Roosters Key Points | Anzac Day

Let's discuss all the key Roosters talking points following the traditional Anzac Day clash against the St George Illawarra Dragons.


While the Roosters didn't get the result on Wednesday, there's no denying that the atmosphere at Allianz Stadium was as electric as ever on such a special day.

The fans turned out in record numbers to enjoy the footy and pay their respects.

Even during the Anzac Ceremony, all 41,142 fans in attendance were paying complete attention.

To top it off, you would have been able to hear a pin drop during an incredibly respectful moment of silence.


There were signs of potential yet again on the field in Round 8, but the attack is just not there yet for the Tricolours.

Though there were moments of brilliance that included a flashy four-pointer set up by Luke Keary, there were a number of opportunites that were not capitalised on.

It takes time for new look sides to start clicking and that's bound to happen sooner than later.


While the attack continues to develop in 2018, Latrell Mitchell remains as a lethal weapon for his team.

He's scored three tries in the last three games and five out of the last six as he continues to develop into one of the truly dangerous centres in the NRL.

As the team continues to gel and get better together, there's no doubt that Mitchell will look to follow suit in what's been an impressive third season so far.


There was plenty of strike power on the bench on Anzac Day, including the likes of Jared Waerea-Hargreaves and Siosiua Taukeiaho.

The interchange forwards were outstanding coming from the bench and it showed in the metres run and overall workload from the pair respectively.

Jared Waerea-Hargreaves had his season best 66 post contact metres, while Siosiua Taukeiaho looked dangerous just about every time he ran the ball up with speed.

Another solid outing from Victor Radley will no doubt have the coaches turning heads going into the middle section of the season.
