Home side’s forward have too much firepower for Broncos.
Canterbury-Bankstown is back in the NRL winner’s circle after defeating the Brisbane Broncos 24-14 at ANZ Stadium.
After being blown off the park by Newcastle last round, Canterbury were desperate to show they were still on an upswing with their form.
Despite dominating the game for most of the way, the two competition points were not sealed for the Bulldogs until Frank Pritchard scooped up a Broncos turnover to score in the 75th minute.
Brisbane were still in the game at half-time down by just two points, but crucially the home side scored the first two tries of the second stanza through Sam Kasiano and Aiden Tolman to see them surge ahead 18-4 after 58 minutes.
Jordan Kahu then hit back for the Broncos when he leapt onto a Corey Norman cross-field kick in the 67th minute before a consolation try to Lachlan Maranta put respectability in the final score for the away side.
Canterbury will be sweating on the grading of a high tackle by Pritchard, when he was placed on report for his shot on Peter Wallace in the 69th minute.
