Saturday, 12th of September, 7:35 PM, NRL Round 16, Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney, Sydney Roosters versus Newcastle Knights NRL Match Fixture

Last week’s grand final rematch saw the Roosters defeat the Raiders in a tough game, while the Knights returned to form and hammered the Sharks. Both these sides will be playing finals football this year with the Roosters sitting in 4th spot, and the Knights in 7th. The defending premiers are looking to consolidate a top-four finish, whilst the Knights still have a chance of jumping to the top half of the final eight and must win this game to have a chance of that happening.
