Roosters ready to rumble in NRL clash against Broncos

ROOSTERS second-rower Luke O'Donnell knows his side can take a leaf out of the toughness the Broncos showed in their 22-6 win over the Dragons last Friday night.

Brisbane will travel to Allianz Stadium to take on the Sydney team this Saturday night.

"Defensively, you can always do a bit better," O'Donnell said yesterday, following his team's 16-14 win over the New Zealand side.

"They (the Warriors) might have got the better of us in the second half."

New recruit O'Donnell had a poor record at the judiciary before leaving to join Huddersfield in England.

"I just want to steer clear (of that)," he said.
