Canberra Raiders v Sydney Roosters
The Canberra Raiders take on the Sydney Rooster sin the 2019 NRL Grand Final and the great news for all rugby fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our NRL Grand Final live streaming partners.
With the match been played at the impressive ANZ Stadium and with around 80,000 in attendance, the Roosters will likely have more of the crowd behind them as the local side but the Green machine have developed one of the loudest fanbases in the NRL and thanks to been the big underdogs, the neutrals in attendance will likely be on their side.
The Roosters are a side who have been there and done it when it comes to Grand Final and they are a side packed with internationals and State of Origin representatives who are used to playing on the big stage.
The Raiders on the other hand as a club have been away from the big stage for a couple of decades now but they too are packed with internationals, including there always impressive quartet of England internationals.
In Elliott Whitehead, John Bateman, Josh Hodgson and Ryan Sutton, the Raiders English stars have not only impressed those in the ACT but across the country over on the other side of the planet but it has also seen them develop a big fanbase in the UK.
That will likely see Canberra the pick of Northern Hampshire rugby fans but as the team to finish top of the comp and as the more experience side, the Roosters will be favourites for many.
The Roosters have won 4 of their last 5 matches whilst the Raiders have won 3 of their last 5.
Whilst Canberra don’t go into this game as much of as underdogs as Salford do in the Super League Grand Final, it is still the Roosters who are the big favourites.
The local side have been there and done it when it comes to Grand Finals but there is something special brewing in the ACT at the moment and with the passionate Green Machine fans behind them, we are going to back Canberra for the win.
Just about every members of the Canberra squad is in top form and with limited injury’s, they have really developed a great team unity this season, with their English players adding that touch of quality to get them over the line time and time again.
As with all big finals, we do expect a close game and with the quality that the Roosters do have you can never rule them out but in the ned the one thing we can guarantee is that all fans will be the winners on the day as the NRL Grand Final is one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
