Sydney Roosters v Canterbury Bulldogs

The Sydney Roosters welcome the Canterbury Bulldogs to the Allianz Stadium for this round 2 Sydney derby from the NRL and the great news is that you can watch the action live online.

The Roosters went into this season full of hope and full of expectation after some strong off-season recruitment including the signing of the Kangaroos half back Cooper Cronk, but things didn’t get off to a great start as they went down to a 2-point loss in round 1 to the Tigers.

In round 2 they come up against a Canterbury Bulldogs team that went into the new season with no expectations on then after poor recruitment mixed with losing star names over the off season and sadly for their fans they did live up to expectation with a heavy loss against Melbourne.

Although the Doggies have had a tough draw to start to the season, if they could pull off a shock win in this one it could be just the confidence boost and moral boost they need to push on for the top 8.


The Sydney Roosters lost by 2 points to the Tigers in round 1 whilst the Bulldogs lost heavily to the Storm.

Team News

The Roosters make a few changes with Luke Keary coming back in after missing round 1. That see’s Mitch Cornish drop to the bench.

Boyd Corner moves from the bench to the starting line up in place of Ryan Matterson.

Canterbury make no changes to their match day squad but Renouf To’omaga repalces Francis Tualau in reserve.


Despite their shock result in round 1 we can only see a home victory in this one. This Roosters team have the quality to make the Grand Final this year if they can just get the confidence and belief needed into their players.

The Bulldogs on the other hand are lacking across the park and their off season recruitment decisions really seem to be hitting them hard- even at this early stage.

The return of Luke Keary adds another 80 minute players who never give sup to the Roosters team and that should be all of the difference they need to not slip up again against a Sydney club.
