How to watch Brisbane Broncos vs Canterbury Bulldogs NRL live and match preview

Posted: 27 March 2021 9:43 am

The Broncos are desperate to break a 13-match NRL losing streak when they take on fellow cellar dwellers Canterbury.

SUMMARY: Broncos vs Bulldogs is exclusive to Fox League. If you're an existing Foxtel customer you're all set, otherwise your best option is to watch on Kayo Sports. You can watch using this 14-day free trial.

The last time the hapless Broncos tasted victory was way back in July last year when they beat the Bulldogs. Under their new coach Trent Barrett, the Bulldogs are also winless after two rounds.

There's a real possibility here that the loser of the Broncos and Bulldogs start the season 0-5. The next two games for both clubs are premiership fancies South Sydney and Melbourne in alternative weeks. After those two games the Broncos then also have the Panthers and Eels, could they go winless over seven rounds?

Broncos vs Bulldogs match preview

The Broncos have a new coach this year in Kevin Walters, who has supposedly lifted their attitude and commitment levels. Yet Brisbane still leaked 28 points in their derby loss to the Titans last week.

Things haven't been much better for the Dogs who failed to score a point in their last-start defeat to Penrith and have tasted victory just once in their past 11 matches.

So something has to give at Suncorp Stadium.

Brisbane Broncos vs Canterbury Bulldogs: Last 5 meetings

This is not an easy game to pick considering the poor form lines of the teams. The Bulldogs will be missing backrower Raymond Faitala-Mariner (broken foot) and suspended winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak.

For the Queenslanders, we wouldn't be surprised if Walters axes under-performing halfback Brodie Croft and gives Tom Dearden a crack. The Broncos halves have left a lot to be desired over the opening games.

Croft isn't the only Bronco under pressure to retain his spot in the side. For that reason along with the next run of games Brisbane have we'll lean towards the home-town Broncos by 10 points.
