20th minute

Broncos veteran Corey Oates found his side for a vital try after good leading work from Ezra Mumm and Kurt Capewell.

15th minute

This time it was Luke Curry’s turn to set up a roster experiment. Keary’s short ball sent Angus Crichton wide to extend the lead.

7th minute

Nat Butcher scored three minutes later after a Sam Walker header. Lukanda managed to get the ball on the ground before crossing the dead ball line.

4th minute

Paul Momirowski scored the first try of the night thanks to James Tedesco’s “magic”, but star lock Victor Radley was just as important.

Radley took a pass from scrum-half Sam Verrills before Tedesco broke through and beat Momirovski.

“Magic from James Tedesco, he’s in stellar form. But just look at what Victor Radley can do, there are very few forwards who can do that – pressure them down to the ground[to Momirovski’s pass],” Fox League analyst Michael Ennis said.

Plenty are on the line when the Roosters host the Broncos at the SCG on Thursday night, with the former looking to hang on to the top eight and the latter looking to link up with the top four.

The Roosters sit eighth after three straight wins but a loss to the Broncos could see them drop out of the top eight if the Raiders beat a depleted Panthers outfit on Saturday.

On the other side of the coin, the Broncos look set to return to the finals and have their sights set on a place in the final four – but last week’s shock loss to the Tigers saw them drop to fifth place.

Both coaches have been forced to make key changes to their sides, with Roosters duo Lindsay Collins (concussion) and Egan Butcher (suspension) plus Broncos star Patrick Carrigan suspended for four weeks due to a hip drop.

Trent Robinson promoted Matt Lodge to his starting side and brought Terrell May and Ben Thomas to the bench.

Meanwhile, Rhys Kennedy joins the bench with Kevin Walters replacing Carrigan with Kobe Hetherington.

Other key changes for the Broncos include starting star Selwyn Cobo returning on the wing from a concussion in Game Three, Jake Turpin returning in the 17th at the expense of Corey Pikes and Billy Walters dropping back to start at quarterback. A bench.
