NRL Brisbane Broncos vs Canberra Raiders Live Streaming Free National Rugby League 2017. Brisbane Broncos vs Canberra Raiders match will be kick off at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Friday 24 March 2017 online, Time 20:05 (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Nine, Fox Sports, FOX Sports 2 & FOX Soccer Plus,Premier Sports.
On the back of a 40-point demolition of the Tigers last week, Canberra will take plenty of confidence into this clash with Brisbane – and they’ll need it when you take their recent record at Suncorp into consideration.
Canberra have lost eight of their past nine matches at the venue, including a tight tussle last year.
However after getting off the mark in emphatic fashion last week against a hapless Tigers outfit, Raiders fans will have cause for optimism ahead of the contest.
Both these sides are much better than their current 1-2 record suggests and they’ve each been dealt tough draws to begin the campaign.
The Raiders and Broncos both lost to the Cowboys in golden point, while Brisbane went down to Melbourne by two points last week and Canberra lost to defending premiers Cronulla a fortnight ago.
One of these sides will go 1-3 after this game, but there’s no doubt in my mind that both the Raiders and Broncos will be contesting finals football when all is said and done this season.
Canberra’s forward pack absolutely demolished the Tigers last week, and they will have to produce that type of performance again in order to give the halves space to create.
The Broncos were brave against Melbourne and survived a torrid onslaught on their own goal line for the majority of the encounter, but in the end it was a Cameron Smith sideline conversion that proved their undoing.
With two heartbreaking losses in succession fresh in their memory, the Broncos will be desperate to avoid another. I think Brisbane have been the more solid outfit so far this season and playing at home against an erratic Raiders outfit – who they also have a great record against – means that they should be too classy in a tight one.
