Huge clash this Saturday night for our Holden Cup boys, and we suggest you get out to Allianz Stadium early on Saturday as the second placed Sydney Roosters take on the table topping Canberra Raiders.

It would be fair to say these two sides have been the best all year to date, and there has been plenty of anticipation building up to this one.

The Raiders are on a four game win streak and have only lost four games all season. Unsurprisingly the visitors have the best for and against in the competition but interestingly don't lead the individual stats in either attack or defence with the Tricolours having conceded slightly fewer points.

The young Tricolours come in to the game having won eight of their past ten matches, the latest an impressive one try victory over the third placed Panthers last Friday night.

Despite a late comeback the first time these two sides met, the Roosters fell to the Raiders 35-26 in Round five and will no doubt be looking to prove they can topple the competition leaders heading in to the finals series.

Coach Paul Green has made just one change to the side that last weekend beat the Panthers on Friday night with Nene Macdonald return from injury forcing Kurt Capewell to shift to the wing with Brendan Elliot pushing in to the centres and Willis Meehan moving to the bench in place of Braden Uele.
