Match Preview:
What a massive game we have here! Despite being ok opposite ends of the top 8, I’ve got this game as one of the biggest games of 2018, and boy am I pumped!
 
The Sydney Roosters as we all know are in a massive battle. With South Sydney yet to play, the Roosters have the opportunity to put the early pressure on a top spot rival. The Broncos are an unbelievably inconsistent team, and after last weeks performance by the Roosters, they’ll need to step up and be ready for a high intensity Broncos side to run out. With the Minor Premiership on the line as was as a home semi final, I expect a much different Roosters side than last week.
 
The Broncos also have a lot to play for, and it’s a compliment to how amazingly tight the NRL is. A win by the Broncos and they are well and truly in the top 4 race and a good run in for a second chance spot and a second week bye. However a loss by the Broncos and it puts them in danger of missing finals all together. Although the Tigers require the Broncos to lose both their remaining games, and by a good margin too, we know what this Roosters team can do, and the Broncos need to be ready for a Roosters team to come out with plenty of points in hand. The Broncos could go home cheering, or go home nervous, let’s see.
 
Prediction: Roosters by 24.
Yep. I believe the Roosters will run riot without a second thought. At home, with a top 8 spot on the line, the Roosters will put the sword to the Broncos and well and truly tally them up. My Tigers rely on it.
 
Blake.
