NRL: Bulldogs eye four in a row against depleted Roosters

Canterbury Bulldogs will be targeting their fourth straight win when they take on the Sydney Roosters in Gosford on Saturday.

The Bulldogs are on a roll after climbing to sixth place on the ladder, but the clash with the Roosters will be a big test.

Cameron Ciraldo’s men can be backed at 2.00 to make the top eight and play finals, and the clash with the men from Bondi will test their credentials.

The Roosters sit just one place above the Bulldogs but will have their eyes on going all the way and winning the 2024 grand final.

They can be backed at 5.50 to do it, but the wins need to keep coming and two points against the Bulldogs is a must.

Both teams lose players to State of Origin, but it looks set to be an exciting, fierce clash nonetheless.

. What: Sydney Roosters v Canterbury Bulldogs
. Where: Industree Group Stadium, Gosford
. When: 17:30 (AEST), Saturday 22nd June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Sydney Roosters 1.40, Canterbury Bulldogs 3.00

Roosters missing key men

The Roosters have been hit hard by State of Origin with Connor Watson, Spencer Leniu, Angus Crichton and Lindsay Collins all unavailable.

There is some good news as James Tedesco will face the Bulldogs after being overlooked by New South Wales, but their strength in depth will be tested regardless.

The Roosters have been struggling to string back-to-back wins together of late, but get the chance to do so against the Bulldogs after beating the Eels last week.

They have a good record against the Bulldogs when winning nine of the last 11 meetings, and a home venue of Industree Group Stadium should not be an issue either.

Trent Robinson’s men have won their last four meetings in Gosford and can be backed at 2.20 to win this latest clash by 13+ points.

Dominic Young will again be a massive threat for the Roosters. The winger is scoring tries for fun and can be backed at 6.50 to grab the first of the game.

Tedesco has also scored 13 tries in the last 11 games against the Bulldogs and is 2.10 to score another at anytime in the game.

Bulldogs eye Roosters double

The Bulldogs beat the Roosters by four points when the two sides met earlier this season and now have the chance to pull off a rare double.

2016 was the last time they beat the Roosters twice in one season, and this could be their best chance to end the streak.

The Bulldogs will be out to repeat their April victory and can be backed at 8.00 to win by 1-5 points once again.

They will be missing the influential Stephen Crichton, who is on Origin duty, so Jacob Kiraz will replace him at centre.

Kiraz can be backed at 3.30 to score a try at anytime.

The Bulldogs are boosted by the news that Matt Burton is available and he will be key to their chances of getting the win.
