Fans Choose Their Ideal Round 1 Team

The fans have had their say on who they want to see in their 17-man side ahead of Team Announcement on Tuesday afternoon and the results are in.

On Thursday afternoon Roosters fans were asked to vote for their ideal line-up based on the criterea of one fullback, two wingers, two centres,one five-eighth, one halfback, two props, one hooker, one lock, one utility and three interchange players.

From 1-11 the side was pretty well as to be expected, though one second rower as well as the utility spot were difficult to pick. 

Siosiua Taukeiaho received a number of votes for prop, lock and interchange, but the most picks he received was as a second rower.

He narrowly edged out Mitchell Aubusson for the second most nods behind Boyd Cordner. 

Aubusson was most favored for the utility position, though Ryan Matterson and Victor Radley were both heavily featured among voting numbers. 

Below is the IDEAL Round 1 line-up as voted by YOU.

Stay tuned Tuesday the 6th of March at 4pm for the official Round 1 side that will take to the field against the Wests Tigers.
