Producing an erratic season so far, the Raiders will be targeting some stability and consecutive victories on Sunday against a Rooster side that is missing five stars to Origin.
Both teams come into this showdown on the back of respective six-point triumphs last week, with Canberra taking down Parramatta and the Roosters holding off a fast-finishing Bulldogs side.
Only just climbing into the top eight courtesy of their win over the Eels and the Roosters’ victory over Canterbury, Canberra now have a chance to starting making a push towards higher pastures during the State of Origin period.
Last year’s preliminary finalists only have one player absent on Origin duty – enforcer Josh Papalii – so their side hasn’t really been affected at all in terms of cohesion.
The Roosters meanwhile are missing Mitchell Pearce, Boyd Cordner, Blake Ferguson, Aidan Guerra and Dylan Napa, losing signifiant strike power in the halves, forward and backline.
When they click, Canberra are arguably equipped with the most devastating attack in the competition – and they should be looking to put a big score on a defence that is newly-formed on Sunday.
I’d be leaning towards the Roosters in a close one if both sides were full strength at GIO Stadium, but the Raiders should have more firepower in this Origin-affected battle. Canberra to prevail 13+.
