Join the Sydney Roosters in honouring the generations of servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms in wars, conflicts and peace operations at the annual ANZAC Day game to be played on Tuesday April 25 at Allianz Stadium.
The Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons have competed for the ANZAC Day Cup on our most important national day since 2002, with the exception of the 2020 season, where the teams played for the Cup on August 6, to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Lone Pine.
Last year's match for the XXI ANZAC Day Cup went down to the wire, as the Roosters kept the Dragons scoreless in the second half to stage a comeback at the Sydney Cricket Ground and this year's game is set to be another thriller.
