Trent Robinson's Roosters will this weekend look to head into their final BYE of the 2013 season with three wins on the trot, when they face the Dragons on Saturday night at WIN Jubilee Oval.

Robinson's side are coming off the back of an impressive Monday Night Footy win over the Sea Eagles at Allianz Stadium, making it two from two this season against one of the NRL's benchmark sides.

NSW five-eighth James Maloney has been named to start after missing Monday night's clash with Manly due to a facial injury suffered in Game II of the State of Origin series at Suncorp Stadium.

Maloney's return means the game's biggest ever No.6 Sonny Bill Williams will move back to the second row and Frank-Paul Nuuasala to the bench.

Isaac Liu, who came into the team for Maloney, has been named as 18th man.

The boys from Bondi moved into second spot on the competition ladder following their win, leapfrogging last year's premiers Melbourne Storm after their loss to the Tigers on Saturday night, and the Tricolours will be undoubtedly out to continue to add pressure to the competition leader's Souths.

The Roosters claimed the points the first time the two sides met this season, on ANZAC Day, with Anthony Minichiello's recording a 34-10 win in front of a sold out Allianz Stadium.

With the two sides sitting at opposite ends of the ladder, some may suggest that Steve Price's men are an easy-beat for the Robinson led Roosters however the 2nd placed side will need to be on guard for an ambush when they arrive at a stadium they have never recorded an NRL win at against the merger club.

With a handful of exciting individual clashes across the park, this is a match certain to excite the Kogarah crowd, but probably none more so than the battle of two of the NRL's most in-form finishers.

Blues wing Brett Morris will face off with the electric Roger Tuivasa-Sheck of the Roosters, with the experienced Morris sure to be keen to shut down one of the Chooks most dangerous attacking weapons.

Albeit they're beginning to be known for their defensvie heroics, the Roosters are a side also capabale of scoring plenty of points. With 59 tries this season, they have just under a third more than this week's opponents who sit on just 40 after 16 rounds.

The match kick's off at 5.30pm on Saturday night and is LIVE on Fox Sports 1 - Channel 501.
