NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named the side set to face the Melbourne Storm at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

Buzzing on the back of a win against the Wests Tigers, the Roosters are looking forward to a clash with one of the Premiership heavyweights of the competition on our home turf.

Despite coming off the field against the Wests Tigers, Latrell Mitchell has been named to play, while Isaac Liu has been left out of the side this week with an ankle sprain. 

Mitchell Pearce is once again out of the side, leaving Jackson Hastings to play at the halfback position again this week. 

Kane Evans is back in the starting line-up at lock for Liu, with Sio Siua Taukeiaho shuffling into the second row.
