Sydney Roosters vs Canberra Raiders Preview
These two sides have played out some absolute classics in recent years and it would not be surprising if we’re treated to another on Saturday.
Fresh from a controversial loss to the Broncos last week, a win could prove crucial for the Roosters with the Eels and the Rabbitohs squaring off only a few hours earlier.
Likewise, the Raiders could also move a step closer to rejoining the eight after suffering another thrashing at the hands of the Storm last week at home.
No more than eight points has separated these two sides in their last nine meetings, but there is a decent chance this one gets a little out of hand based on Canberra’s long list of injuries.
While Jarrod Croker has reportedly recovered well from his shoulder injury, the captain still remains on the sidelines for the next few weeks alongside Elliott Whitehead, Jack Wighton, and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad.
Also working in the Roosters’ favour here is their outstanding record on the back of a loss.
Sydney has played to a 6-3 record at the line in this situation, and with the Raiders still struggling to play defence in the second half, they might just add to that record this week.
