The Sydney Roosters are set for a blockbuster match-up on Saturday night when they take on the Canberra Raiders on their home turf in Round 17.
There's no disguising the recent history between these two sides, with all three of their 2019 matches coming down to the final possession and their one meeting of 2020 going in favour of the Raiders.
Sitting in fourth and fifth place respectively, there's plenty at stake when the two sides meet at GIO Stadium with a spot in the top four on the line.
In the same vein, both sides are running hot winning five of their last six matches since the last time they met.
The Roosters will enjoy some welcomed returns to the line-up in Round 17, with plenty of excitement brewing around the return of Sonny Bill Williams for the first time since 2014.
