Updated 19 Man Squad | Round 4

Ahead of tomorrow night's clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named his 19-man squad.

Captain Jake Friend was unable to get through his side's final preparations on Wednesday afternoon, and has been ruled out of tomorrow night's clash.

He sustained a facial injury in our Round 3 match against the Penrith Panthers and was unable to fully recover on a five-day turnaround

In his place, Connor Watson will make his first start for the Sydney Roosters in the dummy-half position this season.

Blake Ferguson has also been ruled out with the rib cartilage injury and Joseph Manu looks set to retain his spot in the centres.
