In this week’s Pearl’s Preview Pod former Broncos centre Steve Renouf predicts the Roosters will ambush the Raiders in attack and defence in the NRL grand final with returning prop Jared Waerea-Hargrveaves to play a key role.
Renouf said he was expecting Waerea-Hargreaves to target Raiders second-rower John Bateman and “take him out” with a massive old school hit.
“I expect it to be legal though,” Renouf chuckled.
Renouf has tipped the Roosters to win by 12 and to have too much strike and big game experience across the park.
He also outlines why Burleigh will beat Newtown in the NRL State Championship final and says Broncos captain Ali Brigginshaw will be lifting the Holden Women’s Premiership trophy after the NRLW showdown with the Dragons.
