The Roosters have stumbled all season but if they are going to make a title push it has to start this week.
The Sydney Roosters remarkably sit outside the Top 8 despite their talent. With Origin now in the books, it is time to put up for the Roosters.
They have taken this home game against the Dragons to Gosford but remain in an excellent spot.
The Roosters have won 15 of 19 against the Saints with seven of the last eight won by 8 or more points. The Chooks have covered 20 of 33 off a loss and 12 of 18 off a loss of more than one converted try.
The Saints have been hanging around this year but have covered just 3 of 13 away from Kogarah and Wollongong and just 2 of 7 off conceding 30-plus.
The Roosters should have too much firepower.
Same Game Multi
Joseph Suaalii has nine tries in his last 11 games and has been the primary kicking target for the Roosters this season.
Joey Manu has scored four tries in his last four games against the Dragons and has eight tries in 13 games when starting in the spine.
Sitili Tupouniua has 23 tries in 46 starts as a backrower so his price is huge overs despite his odds trimming significantly in recent weeks. He has crossed in five of his last six starts as a backrower and has scored in four straight against the Dragons.
