Game day guide: Round 17 v Broncos

The Dragons travel to Brisbane to play the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium as they search for three wins on the trot this Sunday. Here is your Round 16 game day guide.

Sullivan slips into seven

Dragons skipper Ben Hunt will spend the week with the Queensland Origin side, leaving behind the No. 7 jersey to rookie Jayden Sullivan. 

Sullivan has made 10 appearances across his young career but never in his preferred halfback position.

Five-eighth Talatau Amone also gets the chance to partner with Sullivan in the halves for the first time at NRL level since winning the 2019 SG Ball grand final together.

Andrew McCullough will captain the side in Ben Hunt's absence.

Legs eleven

State of Origin and injuries have decimated the Broncos' squad forcing their coach Kevin Walters to make 11 changes from their last start loss to the Cowboys.  

The Broncos are without Kurt Capewell, Selwyn Cobbo, Patrick Carrigan and Thomas Flegler on Maroons Origin duty as well as Te Maire Martin (ribs), Payne Haas (shoulder) and Corey Jensen (calf).

Back-rower Zac Hosking will make his debut while Tesi Niu takes over at fullback, Jordan Pereira comes onto the wing and Keenan Palasia and Ryan James are the new props.

Happy hunting ground

Remember Round 1, 2018? You might recall the Dragons beating the Broncos in the opening match of the season, but it was also the start of a winning streak which still stands to this day.

The Dragons haven't lost to the Broncos since that night which also saw Hunt make his Dragons debut against his former club.

Included in the winning streak was the 2018 qualifying final where the Dragons blitzed the Broncos 48-18. Re-live the match below.

Lomax climbs the ladder

Zac Lomax is set to continue his rapid rise up the Dragons' all-time highest point scorer list and is now within reaching distance of the top five.

After overtaking Nathan Blacklock last week, a week after overtaking Mark Gasnier, Lomax is now only 17 points behind Jason Nightingale and Brett Morris to become the fifth highest point scorer in St George Illawarra history.
