It’s been a rough season for the defending champions, and now they find themselves in a must-win position half way through the season.
Brisbane’s only win came in week two over the currently-winless Western Sydney Rams, and they have not looked good since.
City will be forced to play without scrumhalf Nick Frisby, who is on Wallabies duty, but they will have Michael Gunn back, who missed last week’s game due to illness. Adam Korczyk also finds his way back into the squad, as he returns from a knee injury.
The Rays are coming off their first loss of the season, going down to table leaders New South Wales Country Eagles by 20-points.
Unlike the Country Eagles, before that loss the Rays had times where they seemed uneasy in defence, particularly against Queensland Country in round three.
The Rays will welcome Jack Dempsey back into the squad, but will be without Nick Palmer who will miss out due to a hamstring tear.
The last time these two sides played was in the 2015 season. It was a much better year for Brisbane City, as they took the 55 – 29 win at home.
This is a must-win game for Brisbane City, and it is a very winnable game as well. Expect them to get the job done, but don’t expect it to be pretty.
