The traditional Anzac Day clash between the Dragons and Roosters is one to circle in the rugby league calendar every year and one every player cherishes being a part of.
Both teams come into this one off the back of a narrow win; the Roosters weren't exactly convincing against the Warriors in round six but a super second half from young star Sam Walker got them over the line.
The Dragons were even scratchier against the Knights but after four straight losses simply needed to find a way to win, and they did.

Tariq Sims v Angus Crichton: the two former Blues teammates could be set for a fiery match-up on that side of the field if Crichton again gets solid minutes out wide. He's spent time coming off the bench as Trent Robinson looks to get the best out of him while Sims has also been shuffled through the middle rotation at times this year. Expect no backward steps from either man come Monday.
Dragons halfback Ben Hunt leads the NRL for line-engaged runs with 51, which is 10 clear of second-best, Nicho Hynes. The Red V are at their best when he gets his hands on the ball and he will have plenty to do against the Tricolours.
