Broncos shaken by losing streak

THERE is no doubt the Broncos are in uncharted territory - the proud club with six premierships to its name currently sits in 11th place, losing its past three straight.

Going into Monday night's clash against Canberra, which the team lost 30-18, Brisbane was ranked last for conceding, as well as scoring, tries through the middle of the field.

Their first-half defence against the Raiders once again let them down, going into half-time trailing 24-6.

Broncos coach Anthony Griffin knows things are not quite right at Red Hill, but implored his charges to keep working hard to turn their season around.

"We have got ourselves in a hole and there is only one way we can get ourselves out of it - look it square in the eye and keep fighting," he said.

"With that first half (against Canberra) we didn't give ourselves a chance."

Broncos captain Sam Thaiday, who tried hard for a total of 134 metres against the Raiders, is not giving up on his side's finals hopes just yet.

"Nothing really goes for you when you are losing games," he said.

"It's going to take a lot of fight and hard work to get out of what has been happening.

"But we have a very talented squad and we have to believe in it."
