Friday, 28th of August, 7:55 PM, NRL Round 16, Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney, Sydney Roosters versus Brisbane Broncos Match Fixture
The Roosters returned to form last week with a convincing victory over the Tigers, while an improved Broncos outfit fell just short against the Dragons. The Roosters will be without key playmaker Luke Keary but have Boyd Cordner and Daniel Tupou returning and will be looking to hang on to their top-four spot. The Broncos have had a very tumultuous week with the announcement that head coach Anthony Seibold has left the club and will be trying to get in the headlines for the right reasons and avoid their first-ever wooden spoon.
