Sydney Roosters vs Newcastle Knights Preview
The Roosters and the Knights headline Super Saturday, but like the odds suggest, this one could be a little one sided.
Kalyn Ponga is set to be rested with a broken nose, which has left the Roosters as the heavy favourites in the market shooting for four wins in a row.
The Roosters were enormous last week in their Grand Final rematch win over the Raiders, a performance the defending champs are likely to repeat if captain Jake Friend returns to the side this week.
Sydney has the wood over the Knights winning seven of their last eight meetings and they are almost impossible to tip against with the SCG advantage.
James Tedesco has looked unstoppable in the last two weeks, and with the Knights missing several of their top stars, this one really isn’t worth overthinking.
