Head Coach Adam Hartigan has named his side for this Friday night's Holden Cup clash with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, with the Under 20s mentor making just one change to the side that last weekend beat the Cowboys 55-14 in Townsville.

Willis Meehan is the only absentee from the side that registered the 41-point win over their North Queensland counterparts, with the hard-hitting forward named in the Newtown Jets side to face the Illawarra Cutters.

Meehan's place in the front row has been taken by Braden Uele, who shifts from the bench into the starting side.

PNG International Nene Macdonald remains in the No. 6 shirt in the absence of Jackson Hastings, with the speedster last week receiving the Player's Player Award in his debut match in the halves.

Macdonald's replacement at fullback, Arthur Currie [pictured], will line-up once again in the No. 1 shirt after a more than impressive first appearance at the back against the Cowboys last weekend.

Roosters (1-13): 
Arthur Currie, Misielli Vaikeli, Brendan Elliot, Taane Milne, Jack Goodsell, Nene Macdonald, Tyler Cornish, Braden Uele, Alex Thomas (c), Jokatama Dokonivalu, Vincent Leuluai, Jakiel Mariner, Alex Lyons

Bench (14-17): Harry Vanderhart, Mitch Mamary, Jake Lewis, Addison Demetriou
