The Radio Neutrino Observatory Greenland (RNO-G) is planned to be the first large-scale implementation of the in-ice radio detection technique. It targets astrophysical as well as cosmogenic neutrinos with energies above 10 PeV. The deep component of a single RNO-G station consists of three strings with antennas to capture horizontal as well as vertical polarization. This contribution shows a model-based approach to reconstruct the arrival direction of the neutrinos with an RNO-G station. The timing of the waveforms is used to reconstruct the vertex position. The shape and amplitude of the waveform are used to reconstruct the viewing angle. Together with the signal polarization it will add up to the neutrino arrival direction. We present the method used and the achieved angular resolution using the deep component of an RNO-G station.
