NRL Team Talk | Round 23

RoostersTV caught up with Assistant Coach Steve McNamara to discuss this week's side

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has made a couple of changes to the side that took to the field against the Panthers on Monday night.

It was a dissapointing performance from the Roosters, who were never really able to get into the match against an energetic Panthers outfit.

They'll be looking to turn things around this week for a tough clash against the reigning Premiers on our home turf. 

Mitchell Pearce and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves have been named to make their return from injury, which will see Aidan Guerra shuffle to 18th man. 

Ryan Matterson moves back to the bench and Grant Garvey has been named to play in the Holden Cup.
