Roosters vs Raiders Match Up

Roosters five-eighth Luke Keary continues to cement his standing as one of the game's premier playmakers, racking up 10 try assists, seven line-break assists and four tries over the first nine rounds. When Josh Wighton plays well the Raiders invariably follow suit. If he can out-point Keary and make the Roosters work overtime in defence with a strong kicking and passing game, the Raiders could spring an upset.
