He may struggle with his coffee orders at the local Bondi cafes but the torrid nature of his play will ensure Remi Casty fits right in to the NRL according to new Sydney Roosters teammate Jake Friend.

Along with former Rooster Heath L'Estrange and Curtis Naughton, Casty is one of three Super League players lured to join the defending premiers during the off-season and as an experienced French international arguably has the most to prove.

Casty was named in the Super League Dream Team playing under Roosters coach Trent Robinson at Catalans Dragons in 2012 and Friend is confident that he has seen enough in training to suggest the rugged Casty will be a handy addition to the forward stocks.

"He's just a strong... He's just a goer. He goes and goes and looks real strong in the gym and that sort of thing. Bit of a workhorse and it will be good to see how he goes this year," Friend told NRL.com.

"He's not too bad with the sun, his English isn't too great but he's all good, he's settling in and from what he's looked like at training he should go well."
