The Sydney Roosters can confirm that upon the conclusion of the Roosters v Storm fixture, hooker Jake Friend was last night taken for x-rays, which were cleared, after complaining of shortness of breath.

He was later taken to hospital when the symptoms continued and has been diagnosed with a Haemothorax. He remains in hospital while he undergoes further examination.

The Sydney Roosters will provide an update in due course.
