The super-coach says Saturday will be like Origin

Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett says Saturday night's sold out double header at Suncorp Stadium could encourage league officials to look at more events like it in the future.

While Bennett says while the big crowd will be predominantly Broncos fans he says the quality of games with three of the top four placed NRL sides on show should generate an Origin-like atmosphere.

Melbourne play the Cowboys in the first game at 5.30pm followed by Brisbane and Manly.

Meanwhile Bennett has strongly defended his enforcer Adam Blair against criticism from former Bronco's skipper Gorden Tallis that he is the game's dirtiest player.
