NRL Grand Final: Sydney Roosters vs Canberra Raiders talking points


Sydney vs Canberra
9:30am Sunday 6th October

ANZ Stadium

The highlight of the Australian season takes place on Sunday as Sydney Roosters along with Canberra Raiders struggle in the NRL Grand Final.
Defending champions that the Roosters are aiming to make it rare finals successes, while the Raiders are back from the showpiece contest for the first time since winning the NSWRL Premiership in 1994.
Its possible to observe this years NRL Grand Final live on Sky Sports Arena out of 8.30am BST (kick-off 9.30am BST), and before the game, we have talking points, perspectives from both teams, and staff news…
A Premiership was raised by the last time Canberra, Ricky Stuart was still playing for the club.
This was when the coach started at half-back at a star-studded group such as other greats such as Steve, Laurie Daley, and the Walters brothers, Kevin and Mal Meninga.
The 36-12 win over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in the NSWRL Grand Final had been the final of three titles in a five-year period for the club and also, in the moment, few would have expected the Raiders would not come back to the showpiece game for one more quarter of a century.
Plenty of memories from 1994 have been stirred up because Stuarts side booked their place in this seasons final with a dramatic victory over South Sydney Rabbitohs in the semi-finals a week, even with those iconic players in the era.
But the Raiders boss isnt indulging in any nostalgia ahead of the showdown with the Roosters.
This is about us this week, Stuart explained. The boys have all done a very good job of wanting that to be a part of our culture, but know that you can appreciate the past (while ensuring) this is about us.
We all know they are encouraging us, as are a whole good deal of those other ex-players, however that really is all about trying to keep a pretty normal routine.
It is very important to them to handle it, but also to enjoy the times they have to enjoy and focus (if they will need to). Theyre sensible enough guys, they understand that (the Grand Final week distractions) are winding up
Had things worked out differently, James Tedesco might well have been lining up at ANZ Stadium on Sunday to the Raiders rather than the Roosters.
That the full-back — then playing for Wests Tigers — and Canberra had agreed a deal to join as a replacement for Brisbane Broncos-bound Anthony Milford.
However, influence Tedesco was helped by Tigers team-mate Robbie Farahs efforts into reneging on the arrangement, much to the chagrin of their fans and the Raiders and staying in the club.
The 26-year-old eventually departed Wests to the Roosters ahead of last time and hes not spent much time considering what could happen to be this Sunday, while he expects some barracking in the Raiders fans.
It might have been different or it could have been the very same, Tedesco said. That entire situation that occurred wasnt perfect, but thats just how it is sometimes and Im quite proud to be here.
I have to anticipate it and I have coped some abuse once Ive headed , but theyve forgotten about it now.
Surely, his spell using all the Roosters has been demonstrated to be a one so far. Tedesco was a part of the group which won the Grand Final and also his efforts of a year in them returning this season saw him pick up the Dally M player of the year award this week.
Its been a fairly successful two decades, but theres still one game to move on Sunday, Tedesco said. Well prepare as best we can and get ready to go on Sunday.
It is only the culture we have here — we are interested in being powerful and it all started in November last year with pre-season training.
We knew it was not going to be simple, winning it last year, and groups were going to come after us, but its a fairly major achievement for our staff to get through that and have this opportunity.
Canberra winger Daniel Vidot remains keeping a close watch, although these days he competes under the name Ghost Vin Quade at the wrestling ring.
The 29-year-old spent five years in the beginning of his career after graduating from their youth system, moving on to evaluate 27 tries before continuing on to St George Illawarra Dragons at 2012 in 45 appearances.
Vidot, who called time in his career in 2017 after a spell with Gold Coast Titans, rival in WWE because he tries to forge another career and is living in the united states.
Yet he is backing them to overcome the reigning champions also also is thrilled to find that the Raiders reach on the NRL Grand Final after arriving close during his period with the club.
It is definitely going to be an great match, but being a Raiders player for five years Im going to proceed with the Raiders, Vidot told Sky Sports.
Hopefully that the Green Machine includes the victory. They have been looking great coming and hopefully they get finished.
It has been a long time since they were in the Grand Final. We still got knocked out, although back in 2010, I was part of this team that made the semis.
I believe the outcome is going to be much different this week. It will be a close game, Sydney Roosters have been rising all year, however I am just looking for the upset with the Raiders.
Trent Robinson never had any doubt in his head the Roosters went to make it for the second year running when they moved through a mid-season slump.
The teams form dipped around exactly the exact identical time because this seasons State of Origin, however, head coach Robinsons side rallied in the second half of the effort to finish second at the table and struggle throughout the play-offs to return to ANZ Stadium for the decider.
Suspensions and even accidents to a key players have not proven to be a disruption, together using members of their squad and Robinson insists there was never a stage.
Right from January if we all got back together, we werent searching for precisely the same feeling, Robinson explained. Weve just been setting about our job and also the guys attitude has been put on.
We had a few weeks before Origin at which we didnt play with the footy that we wanted to and then we started to mould it .
I feel that the freshness of some men coming in has added . When youve got and they have not experienced anything before, that adds warmth.
However, also if youre going into some thing to win something, thats a long way away. If you are going to a week or coaching session, believing that you have got more in yourself, then that is correct there for you.
The Roosters second-place finish watched them host competitions South Sydney at the Sydney Cricket Ground breezing to advance to the preliminary finals.
They found themselves up against table-toppers the Storm, who had overcome a defeat at home to the Raiders to defeat Parramatta Eels 32-0 in the semis.
A close-fought contest in the SCG watched the Roosters emerge at the top 14-6 due to efforts in Boyd Cordner and Tedesco, in Addition to the goal-kicking of Latrell Mitchell.
After finishing fourth in the season, Canberra had been handed the visit to Melbourne from the first round of the finals series, but defeated the chance to snatch a 12-10 victory as a result of some 78th-minute try from row Bateman.
The semi-final clash with the Rabbitohs in front of a 26,567 audience at GIO Stadium proved just as tense and also a 73rd-minute score out of Josh Papallii, whilst Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad was in the sin-bin to get a professional foul, watched the Raider finish a second smash and grab to book their place at the closing.
The Roosters welcome prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves back from suspension and he goes straight back to the, with Siosiua Taukeiaho dropping to the bench.
Stand-off Luke Keary sat out instruction before this week but Sydney are convinced that he is going to have the ability to incorporate in Sundays final.
Raiders head coach Stuart has called an unchanged 17 with Josh Hodgson having made a full recovery, in the team that defeated the Rabbitohs.
Hodgsons fellow Englishman Bateman has been quarantined for exactly the identical reason, however will probably have regained by Sunday.
