Brisbane Broncos vs Sydney Roosters, Round 9 2024 - Expert Prediction

The Sydney Roosters have had a disjointed start to their season with a difficult schedule which has blown the line out in this match against Brisbane. Sydney are a real shot to win this game and will cover easily with a 7.5-point start.

The Roosters have already beaten Brisbane and we can expect that this match will be another tussle for territory between two of the hardest running teams in the business. The low-scoring nature of this game will keep it close, that is why the Under 40.5-point Game Total will hit along with the underdog to cover. 

Reece Walsh has been sniffing around all season and pops up at the opportune moments, so I will be on the Broncs fullback to score each week until he falls into a drought, if he ever does.

  • The Roosters have won their last 3 matches against Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium. 
  • The Roosters concede the least amount of linebreaks than any team in the NRL, allowing their opposition to break their line just 3.6 times per game.
  • 4 of the past 6 games between the Broncos and the Roosters have hit the Under on the Game Total.
  • Reece Walsh has scored 8 tries in 6 appearances this season.

Head to Head 

The Roosters and the Broncos opened the season famously in Vegas at Allegiant Stadium with Sydney manifesting the hype and turning it into a 20-10 victory over last season’s grand finalists.

Easts have had the edge over Brisbane in recent history, the pair did split the games last season, however, the Roosters have won 4 of the last 5 games and even lead the head to head record with 7 wins from the past 10 matches.

There is no denying that Brisbane have looked the goods over the past 3 weeks, with or without their best 17 on the park. The Broncos have had to overcome plenty of injury disruption to get their five wins this season but will now fill their strongest starting side since the beginning of the season.

The form and flair of their flashy fullback Reece Walsh has definitely been one of the Broncos biggest strengths this season, with the Nerang Rooster tied first in the NRL with 8 tries despite only playing 6 games. He is also averaging one linebreak a game and just under 3 tackle breaks.

Ezra Mam and Selwyn Cobbo both return from injury after missing last week’s game. Jock Madden moves out of the side and so does Corey Oates. 

Jesse Arthurs will move back to the wing with Cobbo slotting in at centre.

The Roosters have been playing better than their record may suggest as their 50% win status does not really do them justice. Two of their losses have come in one-score games against Penrith and Melbourne, while the match against Canterbury was a rubbish wet-weather game filled with ill-discipline and the defeat against Manly is inexcusable any day of the week. I’m not making excuses, it has just been a peculiar start to the year. 

They certainly got it all right against St. George on Anzac day with the return of Sammy Walker lifting the Roosters to a 60-18 win. The Sydney halfback was involved in everything in his return from concussion, scoring a try, setting up two, creating a linebreak and kicked 10 from 10 goals.

Daniel Tupou comes back in, recovering from a knee injury  In a straight swap for another veteran Michael Jennings who will miss this week with injury.  Victor Radley is carrying a hamstring injury and has been named in the reserves and could be a late inclusion. 

Joseph-Aukuso Suaalii moves back into the centres after covering injuries on the wing over the past few weeks.
