The Roosters' next assignment is against the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium, Belconnen, kicking off at 7.35 pm on Saturday, 5 September 2020. This should be a mouth watering affair, given what happened to the Roosters in the last meeting between these teams.

This occasion may mark the return of SBW to the NRL. More to be revealed in coming days.

According to the NRL website, we are starting as $1.39 favourites, with the Raiders at $3.00. I thought it would be closer than this - perhaps around the $1.90 to $2.00 mark, for instance.
