NRL Team Talk | Round 3

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named his 21-man squad with some new inclusions ahead of our Saturday night clash with the Penrith Panthers.

With two Roosters sustaining injuries in Round 2, there were a couple of spaces of for grabs this week and some new faces named in the extended squad. 

Joseph Manu looks set to get his first start of the year in place of the injured Blake Ferguson in the centres, while Zane Tetevano will take the vacant spot on the bench with Kane Evans set to miss a week. 

Paul Carter is back on the extended bench, with Lindsay Collins and Mitch Cornish being named for the first time in 2017.
