How to watch The Dolphins vs Brisbane Broncos NRL live and match preview


New kid on the block The Dolphins will be hoping to claim first bragging rights over the Broncos.

It's only round 4, but the biggest match of the NRL season is already here with Dolphins vs Broncos.

It's the first battle for Brisbane between the Dolphins and Broncos, and couldn't have been scripted any better as it's first vs second on the ladder.

This is no doubt the most anticipated Queensland matchup since the glory days of Cowboys vs Broncos encounters between 2015 - 2018.

The Dolphins vs Broncos is on Friday 24 March at Suncorp Stadium, with kick off at 8pm AEDT (7pm AEST).

Given that tickets to the Dolphins vs Broncos were sold out before teams were announced, your only way to watch the game is by watching on TV or streaming. You can watch Dolphins vs Broncos with Kayo, Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now, Channel 9 or 9Now.

The difference between the subscription and free-to-air services are no ads via Fox League and a higher quality level of HD. You can see a full breakdown in our NRL viewing guide.

Broncos fans would be wise to take up a subscription as their next 3 games following this aren't on Channel 9.

Dolphins vs Broncos match preview

Dolphins' backrower Felise Kaufusi is unable to take part in the match after losing his battle and the judiciary resulting in a controversial suspension.

Jarrod Wallace is back for this week, so they at least don't lose too much experience, however Kaufusi is the better player. Five-eigthth Isaiya Katoa will reportedly miss the game which will see Anthony Milford come into the side for his Dolphins debut.

No doubt the Dolphins have been fantastic to start the year, but I think the Broncos are playing better.

While their victory over the wooden spoon favourites the Dragons last week is easy to overlook, they showed how much strike power they possess with 4 tries in the final 10 minutes.

I've tipped against the Dolphins near every week, and I'm continuing to do so here.

The Dolphins did well to ground out a win against the lowly Knights last week, but struggled for a lot of it.

The loss of Kaufusi hurts and I think the Broncos will put a double digit deficit on the Dolphins putting an end to "Phins up" at least for a week.
