This intriguing match up between the second placed Roosters against the third placed Broncos will kick-off the first week of the finals in 2017. The positions which both teams finished the regular season has seen them earn the right to a double chance in the event of a loss in this game.
An incentive of this match for the victors is a spot in the preliminary finals in a fortnight’s time, thereby earning the week off. Whilst the loser of this match will not be eliminated (having finished in the top four) but will have another opportunity next week against the winner of the elimination final between the Sea Eagles and Panthers.
The Roosters make a return to the finals, having missed them altogether last season. Their last match saw them scrape home 20-16, courtesy of two late converted tries against a determined Titans side who had nothing to play for except a strong finish to an underwhelming season. However, this was all that was required to finish in the top two, as their opponents had unwillingly assisted a fortnight ago, courtesy of their 52-34 loss to the Eels.
On the other hand, the Broncos had returned to their victorious habits, by returning to the sunshine state capital, courtesy of a 20-10 victory over their Queensland rivals, the Cowboys. That match had marked a strong defensive turnaround, in which they went from conceding a half-century a fortnight ago to conceding only 10 points last week.
