Adam Hartigan has been forced into a change to his side for this Saturday's Round 25 Holden Cup clash with the Melbourne Storm following centre Taane Milne today accepting a two match ban from the NRL Match Review Committee.
It isn't all doom-and-gloom for the NYC Head Coach however with Jackson Hastings returning to the halves after last Saturday turning out for the Newtown Jets in their VB NSW Cup win over the Warriors in Auckland.
Hastings return sees Nene Macdonald shift back to fullback from five-eighth in place of Joseph Manu, while Milne's absence sees Paul Momirovski shift from the wing into the centres and Chevi Ellis join the side.
In the only other change, Arthur Currie joins a seven man bench named by Hartigan.
Roosters U20s: Nene Macdonald, Chevi Ellis, Brendan Elliot, Paul Momirovski, Jack Goodsell, Tyler Cornish (vc), Jackson Hastings, Braden Uele, Alex Thomas (c), Jokatama Dokonivalu, Vincent Leuluai, Willis Meehan, Jake Lewis
Bench: Grant Garvey, Mitch Mamary, Piki Rogers, Alex Lyons, Arthur Currie, Harry Vanderhart, Poasa Faamausili
