Phil's tip: Warriors by six.

AAP writes: Both sides head into this match following a bye with very similar squads to their line ups two weeks ago. While the Broncos will be out for revenge following their 56-18 humiliation at the hands of the Warriors in round 12, three losses from their last four starts suggests they don't have the form to do so. The in-form Warriors on the other hand have won four straight, two of which were over top four sides.
