2019 NRL PREMIERS

The additions of tearaway second rower Angus Crichton and veteran winger Brett Morris were welcomed as the Roosters began the year in strong form, taking out their second consecutive World Club Challenge and winning eight of the opening nine rounds.

Injuries to captains Jake Friend and Boyd Cordner contributed to a mid-season slump, but the side recovered to record a seven-match winning streak heading into the final round.

A loss to arch-rivals South Sydney in Round 25 mattered little, especially with several players rested as a dominant 30-6 win the following week against the Rabbitohs saw the side earn a well-deserved week off.

Roosters Review 2019 Grand Final

One of the most tightly fought Preliminary Finals at the hallowed Sydney Cricket Ground followed as the Tricolours defeated the Melbourne Storm in the 2018 Grand Final rematch, as they progressed to their second consecutive decider, becoming the first Easts side to do so since 2003-2004.

The Roosters then faced the Canberra Raiders in the decider, with the Red, White and Blue triumphing 14-8 in a dramatic contest which saw Dally M Medallist James Tedesco score the match-winning try to clinch the Club’s 15th Premiership, becoming the first side to go back-to-back in a united competition in over a quarter of a century.
