Sydney Roosters v Brisbane Broncos
An annual clash that always carries a State Of Origin feel and is one of the most anticipated matches in the NRL home and away season.
The Sydney Roosters v Brisbane Broncos matches have spurred an incredible rivalry over the years and this year will be no different with every team in 2019 out to get the tri-colours who stand as reigning premiers.
The Broncos have a new coach in Anthony Siebold and a rock solid roster heading south with a plan to unseat the Roosters.
Siebold had been at the helm of the Rabbitohs for the last two seasons and is well versed in what it takes to beat the Roosters on their home turf.
The Broncos come to town boasting names like Boyd, Gillett, Milford, Bird and Roberts and the men from the eastern suburbs will be ready for another intense installment.
Cooper Cronk, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and new recruit Angus Crichton are at the peak of their powers and will be itching to write another chapter in this great rivalry.
The Sydney Cricket Ground will play host under light's to the Thursday night affair and a big crowd is expected.
