Brisbane may be struggling for consistency in the NRL but surprisingly theyre following the form line of the clubs 2006 premiership-winning side.The Broncos have won just four of their 12 matches after a blistering start to the year to slip to sixth on the ladder with 26 points.Its a slump that has many questioning their premiership credentials but contains eerie similarities to the Broncos last title-winning season.10 years ago the Broncos won six of their first eight matches then just five of 13 from rounds nine to 23.After that they sparked a run of six wins from their last seven games to secure the premiership.Regaining consistency is the focus of Broncos coach Wayne Bennett after last weekends narrow 12-8 win over St George Illawarra.Brisbane last claimed back-to-back victories when they defeated Souths 30-8 at Suncorp on April 22.Bennett says backing up the victory over the Dragons this Friday against Parramatta is what his team needs to do with finals looming on the horizon.Weve got to put a line in the sand right now and start to back some games up, Bennett said.We expect Parramatta to be tough and theyll be desperate to play well. Weve got to answer that and be on our game ourselves, not be flat.The Broncos will be sweating on the fitness of Lachlan Maranta after he failed to complete training on Thursday due to a groin injury.With Jack Reed (shoulder), Jordan Kahu (pectoral) and Greg Eden (knee) already ruled out, the Broncos will turn to 21-year-old Jonus Pearson as cover for Maranta.Pearson starred for the Broncos under-20s last year and will make his NRL debut if Maranta cant complete a fitness test on Friday morning.The Eels sit 13th on the ladder after a one-point win over Manly last weekend.Brad Arthur has made a couple of changes from that winning side, with David Gower coming on to the bench and Peni Terepo starting at lock in place of Beau Scott.Winger Semi Radradra may also be a late inclusion after travelling to Brisbane with the team.BRONCOS v EELS - Key match stats* Brisbane have won three of their past four against Parramatta, with each victory coming by 10 points or more.* Brisbane have won 11 of 13 matches where they led at halftime but lost all seven matches where theyve been trailing at the break.* Parramatta have lost their past five matches in Queensland.(Source: Fox Sports Stats) Adam Engel Jersey .com) - Richie Incognito has reportedly been admitted to a psychiatric care unit in Arizona.

LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.Rory McIlroy believes his game is showing signs of improvement, despite a disappointing finish to a promising second round at the Wells Fargo Championship. The world No 3 picked up five shots in a four-hole stretch around the turn to briefly move within three strokes of midway leader Andrew Loupe, only to bogey his final two holes and close a three-under 69.Having followed an eagle-three at the seventh with a hat-trick of birdies to make his move up the leaderboard, McIlroy bounced back from a blemish at the 12th to leave a kick-in gain at the 14th. McIlroy, who struggled to an opening-round 73 on Thursday, then stuttered along the closing stretch, leaving his approaches in to the 15th and 16th short of the green before two-putting from 20 feet to bogey 17.Worse was to come when McIlroys second shot in to the last ended in the hazard, although a smart up-and-down ensured the two-time Quail Hollow champion would only drop one more stroke and stay within six of the lead.Obviously its not nice to finish the way I did with two bogeys, but the rest of the card looks pretty good, McIlroy told Sky Sports. I wish it was a little lower but its a step in the right direction. Im here for the weekend and hopefully I can put ttogether a weekend like I have here in the past.dddddddddddd Rory McIlroy I got it going in the middle of the round there and hit a lot of shots of much better quality than I hit yesterday, so I feel like I definitely improved on that.I worked on the range yesterday afternoon to try and work a couple of things out and it felt a little better out there for me today. McIlroy broke the course record to snatch a maiden PGA Tour title in this event in 2010, before going even lower on his way to a seven-shot victory last May.Both victories saw McIlroy overturn a large deficit to force his way up the leaderboard over the weekend, with the Northern Irishman now looking for a repeat performance this time around. The 27-year-old sits in a tie for 24th Im here for the weekend and hopefully I can put together a weekend like I have here in the past, McIlroy added. Ive had a couple of really low weekends here.If I can draw on those memories then I can go out and get off to a fast start tomorrow then Ill be right back in the tournament.Watch the Wells Fargo Championship throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Wells Fargo: R1 highlights Quail Hollow leaderboard Tackling the Green Mile Golf live on Sky Sports 4 ' ' '
