Syndey, the reigning champs, are the overwhelming favourites to lift the Provan-Summons Trophy.

When the two sides met earlier in the season, the Roosters beat the Raiders 22-18.

Moreover, the Roosters finished the season in second, while the Raiders were fourth.

So can Canberra cause a shock in the final? Many have been surprised that the Raiders are in their first final in 25-years, so why not!

NRL GRAND FINAL TALE OF THE TAPE

Head to Head W-L: Roosters 34 – Raiders 28

Last clash: Round 21, 2019 – Roosters 22 def. Raiders 18 at GIO Stadium

NRL Ladder finish: Roosters seconds, Raiders fourth

Analysis:

The Roosters are the defending premiers and the bookmakers’ favourites. They boast the reigning Dally M medallist in James Tedesco, retiring champion halfback Cooper Cronk, and Kangaroos and NSW skipper Boyd Cordner. There are question marks surrounding the fitness of co-captain Jake Friend, who has played just five games this season but was named in the 21-man squad. The Roosters are aiming to become the first team since Brisbane in 1992-93 to claim back-to-back titles.

The Raiders are the surprise packets and the sentimental favourites. Their biggest names are barnstorming front-rower Josh Papalii, cunning hooker Josh Hodgson, and English countryman John Bateman. Hodgson and Bateman have missed training sessions due to illness, while Joey Leilua will take a dodgy calf into the game. The Raiders are in their first decider in 25 years.

WHERE THE GAME WILL BE WON

It’s the slick attacking machine that is the Roosters against the defensively gritty stonewall that is the Raiders, and whoever can impose their style for the longest is likely to come out on top.

KEY MATCH-UPS

Fullback – James Tedesco (Roosters) v Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad (Raiders)

The reigning Dally M (NRL), Wally Lewis (State of Origin), Brad Fittler (NSW State of Origin) and Jack Gibson (Sydney Roosters) medallist against a player who hadn’t even signed with his club until February. But while it may be a walkover to Tedesco on paper, Nicoll-Klokstad does top his esteemed counterpart in runs and kick-return metres in his breakout season.

Centre – Latrell Mitchell (Roosters) v Joseph Leilua (Raiders)

Both have overcome adversity this year, Mitchell with his State of Origin axing, and Leilua a neck injury scare. But both arrive as arguably the game-breakers out of their respective backlines. As the league’s leading points-scorer and second-highest try-scorer, Mitchell’s record speaks for itself. Leilua will rely on trademark unpredictability for impact.

Roosters: Grand Final Preview

Hooker – Sam Verrills/Jake Friend (Roosters) v Josh Hodgson (Raiders)

This is still a big selection call for Roosters coach Trent Robinson. Will he punt on his underdone co-captain Friend to run out the full 80 minutes or manufacture a time share between he and impressive rookie Verrills. They come up against the form hooker in Hodgson, who leads the league in one-on-one steals, and is often the crux of the Raiders’ attack.

Prop – Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (Roosters) v Josh Papalii (Raiders)

Waerea-Hargreaves, the leader of the Roosters pack, will be out to make amends for the suspension that forced him to miss the preliminary final. His impact is felt with timely runs and big tackle shots. Papalii has been the league’s best prop this season, and proved it with his man-of-the-match effort in their preliminary final win. Expect big collisions and fireworks early in this heavyweight battle.

Second-row – Boyd Cordner (Roosters) v John Bateman (Raiders)

Inspirational Australia, NSW and Roosters leader Cordner produced arguably his best performance of the year in their preliminary final win and he will be up for the challenge posed by England international Bateman, who has stunned the league with an extraordinary transition to the NRL this year.
