NYC side determined to return to winners circle

It's a big test for our Holden Cup team this Monday night when they take on Manly at Allianz Stadium.


Whilst the two sides position on the ladder would suggest the Tricolours should grab the two points in this one, we do also know that nothing is predictable in the U/20s competition.


Add to this the fact that Manly won the last clash between these two sides, 28-24 in a fierce encounter at Brookvale Oval, and we are in for a real encounter.


Willis Meehan makes his return to the Roosters squad, after being selected in the NSW U/18 side, to compete in the curtain raiser to Origin 2.



Both sides come in to this encounter having lost last start, the Tricolours after succumbing 23-16 to the Dogs, in a result that did not go down well with the playing group.


Consistent eighty minute performances and a solid defensive line have been the cornerstone of the Tricolours victories in 2013 and they will be expecting a return to that style of football on Monday night.


Coach Paul Green has named an extended bench with two players still to drop out on game day.
