Sonny Bill Williams is ready for the third and likely final instalment of his NRL career when he returns for the Sydney Roosters against Canberra. The 35-year-old dual-code international was signed from the Super League's Toronto Wolfpack and has been named on the bench for the reigning premiers.

The fifth-placed Raiders, who lost a controversial grand final to the Roosters last year, defeated the Sydney club in a rematch back in July. With the teams separated by points difference only, there is plenty on the line in Canberra.

Who will win Canberra Raiders vs Sydney Roosters?

Fifth-placed Canberra hosting the fourth-ranked Roosters just four weeks out from the finals – it's a dream match-up. Throw Sonny Bill's return into the mix and it's a game footy fans won't want to miss. The Roosters have piled on 96 points in wins over the Broncos and Tigers and welcome back Luke Keary this week. The home side has been in decent form too and this could be a classic, but we're leaning towards the Tricolours.
