  The Northern Brisbane Rollers Brawl Stars play host to one of Victoria’s toughest derby teams, the Geelong Bloody Marys, on Saturday 16 October 2010.

It’s been almost a year since the Northern Brisbane Rollers (NBR) played their first interstate bout. At the ‘Skate of Emergency’ double-header in Adelaide on 27 September 2009 NBR lost to the Adelady Tornadoes by a 40-point margin.
