NRMA Insurance Brisbane Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough says controlling the ruck against the Warriors tomorrow will be the key to success.

To shut down the ruck the Broncos will have to cancel out Warriors’ sparkling recruit Isaac Luke.

Luke is renowned for his speed and ease at getting out of dummy-half quickly to put the opposition on the back foot.

“With Isaac you have got to be on your toes right from the start as he likes to get out of dummy half at tackle three or four,” McCullough said.

“Isaacs’ great when he gets his forwards running over the advantage line.

“He can get out of dummy half and have his run and he has a forward pack he can benefit from.”

“If we can control the ruck and control the speed down we will be right.

“If we don’t he will have a good day.”

McCullough is not taking the Warriors’ lacklustre first-round performance as an example of what might come tomorrow night at Suncorp Stadium.

The Warriors were beaten 34-26 in a boilover by the West Tigers, but the 26-year-old rake is expecting a much tougher contest this time.   .  

“I would not read too much into their performance last week,” said McCullough.

“We got beaten 36-6 last year (in round one), then we turned it around.

“It is early rounds - obviously you want to get off to a good start but its not the ‘be-all or end-all’.

“The Warriors always play very strongly against us, no matter where they are coming on the ladder. “

The new­ interchange rule has been a big talking point but McCullough has not noticed a great deal of change so far.

“It only being round one you have got to get the kilometres in the legs,” he said.

“After around seven or eight weeks of footy we will be able to find out if (the interchange) does benefit.

“Until then I don’t think it will be a major impact - everyone’s fresh and injuries are gone.

“You might see a benefit at the back end of the year.”
