Since 2019 the mighty Roosters have made the Sydney Cricket Ground a fortress, winning 14 of 18 matches at the hallowed turf, and while it was a tough task, we've compiled Five of the Best home victories at the SCG.
ANZAC Day Glory: Round 7 2019 vs St. George Illawarra Dragons
Wearing the famous Tricolour striped jersey, the Roosters took out a famous 20-10 victory at the SCG in the eighteenth rendition of the traditional ANZAC Day clash.
With plenty of passion emanating between the traditional rivals, the Roosters got on the board early through a penalty goal and after a scrappy start from both teams. Easts laid their claim thanks to some acrobatic skills from Daniel Tupou handing the side their first try, and after some shots taken from either side came undone, the Roosters would strike again in a more direct fashion thanks to a barnstorming run from Angus Crichton.
Last Time We Met The Dragons
The Dragons would hit back with two tries of their own and looked to go over for a third until captain Jake Friend would make a desperate try-saving effort on Ben Hunt, keeping the halfback just centimetres out from the line.
Friend's defence would be on show again, with a strong body shot dislodging the ball from fullback Matt Dufty, which saw Sio Siua Taukeiaho score a dazzling individual try to seal the victory.
Rooster Rampage: Finals Week 1 2019 vs South Sydney Rabbitohs
After an arm-wrestle against arch-rivals South Sydney the week before, the Roosters were red-hot when it mattered most in their qualifying final victory in week one of the 2019 finals.
Just two minutes in, the Red, White and Blue were over through Joseph Manu, as the young Kiwi centre took defenders over the line with him. Easts found themselves with two on the board after ten as Mitchell Aubusson took advantage of some quick hands on the right side.
But the left side would have their say as captain Boyd Cordner ran a trademark line to dot down, with Sio Siua Taukeiaho pouncing on a grubber kick in the span of four minutes to extend the lead to 22.
Highlights | Roosters v Rabbitohs
Easts would extend the score with a quarter of the match left as Luke Keary's ball-playing continued to trouble the defence, and while South Sydney managed to score in the shadows of full-time, the SCG was painted Red, White and Blue en route to the Club's 15th Premiership.
Storming Melbourne: Finals Week 3 2019 vs Melbourne Storm
It's always a great occasion to beat the Melbourne Storm, and the 2018 NRL Grand Final rematch was one to remember just a week before the 2019 decider.
In what is always a tense contest between two of the premier sides of the NRL, there was an immediate feeling as the sides came together after the first hit-up with giants Sio Siua Taukeiaho and Nelson Asofa-Solomona finding themselves in the sin-bin.
Easts would take the lead with an early penalty goal, before the acrobatic brilliance of Daniel Tupou saw the winger leap above and take a Luke Keary bomb before offloading to Boyd Cordner to touch down.
With both defences shining through, the Roosters would hold an 8-nil lead through the first half, before Melbourne staked their claim with a four-pointer of their own in the 50th minute.
Highlights | Roosters v Storm
A dubious knock-on call against James Tedesco saw a dazzling aerial try from Joseph Manu disallowed, but the Roosters faithful were on their feet as a Cooper Cronk orchestrated raid ended with Tedesco over the line.
With plenty of defensive brilliance from the Tricolours, including a number of try-saving tackles from their custodian, the Roosters would come away with a 14-6 victory and a place in their second Grand Final in as many years.
Cricket Score at the 'G: Round 16 2020 vs Brisbane Broncos
Having already posted a record 59-nil victory in Brisbane against the hapless Broncos, the relentless Roosters gave no mercy in their return fixture, appropriately putting on another cricket score at the SCG.
Youngster Sitili Tupouniua would kick things off with an early try as he burst through some feeble attempts in defence, and soon after his fellow forward Isaac Liu would take a similar, direct route to the line.
Tupouniua would have a say in his side's third try, with a well-timed offload putting James Tedesco away, while the rangy backrower found himself on the scoresheet again soon after as the Roosters took a 24-6 lead at the break.
Match Highlights | Roosters v Broncos
Despite Brisbane's runaway try closing the gap, the Red, White and Blue continued their golden run in the second stanza as Drew Hutchison and Boyd Cordner combined to put Josh Morris over in the corner, before the experienced centre added some magic of his own to send winger Daniel Tupou in.
A dazzling 50-metre try from backrower Nat Butcher would continue the romp, and with Morris and Tupou getting their doubles in quick succession, the Roosters reached the half-century, with Brett Morris scoring with just seconds to go to cap off a 58-12 demolition.
Aubo's Record: Round 19 2020 vs Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
While much of the media concentrated on an injury sustained by the Sharks, this match will be remembered as the day Mitchell Aubusson etched himself in Roosters folklore to become the most-capped player in the Club's 113-year history.
The milestone man made his mark early on, running a beautiful line from fill-in fullback Joseph Manu to score a try just five minutes into the contest.
Cronulla would reply with a similar try of their own, but Manu's quick hands would see Daniel Tupou wrestle his way over the line for his 101st NRL try at the end of a classy right-hand shift.
Highlights | Roosters v Sharks
A clean break through the defence from Isaac Liu gave Easts their third try of the match, with the lock forward showing plenty of poise to draw in the fullback and put five-eighth Luke Keary away, while Aubusson got his brace soon after as a deft kick from Angus Crichton gave the 303-gamer his seventh career double.
The Sharks would hit back just before the break, but some Brett Morris magic put Keary away for a double of his own as the veteran winger tip-toed the sideline, throwing a brilliant inside pass to his five-eighth.
Manu would put the result beyond doubt with a trademark bulldozing try of his own, and although the 22-year-old found himself in the sin-bin late in the contest, his teammates' made sure to cap off the night with a 34-18 victory for Aubusson.
