A cracking contest awaits on Thursday night at Suncorp Stadium when the Brisbane Broncos and Sydney Roosters collide. Both sides are coming off surprise last-start defeats, and they will be determined to return to the winners circle.
One of the biggest shocks in terms of ladder positioning over the first five rounds of the season is the Broncos and their current mark of ninth. Brisbane have yet to really put in a bad performance, but they find themselves at 2-3 to begin the campaign, and it certainly doesn’t get any easier this week with the third-placed Roosters.
Brisbane have defeated Cronulla and Canberra – the reigning premiers and preliminary finalists – and lost to the Cowboys, Storm and Bulldogs in atrocious conditions last week. I can’t remember a tougher start to a season in recent memory.
I’ve got no doubt in my mind that the Broncos would have conquered Canterbury if the game was played on a dry track, but the wet conditions played right into the Bulldogs’ hands, and the Broncos failed to execute and cross the line for the final 70 minutes of the game.
While the forward battle against the Roosters will be immense – especially between old rivals Jared Warea-Hargreaves and Sam Thaiday – the halves contest will be just as significant. Ben Hunt has been playing well over the last few weeks, but the pressure has been on Anthony Milford, and he hasn’t really responded. In contrast, how will Mitchell Pearce and Luke Keary back up after a first loss together?
The Roosters saw their four-game unbeaten start to the season snapped last week during a 18-12 loss to the resurgent Manly Sea Eagles as Dylan Walkers scored the match-winning try in the final few minutes.
It’s not a bad loss for the Roosters, but it’s not what they wanted heading into another tough away clash with the Broncos. All of a sudden two straight losses could transpire and their confidence may take a hit.
These two sides have split their last six meetings at three wins apiece, but the Broncos have won the last three at Suncorp Stadium. Both sides are playing well, so home advantage could prove the difference again. Broncos to win a tight one.
