FourFourSeconds ago, Brisbane were the hottest team in the country and the only team with a positive score.
Today, they are down to seventh, with a game in hand on the Saints and in the play-offs for the third time in four years.
This week, the Saints took on a Sydney team that was still searching for its identity.
Brisbane’s win over the Sydney Roosters gave them a three-point cushion on top of their six-point lead with eight games to play.
They also had an early chance to add to their lead, but a last-gasp goal from Josh Dugan was saved by the diving Luke Brooks, and a penalty kick by Luke Dahlhaus was parried by James Roberts.
Sydney had chances, but were unable to find the net.
Their best chance of the half came from an Anthony Milford pass, and after a slow start, the forwards crossed the ball for James Roberts to score his second goal of the game.
The Roosthers had a late chance, but failed to convert.
Saints have only scored twice this season.
The match was delayed twice, due to weather and safety concerns, and was a big hit on social media.
Brisco’s win comes just a week after they took a game-winning penalty from Jamie Soward.
St Pete Stadium has seen an average of less than 3,000 fans in the past five seasons.
Queensland Cup, Round 4, Sunday, March 10The Saints are now in third spot, three points behind the Brisbane Broncos and three points above the Sydney Swans, who have the next two matches.
