Preview

Arguably the game of the round takes place on Saturday night the Roosters and the Broncos, separated by just a points differential of 14 on the ladder, go head to head.

The Roosters were very impressive last week without their Origin stars and nearly pulled off an upset against Canberra while the Broncos went down gallantly against the Warriors.

Mitchell Pearce and Luke Keary coming up against Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt makes for must-see viewing as the two Origin halves will clash for the second time in four days.

Andrew McCullough has been named following a concussion a fortnight ago, while all 11 of the team’s Origin representatives have also been named to back up.

Sydney are favourites with the bookies despite getting thumped against the Broncos at Suncorp in Round 6. On that occasion, the Broncos ran in five first half tries, with their big men carrying the brunt of the work by running straight through the middle of the Roosters pack.

The tri-colours have been a much-improved side since then, however, the Broncos had won six in a row prior to the last week and will be looking to regain that form.

This certainly isn’t an easy one to pick, but we’ll back Wayne Bennett’s men to reclaim that purple patch of form.

  1. Cummings has to be banned from reffing Roosters games from now on!

    He is as biased as a one eyed broncos supporter!
    Shocking calls.
