Smart selection Sticky. Bring back one long term injured player into the squad at a time. Sutton gets the nod first. Our three quarter line looks strong.

Cooper Cronk says Canberra Raiders brand of football is "spiritual"

Sydney Roosters playmaker Cooper Cronk describes Canberra's brand of football as "spiritual" under Ricky Stuart this NRL season and has praised them for reviving the green machine of old.

"They've been super consistent all year, not dropped too many games consecutively, they've played a pretty spiritual game of football in terms of team unity, going after every game they play," Cronk said.

Canberra Raiders expecting biggest crowd in years

Canberra Raiders' biggest game at Canberra Stadium since 2016
Good to see some ads promoting the game during the Ashes coverage. Would love it if we could break 20K on Sunday - the boys deserve it.

I'm nervous already. It's going to be a tough week.

I love Oldy but geez I'm glad that Cotric is back this week. His battle with Latrell will be the dongiest of ding-dongs.
Oldie would of ran through latrell like a good dose of Mexican food

Out of curiosity who do people think the " good refs" are this season

Personally i love ziggy, but that could just be cause he has a cool name lol

Joey Leilua named in Canberra Raiders squad to face Sydney Roosters

Joey Leilua is on the cusp of a return to the NRL after defying the odds to overcome a career-threatening neck injury.

"He's going to be a massive addition to our squad come finals time, so certainly, getting some game time under his belt and getting ready for the semis is going to be a massive thing for us," Josh Hodgson said.

Hodgson's comments on Simonsson are interesting... I wonder if we'll see him remain in the 17 with our backline at full strength? I have a feeling he will be named on the interchange next week

Wouldn't be surprised. We tried it earlier in the year and he's in even better form now. With Hodgo playing 80 every week we can afford to have a utility that isn't a hooker if we choose.

Had a dream this game was played in pouring rain. The roosters kicked out on the full to start the game.
They muscled up in defense though, and beat us 12 nil

My dream was totally reverse of that..it was stinking hot. So hot both teams didn't wear jerseys, just body paint. We kicked off..short. It was tapped back into Papaliis soft hands and he ran 45 metres to score the opening try. We won 13-0. Jarrod Croker kicked a field goal..

Both teams coming off big wins. I think Raiders had much tougher opposition, even though Warriors were below par. Titans were just horrible. Bottom line I believe we earned that win more than Roosters did. Hoping we can take advantage and ambush them on Sunday.

Buy of the year: NRL.com experts' view on 2019 best recruit

The Green Machine have the two best buys of the year - it's impossible to split Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad and John Bateman. The rugged Englishman's relentless competitiveness and the young Kiwi's earnest professionalism have transformed the Green Machine from talented but fragile also-rans to serious premiership contenders.

Canberra Raiders back Nick Cotric returns at perfect time for the Green Machine's tough NRL test

Nick Cotric is bracing for the toughest test of his NRL career as he looks to bury the demons of suspension and injury in a top four battle.

"It's definitely good having people coming back from injuries instead of being injured at this time of year," Jack Wighton said. "It's an important time of year, they're two class players [Cotric and Leilua] so it'll be good to have them back in the team.

'Rare air': Stats show the is the Canberra Raiders best season in 16 years

The Raiders are tasting rare air this year, spending more time in the NRL's top four than they have in the past 16 years as they set their sights on a drought-breaking title.

"A lot of people didn't think we would be where we are at the moment, but we believed we would be up there," Elliott Whitehead said. "It is going to be a challenging month, but we've got the Roosters this week and that's the only thing we can focus on.

Was just prompted by a comment on The GH Facebook group to have a look at what tickets are available for Sunday... Meninga Stand, not much left, more in the East Stand, but anything under cover is pretty popular.

"Premium Grandstand" and "Gold Inner Bowl" sold out.

This is starting to feel a whole lot like 2016!

I think we can get some joy and quick play the balls attacking the Roosters down the middle and targeting Verrils, then shift to the right and throw some different shapes at Mitchell. He is still (like most young centres) dodgy with his decision making, Bateman and Cotric with CNK out the back should present him some issues.

It's not uncommon for fans to display overt acts of loyalty and passionate prejudice, especially if you support a team as good and dominant as the roosters.

FTR, there's not many roosters players I'd say no to.

Morris is about the only one.

Not doubting the quality of the roosters team at all. They are stacked.

But to suggest that world class players like Papalii, Bateman, Cotric and Wighton wouldn’t get a look into that roosters 17 is silly.
