Thursday 3rd September, 7:50 PM, NRL Round 17, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Brisbane Broncos versus Penrith Panthers NRL Match Fixture

If you’ve ever seen two more contrasting teams than Brisbane and Penrith right now, please write to us. The Broncos are just one loss away from equalling their longest consecutive losing streak of eight matches. Penrith, meanwhile, have won their last 11 games, setting a new club record to sit very pretty indeed at the top of the ladder.

For Brisbane, an average losing margin of just over 27 points, just three wins in 16 games, the most points conceded in the league as well as the exit of Anthony Seibold, have confirmed this season as the most embarrassing in their history.
