New Team Announcement process
Ahead of the first official Sydney Roosters Team Talk on Tuesday afternoon, we've got to run through a few of the changes to the process before we take to the field on Saturday.
As opposed to the old process of a 5pm Team Announcement on Tuesdays, fans will now receive a 21-man squad at 4pm on Tuesdays, a 19-man squad 24 hours prior to kick off and the final side (Late Mail) one hour before the game.
The 21-man squad will consist of 17 players named in position, as well as up to four interchange reserves.
For Holden Cup Team Announcement, you'll receive a 23-man squad at 4pm on Tuesdays, a 20-man squad 24 hours prior to kick off and the usual Late Mail one hour before the game.
With this new process fans can get a better idea of who is training hard for a spot in the side on a weekly basis.
The first official Team Announcement of the 2017 NRL Telstra Premiership season will happen on Roosters.com.au and on the Roosters APP at 4pm, Tuesday the 28th of February.
