NRL Team Talk | Round 9

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named the side that is set to face the Newcastle Knights at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

It was another tight battle for the Roosters on Anzac Day, and the squad can take plenty out of a physical clash with the Dragons.

This week will mark the long awaited return of Mitchell Pearce and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves. 

Joe Burgess remains on the wing in place of Daniel Tupou, while Mitchell Aubusson shuffles inside him at the centre position. 

After an impressive debut, Ryan Matterson has been re-called to the side on the interchange bench.
