Broncos vs Roosters Betting Tips & Match Preview


The Broncos and the Roosters lock horns to kick off round four on Thursday.

The Roosters registered their first win against the Rabbitohs in strong fashion on Friday night while the Broncos disappointing showing on Thursday has them scrambling to keep in touch with the top eight.

Broncos Form & Team News


The Broncos went into last week's game against the Eels as the slight favourites with the bookies but they were blown off the park by Para, conceding six tries while only crossing the line once. The heavy loss has the home side sitting outside finals contention.

Anthony Milford looms as a man who needs to make an impact for his side after being mostly unsighted in last Thursday's 28 point loss.

Jesse Arthars comes in for the suspended Kotoni Staggs at centre with Herbie Farnworth on the wing. Ethan Bullemor will start for Alex Glenn (leg laceration).

The Broncos team for Thursday can be found below:

1. Jamayne Isaako 2. Corey Oates 3. Jesse Arthars 4. Darius Boyd 5. Herbie Farnworth 6. Anthony Milford 7. Brodie Croft 8. Thomas Flegler 9. Jake Turpin 10. Payne Haas 11. Ethan Bullemor 12.

Roosters Form & Team News

 
The reigning premiers bounced back sharply last Friday, smashing the Bunnies by 16 points in a comprehensive display that put the competition on notice. Reigning Dally M Medallist James Tedesco was back to his brilliant best, scoring a try and generating plenty of attacking plays for the Chooks.

The win was the Roosters' first of the year, but if they play up to that standard it is only a matter of time before they find themselves back in the top eight.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson has named an unchanged line up heading into Thursday.

The Roosters team for Thursday can be found below:

1. James Tedesco 2. Daniel Tupou 3. Josh Morris 4. Joseph Manu 5. Brett Morris 6. Luke Keary 7. Kyle Flanagan 8. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves 9. Jake Friend 10. Lindsay Collins 11. Boyd Cordner 12.
