Trent Robinson has made two changes to the side that took to the field last weekend for this Friday’s Round 6 clash with the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.
Jared Waerea-Hargreaves returns to the starting side after a calf strain ruled him out of the game against the Sharks, with Dylan Napa returning to the bench.
Meanwhile, Mitchell Aubusson shifts to the back row following the news yesterday that Australian international Aidan Guerra will be out for up to six weeks with a fractured jaw.
The side is otherwise unchanged with Robinson’s bench comprising Willie Manu, Dylan Napa, Kane Evans and Sio Siua Taukeiaho.
Roosters (1-13): Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Daniel Tupou, Michael Jennings, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, Nene Macdonald, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce (c), Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Matt McIlwrick, Sam Moa, Boyd Cordner, Mitchell Aubusson, Isaac Liu
Bench (14-17): Willie Manu, Dylan Napa, Kane Evans, Sio Siua Taukeiaho
