NRL Brisbane Broncos vs Gold Coast Titans Live Streaming Free National Rugby League 2017. Brisbane Broncos vs Gold Coast Titans match will be kick off at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Friday 14 April 2017 online, Time 19:50 (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Nine, Fox Sports, FOX Sports 2 & FOX Soccer Plus,Premier Sports.
After a promising start to the south-east Queensland rivalry (the Titans won two of the first three games between the sides), it’s been all the Broncos, who have emerged triumphant in 15 of the next 18 – including winning five on the bounce.
Furthermore, the Titans haven’t conquered Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium since 2007. But Good Friday is as good a time as any for a ‘rivalry resurrection’ and Gold Coast will be more determined than ever after bowing out to the Broncos in controversial circumstances in last season’s finals series.
On paper, Brisbane’s 44-28 triumph appears dominant, but the Titans were right in the game up until the final 15 minutes, while they were also unlucky with several refereeing decisions.
A return to Suncorp with revenge on their mind could inspire the Titans to victory. However they need significant improvement following last week’s 42-16 home loss to Canberra, while they have also been hit hard with injuries.
Meanwhile, Brisbane produced their best win of the season last week in a comprehensive 32-8 victory over the high-flying Sydney Roosters.
The Broncos were forced to endure one of the toughest opening draws I’ve seen, facing last season’s grand finalists Cronulla and Melbourne and preliminary finalists Canberra and North Queensland, along with an under-fire Canterbury outfit and the top four Roosters side.
Wayne Bennett’s troops have come out the other side and sit in seventh spot after winning three of those aforementioned fixtures – a record you’d take, with the Broncos now in a great position to start beginning a charge towards the top four.
Brisbane have suffered a blow with Ben Hunt out with a hamstring problem, but such is their tremendous, battle-hardened form, they should have far too much firepower for the Titans, who are struggling after losing their last three games. Broncos to emerge comfortable winners.
