Thursday, June 4, 7.50 PM, Round 4, Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Broncos take on Sydney Roosters NRL Match Preview
After a solid start to the year, the Broncos met there match against the Eels in Round 3 and were shown that there is always room for improvement as they finished the game on the end of a 34-6 loss, this time around they have a chance to redeem their loss by conquering the Roosters, not an easy challenge as the Roosters found the form people were beginning to question destroying the Rabbitohs 28-12, with the Broncos adding a few positional changes to strengthen the side this quest shapes itself with uncertainty but certainly entertaining.

The last time these two teams met the Brisbane Broncos at home beat the Sydney Roosters 15-10, previously, in earlier years the Broncos have had the edge on the Roosters winning 60% of the meetings looking at the last ten games played between them, the Broncos have also won the last three out of four most recent meetings between the two sides, we don’t think history will play its part in this match as the Roosters will be keen to continue there dominance in the competition and prove that last weeks win wasn’t a one-off.
Sydney Roosters for the win.
