Team Talk | Round 13

NRL Head Coach Trent Robinson has named a new-look Roosters side to take on the Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Team Talk with Craig Fitzgibbon

With four Roosters missing from this match due to their selection in State Of Origin I, there has been plenty of movement in the side. 

After successfully recovering from a pectoral injury sustained in Round 2, the Roosters receive a huge boost in Round 13 with the return of Daniel Tupou on the wing. 

Joseph Manu shuffles back into the centres, while Matthew Ikuvalu looks set to make his NRL debut on the wing after a string of impressive performances for the Wyong Roos. 

Victor Radley gets the start in the second row, while Jared Waerea-Hargreaves locks up the starting prop position in the absence of Dylan Napa. 

Frank-Paul Nuuausala and Nat Butcher have been named on the interchange, with Poasa Faamausili and Paul Momirovski being added to the extended bench.

There are too many reasons to get down to Allianz Stadium this family friendly Sunday afternoon, including four $10 food combos, kids taking to the field at full time and plenty of family friendly activities!
