It may be the last, but it’s still our derby

This Saturday's Macca's Local Derby between the Titans and Broncos happens to be the last with only two NRL teams in South East Queensland.

With 2023 seeing the arrival of the Dolphins entering as the newest franchise to the Telstra Premiership, it's no surprise they hope to spark a new rivalry, taking over the once one-team town that is currently Brisbane.

But despite there being plenty of belief the new kids on the block may take away the traditional M1 rivalry between the two sunshine state counterparts, nothing is set to change despite their emergence next season. 

From the first contest played in Round 5, 2007 to this weekend, all 32 clashes played in the past have cemented a place in history and helped continue to fuel the fire of the immense feud between big and little brother.

On the verge of the 33rd meeting of the duo, the Titans have won 10 clashes to the Broncos' 22 - although, the Gold Coast has won three of the past five meetings between the duo - most recently the corresponding fixture at Cbus Super Stadium in 2021, where David Fifita scored a scintillating double to help the Titans to a 28-16 triumph.

The battle has stood the test of time as the longest South East Queensland NRL rivalry since the Crushers exited in 1997, and will exist for many years to come despite the new contest on the calendar next year.

From decorating the Wally Lewis statue in sky blue and gold after the first victory at Suncorp in 2007 to Matt 'Sideshow Bob' Petersen's hat-trick a year later and even Phil Sami's triple years later in 2018... there has been plenty of memories from the iconic derby.

It's a rivalry that will continue to live on despite the welcomed emergence of the Dolphins and as anticipation builds for this exciting historic clash - the last Queensland derby before a new team from the sunshine state enters the fray, a big crowd is expected in at Cbus Super Stadium for the once-a-year clash.

Will you be part of history as the Titans aim to upset the Broncos this Saturday night?
