Trbojevic amped for Double Header
AFTER a stellar performance in the green and gold, Manly prop Jake Trbojevic is raring to do it all again in his club colours this weekend in one of the most action-packed nights in Rugby League - the Double Header.
Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium plays host to the back-to-back clash between the Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans, followed by the Brisbane Broncos and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles on Saturday night.
Trbojevic has no expectations of an easy game on Broncos turf despite Round 9's thrashing over the Rabbitohs 46-8, but says his side is ready to bring the heat to the sunshine state.
"The Broncos are tough to beat at any ground; quality side across the park," he said.
"We will have to play for the full 80 minutes to get the victory."
The side's focus will remain on defence after solid performances in recent weeks, and with the atmosphere of a Double Header he said it was hard not to up the ante.
"Last year's Double Header in Brisbane was an awesome experience in front of over 50,000 fans. You certainly lift for the occasion," Trbojevic said.
"We need to turn up again with the right attitude and work hard for each other.
"Suncorp is a great ground and one of the best in the world to play at. We are happy to play a 'home game' there in front of our Brisbane-based Manly supporters."
The statistics show it should be a Brisbane and Melbourne win, but if there is one thing the NRL isn't it's predictable.
"Two great games, four quality teams, a wealth of Origin and Test players, and the best ground in Queensland to play league out of. Enough said!" Trbojevic said.
Gates open at 4pm with Storm (1st) versus Titans (12th) kicking off at 5.40pm and Broncos (4th) versus Sea Eagles (6th) at 7.50pm.
