The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce the signing of Blake Ferguson to a one-year deal commencing in 2015.

This follows confirmation from the National Rugby League (NRL) that Ferguson’s registration has been accepted.

Sydney Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan, said: “Blake has genuinely applied himself and been totally compliant with all club directions.”

“He has been out of the game for a long period of time and together with the NRL, we have been working closely with Blake to provide him with all the necessary support to get him to this position as he re-establishes his NRL career,” added Canavan.
