Brisbane Broncos v Sydney Roosters at Suncorp Stadium


Righto, team news. And it’s big tonight.

It was confirmed earlier today Roosters No.1 and reigning Dally M Medal winner James Tedesco woke up with an elevated temperature this morning and was left on the tarmac before the premiers flew to Brisbane on their charter flight. Might have been fun to see him turned away at the gate at Suncorp Stadium with a spike.

“Hello, I’m the world’s best player and I’m here to play football tonight…

“Sorry sir, this says you’re at 37.7 degrees. The thermometer says no.”

Brett Morris goes back to fullback and English international Ryan Hall will come onto the wing. Siua Taukeiaho is a late inclusion for the Roosters in the starting side with Lindsay Collins back to the bench.

Broncos? There’s no Jake Turpin at hooker with 20-year-old Cory Paix to make his NRL hooker at hooker. And just some breaking news coming out of Brisbane…
