The Brisbane Broncos are depleted by injuries and suspensions . No David Fifita (injured), no Alex Glenn (injured), no Kotoni Staggs (suspended), and their first choice hooker is also injured.

So the Sydney Roosters, who could be at full strength (if their ace prop Siosua Taukeiaho plays) should win comfortably.

Given their respective performances last week, this could be a one-sided victory for the Roosters. The Broncos have a lot of improving to do.

Yep, could be a landslide but when your backs are against the wall?

Late reports are that James Tedesco will not play because he woke up with a temperature!

If James Tedesco has Covid 19 then the Roosters must go into quarantine for 14 days and the NRL competition is probably finished. Let's hope that Tedesco does not have Covid 19.

The reshuffle will see either (1) Joseph Manu go to full back and Brett Morris to Manu's centre spot, while reserve Ryan Hall gets his chance on the wing, or (2) Brett Morris goes from wing to full back and Ryan Hall goes to the wing.

Even Ryan Hall might score in this one ?

He may seeing it’s his first start in a long time.

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

Seeing the downside of six-again here. A real towelling.

How many six again calls have there been in this game so far? This would be a towelling six again or not.

Not as big a towelling. This is a training run.

Just checked the stats. In the first 40 minutes the Roosters have been awarded two set restarts. Yes, this is a factor but in the grand scheme of this game it is a long way down the list on key factors.

Edit. Although I do accept that the threat of the set restarts and the faster ruck would suit a team like the Roosters in this form.

I still think if this game were played a month ago before the reset law with these two teams in this form the scoreline would be similar.

I love the NRL but there’s way too many blowout scores these days.

It was always deemed a competitive comp but I truly believe the Super League is overall more competitive at the moment.

Ryan Hall looks like he's never played in this team before. outside of a few hit ups and a missed tackle he's had no involvement.

Everything goes down the Roosters left edge, of if it does come to the right it stops at Crighton or Manu. He needs to leave the Roosters.

As someone who wants to see the English lads do well, it is frustrating.  Tupou gets on the end of slick passing movements while Hall doesn't get a sniff of a chance.

What he does get to do he does well... carrying the ball in particular. And he certainly can't be blamed for the players inside him not creating try scoring opportunities.

Agree, me too, i find it so frustrating for him. My internet has been awful today so haven't been able to watch the whole game uninterupted, but i don't think he's received a pass while on the wing.

He's better than this. He should be looking to try and get out on loan to another NRL club if possible, if not, i firmly believe he'll be back in SL by the time the 2020 season restarts. Possibly with Watkins at Toronto.

19/24 (79%) games before the start of this round of games have ended with the winning margin of 18 or less. 

In comparison it’s 24/36 (66%) in Super League this year that has seen games ended with a winning margin of 18 or less.

I was in a meeting from 11am 'til about 5 minutes ago, so had the match on TV, but muted.

59:0 to the Roosters, and the Broncos lucky to get nil.

People bagging the Roosters for not passing to Ryan Hall when they’ve just put 59 on a side. My word. 

It did get a bit frustrating to watch as far as Hall's involvement was concerned, but if the players see a chance without passing to the wing, they have to take it, and you can't argue with the scoreline.
