Friday, August 21, 7.55 PM, Round 15, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Brisbane Broncos take on St George Illawarra Dragons NRL Match Fixture
Meanwhile back in Suncorp the Broncos invite the fire breathing dragons to a dual of pride and the winner sustains their dignity although! there may still be a tiny smidge of hope for the Dragons if they win this one, stranger things have happened in rugby league, for Brisbane Anthony Milford and Kahu return adding a little more experience than what they had the previous week, the dragons should be too dominant for the Broncos especially if they’re adapting well to the new coaching changes but the Broncos will test them for the first forty minutes.
