The Sydney Roosters are the first team to win consecutive NRL premierships since 1993, beating the Canberra Raiders 14-8 in a gripping grand final.

The 72nd-minute game winner was scored by James Tedesco on the back of a controversially overturned six-again call against the Raiders, which saw Clive Churchill medallist Jack Wighton take a tackle and turn the ball over, despite referee Ben Cummins having signalled a repeat set only to overrule the call unbeknownst to the Raiders.

Earlier, Roosters half-back Cooper Cronk was controversially sin-binned in the 50th minute for tackling Josh Papalii just before he received the ball, but the 12-man Roosters were able to weather a rampaging Raiders side that only managed two second-half points.
