Sydney Roosters vs Canberra Raiders Preview
Things are about to get a whole lot tougher for the Raiders on Thursday as they narrowly cling to a spot inside the top eight.
Canberra’s injury concerns have grown even larger ahead of this week’s Grand Final rematch with Josh Hodgson and Bailey Simonsson suffering season-ending injuries in the loss to the Storm.
Sydney, meanwhile, overcame an early scare against the Cowboys to lay down a 42-16 beating up in North Queensland.
The Roosters are heavy favourites in the market with Brett Morris returning from a groin injury, while Jordan Rapana is set to replace Simonsson on the wing.
Morris returning likely leaves last week’s top performer Matt Ikuvalu as the odd man out, but it does provide the Roosters with an almost full-strength side against a battered and bruised Canberra outfit.
The Roosters do need to be wary of the Raiders though.
Canberra has typically responded well to previous defeats over the last 12 months playing to a 6-1 record head-to-head and a 4-1-2 record at the line.
It’s tough to take the Raiders outright, but don’t be surprised if Ricky Stuart’s team at least puts up a fight on Thursday night.
