Vote of confidence for Broncos forward pack

6:37 am on 10 March 2009

The former Australian rugby league prop Greg Dowling has warned critics against writing off Brisbane's untested forward pack.

Much has been made of whether the Broncos' 2009 pack will be able to lay a platform for their Hollywood backline following the loss of five key players and the departure of coach Wayne Bennett.

Dowling says on paper the Broncos are still a good side and he's sure Nick Kenny will measure up, as will Australian rep Joel Clinton.

He says Sam Thaiday, Corey Parker have played Origin and that young kid Dave Taylor is a gun prospect.
