The Roosters will face arch-rivals the Rabbitohs in the preliminary final, with the winner going through to the grand and the loser having their season ended.

Cooper was brought to the club from Melbourne to lead them to success.

The veteran halfback is relishing another shot at glory.

"I like to think there's not a moment in the game I'm not prepared for," Cronk told

"Pressure only comes in big moments. If you don't feel pressure, then you're probably not part of a big moment. In sport, you want to be among the big occasions – as many as possible. For me, it's just auto-pilot.

"I kick into what I've been doing in training. I don't get to the 76th minute of a game and do something I've not done on the field before.

"I've always had confidence in the fact that I train at an intense level, so when it [a moment] does come in a game situation, no matter the situation, I'm ready for it."
