It's Halftime at Allianz Stadium and it's the Roosters who lead the Broncos 8-0. The game was dominated by defence early on but has now opened up with some exciting end to end play. The Broncos will be pretty happy going in at only 8-0 down considering the Roosters have blown at least 3 tries in a pulsating first half. Roosters winger Brendan Elliot scored the lone try from slick hands from Maloney and Ferguson.
The first half has been overshadowed by injuries to Roosters half Mitchell Pearce and what looks to be a serious knee injury to front row enforcer Jared Warea-Hargraves who has left the game to get an MRI scan. The Broncos are still well in the match despite not threatening the line in the 1st half.

Stay tuned for a bottler of a 2nd Half! It has lived up to the hype!

Welcome to Allianz Stadium for the final game on Super Saturday and without doubt the game of the round! It's 1 vs 2 and some say this may be the dress rehearsal for the big dance come the first weekend in October. The winner of tonight's match will likely rocket into premiership favouritism.

There are no late changes for the Roosters who are as per programmed through 1-17.

For Brisbane, Lachlan Maranta and Jack Reed are out and replaced by Corey Oates and Dale Copley.

This promises to be the game of the season, so stock up the fridge, grab a cold one and join us for all the action on League Unlimited.
