Sydney Roosters go in search of consecutive NRL premierships in this Sunday’s Grand Final and we’ve picked out our best bet for the first try scorer.

I do believe the Roosters are going to become the first team since the Broncos in 1992-93 to claim back-to-back NRL premierships, and considering I’m backing them to win, it makes sense to tip a Roosters player to be the first man to cross the stripe.

There’s plenty of options to choose from in their star-studded backline - and a few forwards that know their way over the line as well - but I’m going to back the electric Latrell Mitchell to score the first four-pointer.

Mitchell is a big-name player and relishes these types of situations. The very best rise to the top in matches like these, and Mitchell is arguably the most talented player on the field.

He’s scored 19 tries in 24 games this season, so he will most likely be barging over at some point, and if the Roosters get the chance to spread the ball early to Mitchell’s wing, he will take some stopping, especially close to the line.

Mitchell is $9.00 with online bookmaker Beteasy, but if you’re looking for more value, there’s certainly some to be had in the Roosters forward pack.

Boyd Cordner is a solid $21 to crash over on the edges, while Angus Crichton is listed at $23.

Towering winger Daniel Tupou is the $8.50 favourite, ahead of Mitchell, James Tedesco and Brett Morris on $9.00, while Jordan Rapana is the best-backed Raider at $11, followed by Nick Cotric ($12) and Jarrod Croker ($15).
