Grand final tips and preview

Roosters v Raiders, Sunday, 7.20pm at ANZ Stadium

Brett Kimmorley says: I see the Roosters winning. They've got big-game players in key positions and that's going to be really important. The forward packs will challenge each other and effectively level each other out, and the outside backs will be much the same. The difference will be in the halves where Keary and Cronk have a lot of experience compared to Jack Wighton and Aidan Sezer. The key moments in the match will come from those two positions. The lack of experience for the Raiders will work in the Roosters' favour. Roosters by 8
