Trent Robinson has been forced into making a trio of changes for this Saturday Knight's clash with Newcastle with Aidan Guerra, Michael Jennings and Daniel Tupou unavailable after being selected for their respective sides for Game II of the 2014 Series next Wednesday (18 June) night.
After a successful outing in Round 11 against the Bulldogs Nene Macdonald (wing) and Mitchell Aubusson (centre) will again team-up down the left-edge through the absence of Blues pairing Jennings and Tupou, while Dylan Napa has again gained promotion from the bench to replace Queensland Aidan Guerra in the No. 11 jersey.
Aubusson and Napa's shift from the bench into the starting side sees Kane Evans return to NRL action after a fortnight in the NSW Cup with the Newtown Jets and last week's 18th man Willis Meehan and Daniel Mortimer set to battle it out for the final spot in Robinson's side.
Mortimer returned to action last week with the Jets after a week out with a hamstring injury.
Roosters (1-13): Anthony Minichiello, Nene Macdonald, Mitchell Aubusson, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Jake Friend, Sam Moa, Dylan Napa, Sonny Bill Williams, Frank-Paul Nuuausala
Bench (14-18): Isaac Liu, Remi Casty, Kane Evans, Willis Meehan, Daniel Mortimer
