Roosters bank on experience to win NRL grand final
October 5, 2019 7:57 am
It’s no secret the Raiders are underdogs heading into tomorrow’s NRL grand finale.
With the Roosters having won it all last year and Canberra not having so much as reached a premiership decider since 1994, it’s no surprise the numbers certainly favour the reigning champs but it’s not all doom for the Green Machine.
The Roosters have 13 players backing up from last year’s grand final.
Five players surviving from 2013 and three from 2010, while Cooper Cronk has played in seven previous grand finals with Melbourne and Brett Morris one with the Dragons.
While Joey Leilua is the only Raiders player with grand final experience.
The Raiders have lost their past four games against the Roosters in Sydney.
The two will meet at 8.30pm tomorrow at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium.
