NSW Cup & Jersey Flegg: Round 12 Preview

The Canberra Raiders NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg teams are gearing up for an exciting triple-header against the Sydney Roosters this Saturday at GIO Stadium, Canberra.

With the Jersey Flegg side kicking off at 11am, and the NSW Cup match following at 12:40pm before the NRL Indigenous Round clash, fans are in for action-packed day of rugby league.


Coming off a 24-16 loss against the Dragons last weekend, the Raiders are hoping to bounce back this weekend as they face the Roosters.

The Raiders are currently sitting in third place on the ladder, with six wins, three losses and a draw.

Despite last weekend’s loss, the game saw strong performances from Simi Sasagi and James Schiller, both crossing the line in the second half in a comeback effort.

The Raiders team list remains largely unchanged, except for Peter Hola who will be filling the NRL’s vacant bench prop spot following forward Emre Guler’s promotion to the Raiders' starting line-up.

The Roosters have had a mixed start to the season and are currently sitting in 11th place on the ladder.

Fresh off a bye, the Roosters will be looking to climb up the ladder and bag a win this weekend at GIO Stadium.

The last time these teams met was in round 17 of last season, where the Raiders defeated the Roosters 30-22 at Wentworth Park, Sydney.

Kick off for this game is at 12:40pm on Saturday before the NRL match at GIO Stadium, Canberra.

Jersey Flegg Cup 

This Saturday’s excitement will kick off at 11am, with the Raiders gearing up to face the Roosters at GIO Stadium, Canberra.

The Raiders are fresh off a bye, following a demanding 56-8 victory in Fiji against the Kaiviti Silktails.

After a strong start to the season, including eight wins and two losses, the Raiders will be looking to carry over this momentum and hold onto their spot on top of the Ladder.

There are a few changes to the Raiders lineup this week, including Delahia Wigmore and Jesse Limon both starting as lock and centre respectively.

The Roosters have had a mixed start to the season, currently fifth place on the ladder with six wins and four losses.

With the Roosters also coming off a bye, following a 34-22 win against the New Zealand Warriors, both teams will be hungry for a win this weekend in Canberra. 

The last time these two teams met was in round 17 of last season, where the Raiders were defeated 24-12 by the Roosters at Wentworth Park, Sydney.
