The Sydney Roosters are in a precarious position in the rugby league ladder, sitting in 10th place and struggling to score points. Their upcoming match against the Bulldogs is crucial for them to stay in the race for a finals spot. Even with the likes of James Tedesco, Joey Manu, and Joseph Suaalii, the Roosters are only averaging 16 points per game, which is significantly less than their 2020 average of 26.4 points per game.
But the Bulldogs are also having issues with their attack, only scoring an average of 17 points per game. The combination of Matt Burton and Karl Oloapu is still developing, and the success of Josh Addo-Carr and Jacob Kiraz will depend on the opportunities presented in the game.
The Bulldogs have a recent victory over the Titans under their belt, and will be hoping to continue their winning momentum against the Roosters. In their previous meeting last year, the Bulldogs unexpectedly ended a six-game losing streak by defeating the Roosters 16-12 with Addo-Carr scoring a double.
Both teams have a lot to play for in what promises to be a thrilling match. It’s now all on the line for the Roosters, as they look to resurrect their season and take the win to keep their finals hopes alive, but the Bulldogs are not to be underestimated and will be looking to continue their upward climb.
