Round 4 - Suncorp Stadium

Match Overview

A ten-try rampage has seen the Sydney Roosters hand the Brisbane Broncos their biggest ever loss in a 59-0 result played at Suncorp Stadium.

Holding the Broncos to nil for the first time at home, the Roosters flexed their premiership muscles with Brett Morris playing an instrumental role.

Named at fullback following the withdrawal of James Tedesco (fever) prior to kick-off, the 33-year-old speedster bagged the final try of the night, had a hand in two and saved another much to the delight of coach Trent Robinson. 

Wasting little time to assert their dominance, Morris set up tries for his twin brother, Josh, (4th minute) and Joey Manu (9th minute) to give the visitors a 10-0 lead in equal time.

Forcing an error with a terrific hit on Thomas Flegler, Roosters lock Victor Radley (19th minute) was rewarded for his defensive vigour with a four-pointer underneath the posts to end any hope the Broncos had of mounting a comeback.

Making their opponents pay for errors and penalties, Angus Crichton (26th minute) and Kyle Flanagan (32nd minute) added further tries before Luke Keary extended the lead to 29-0 with a drop goal as the siren sounded to hand the Broncos their largest halftime deficit.

Coming out of the sheds intent on making a statement, Luke Keary (44th minute) finished off a terrific break from Isaac Liu to race 50 metres for his first try of the season.

Following a run of penalties centre Jesse Arthars was sent to the sin bin, allowing Lindsay Collins (59th minute) and Crichton (63rd minute) to blow the score out to 47-0.

Further tries to Daniel Tupou (70th minute) and Morris (73rd minute) rounded out proceedings as the Roosters recorded the third-largest win in their 112-year history to finish as 59-0 victors.

In the only negative for the visitors, Victor Radley left the field with an arm injury last in the match.

Next week, the Broncos face the Sea Eagles at Central Coast Stadium on Thursday night, while the Roosters take on the Bulldogs at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

3. Brett Morris

Winding back the clock with a man of the match performance, the stand in fullback showed up his younger rivals from the first to the last minute.

2. Lindsay Collins

Running for 272 metres and bagging a try to boot, the young prop produced his best game in first grade.

1. Luke Keary

Having a hand in two tries and crossing for one of his own, the Roosters' number six was a stand-out for the visitors.
