Not far away from a start at Suncorp, the teams will be on the park shortly. It would be remiss of us not to mention the fantastic career of young Jharal Yow Yeh, which was sadly cut short this week when he was forced to retire. The Broncos have done an amazing job of honouring the young bloke here tonight, with him completing a lap of honour.

The undefeated Broncos face the reigning premiers who bounced back to form emphatically last week. Kickoff is 7:40pm QLD time, that's 8:40pm for those of you in the southern states.
TEAM CHANGES see the Broncos lose Ben Hannant after a training injury, with Martin Kennedy starting in the forwards for him. Corey Oates fills the gap on the bench. Meanwhile, the Roosters are 1-17, which means Sio Siua Taukeiaho drops off a five-man bench.
