Sydney Roosters and Cronulla Sharks clash on Saturday night at the SCG in NRL Round 19. The Sharks have wrapped up their spot in the finals, while the Roosters still need a win to book a double chance courtesy of a top four finish.

Roosters Form & Team News

The Roosters sit in third spot with a 13-5 record heading into the penultimate round of the season, but still need another victory to be assured of a finishing in the top four. 

Sydney made it four wins in a row last week when disposing of the Newcastle Knights 42-12 and have now surpassed 38 points in three of their last four matches. The free-flowing footy has ensured the Roosters have the best attack in the competition.
