the Broncos look to break through for a win.

Oates played off the bench last week in his 150th NRL game but will start in the second row this week, while Tom Flegler moves back to the bench alongside Tom Dearden, Rhys Kennedy and Ben Te’o.

Injured trio Kotoni Staggs (hamstring), Matt Lodge (knee) and Cory Paix (pectoral) all trained for parts of today’s session and have been named on an extended bench along with Jamil Hopoate.
