Sam Thaiday shifts blame from Brisbane’s halves after Dragons debacle

SOME brutal home truths have steeled Brisbane’s pack for their NRL clash with North Queensland after Sam Thaiday claimed the Broncos forwards let their halves down against St George Illawarra.

Halfback Kodi Nikorima and pivot Anthony Milford have copped criticism for their lack of impact after the Broncos were thrashed 34-12 by the Dragons in their season-opener last week.

But veteran back-rower Thaiday says the forwards were to blame and wants to make amends against the Cowboys after some sobering honesty sessions.
