Sydney Roosters Form

The injury-hit Roosters came through another test last week, getting the better of the North Queensland Cowboys 30-16 in Magic Round in Brisbane.

It was a welcome victory following a 31-18 defeat against the Parramatta Eels in Round 9.

The Roosters have won three of the last four with comprehensive wins over St George Illawarra Dragons and Newcastle Knights despite a crippling injury list.

Sydney Roosters Team News 

The Roosters are unchanged from last week's win. 

Fletcher Baker comes into the reserves in place of Tupuka-Ke Hau Tapuha in the only change to the extended squad.

Brisbane Broncos Form

The Broncos suffered an eighth defeat of the season when thumped 50-6 by the Manly Sea Eagles at Suncorp Stadium last weekend.

Brisbane failed to make the most of playing an away game on their home patch in Magic Round as they were brushed aside in a one-side game.

There had been some optimism amongst Broncos fans after a 36-28 win over Gold Coast Titans and agonising 19-18 defeat to North Queensland Cowboys in the previous two games.

Brisbane Broncos Team News

The Broncos have lost Jordan Riki to suspension and Kevin Walters makes a number of changes to the Brisbane side.

Anthony Milford is dropped along with Corey Oates, while Danny Levi has moved from the interchange bench into the reserves.

In come Keenan Palasia for the suspended Riki, David Mead for Oates and debutant Kobe Hetherington, who starts from the interchange.

Dale Copley starts in the centres after Herbie Farnworth picked up a hamstring strain.

Albert Kelly also makes his return to the NRL from the Super League as the new Broncos five-eighth in place of Milford.
