Preview

Sydney Roosters will host the Brisbane Broncos at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night, 7:45pm (AEST). Broncos will be fighting to remain at the top of the ladder as first take on second place. If Roosters win they will equal Broncos with 36 competition points.
The Sydney Roosters will continue to dominate as they left the Parramatta Eels scoreless in the second half, beating them 28-18 despite being down by 10 points at half time. Brendan Elliot makes a return to the side and Latrell Mitchell has been named on the bench. Aubusson had a great game last week and will be hoping he can impress against the Broncos. Good news for the Roosters as Blake Fergusson was found non guilty for an attempted trip on Semi Radradra and Aidan Guerra was also able to escape suspension, after being found non guilty of a shoulder charge.

The Brisbane Broncos will be looking to find good form and build momentum again after beating the Dragons last week, 32-6. Justin Hodges will make a return to the side following his suspension, pushing Copley out of the side. After their impressive defensive performance last week they will be looking to continue it against the Roosters. Matt Gillett has been named as twelveth man and looks good to play after last weeks head clash with teammate Dale Copley.
