Only one of the last six meetings between these sides have been decided by 13 or more points and we can expect another tight tussle when the Roosters and Broncos collide on Saturday night.
Both sides are set to play finals football in just over two week’s time, although the Broncos still aren’t ensured of a top eight spot after the Tigers beat Manly on Thursday night.
Brisbane are in seventh spot on the ladder and are on equal points with the Warriors, two points ahead of the Tigers. It would take the Warriors winning their last two games and the Tigers winning their final game and the Broncos losing both of their fixtures for them to miss out.
With a game against Manly next week, it seems likely the Broncos will make it through, but they won’t want to leave anything to chance and will be determined to make a statement against the Roosters.
The Broncos come into this showdown in good form after putting 38 points past the third-placed Rabbitohs last week, while the Roosters relinquished top spot after falling 14-12 to the Raiders.
The Roosters also beat Souths two weeks ago, but that match seemingly left them flat for their visit to the nation’s capital in Round 23, and it showed as they failed to break through Canberra’s vulnerable defence.
Trent Robinson will demand an immediate response two weeks out from the finals, so you can expect a much-improved performance by the Tri-Colours in this clash.
As I mentioned, this should be a close contest with the Broncos aiming to continue their winning momentum and the Roosters keen for a strong response from last week. The Roosters remain the best defensive team in the competition and I’m going to lean with them in a tight one.
Luke Keary (knee) is back at five-eighth for the Roosters as Ryan Matterson drops to the bench and Sean O’Sullivan drops out.
The Broncos have named Kotoni Staggs to replace Patrick Mago on the bench and Matt Lodge to start for Joe Ofahengaue.
