Saturday 5th September, 10:35, NRL Round 17, GIO Stadium, Canberra, Canberra Raiders versus Sydney Roosters NRL Match Fixture

Though the Roosters sit above Canberra in the ladder on points difference, the Raiders are actually in better form. Six wins in their last seven as opposed to Sydney’s five wins in their last seven just about gives the Raiders the edge going into this one. But, the disastrous first-half showing against Canterbury last week cannot be repeated against a Sydney side that thrashed Brisbane 58-12.
