The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce the signing of highly-sought after Australian Schoolboy, Jayden Nikorima.

With a number of NRL Clubs pursuing his services, the Roosters have signed the exciting 18 year-old utility for three seasons commencing in 2016.

Roosters recruitment manager, Peter O’Sullivan, believes that Nikorima has a big future in the NRL.

“Jayden is a wonderfully talented young man who can play in the halves, at hooker or fullback and we’re pleased to have secured his services,” said O’Sullivan.

“Jayden possesses brilliant speed and a running game to bring balance to our squad and we look forward to watching him develop on and off the footy field in the coming years,” he added.

Nikorima will officially join the Roosters when the Club’s 2016 NRL pre-season commences later this year.
