Roosters to return home in round nine
Back-to-back NRL premiers the Sydney Roosters will meet fellow 2019 grand finalists the Canberra Raiders at the Sydney Cricket Ground in round nine of the NRL, the code has announced today (July 6).
Updated fixtures have the Roosters drawn to tackle the Raiders (Thursday, July 16) and Titans (Saturday, August 1) at the SCG in rounds nine and 12, respectively.
The Roosters-Raiders clash marks the NRL’s return to the SCG for the first time since the Roosters’ preliminary final triumph over the Melbourne Storm last September.
It will be a historical night for the visiting Raiders, who have been unsighted at the SCG since the side’s 18-8 loss to Manly in the 1987 NSWRL grand final.
