The Sydney Roosters are set for their second match up of the season with the Brisbane Broncos when they head to town on Friday night for an interstate battle at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
While the head-to-head between these two sides appears to be in favour of the Brisbane Broncos, recent seasons would suggest a fairly back-and-forth swing between winners.
The last time the two sides met though, the Roosters posted their biggest win ever over the Broncos in what was the worst loss on their club's history.
They'll field a line-up that includues Sean O'Sullivan at the five-eighth position, who made his NRL debut for the Roosters back in 2018.
Let's take a look at the numbers, news and figures ahead of Friday's clash.
