Team Announcement | Round 18

Head Coach Trent Robinson has named his 21-man squad ahead of Saturday's Round 18 clash against the Newcastle Knights at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Captain Jake Friend will skipper his 100th game for the Club while Daniel Tupou makes his 150th NRL and Club appearance this Saturday. 

The Roosters return to the Sydney Cricket Ground for the first time since Round 14, and with State of Origin representatives Boyd Cordner and James Tedesco back in the side the Roosters will be looking to put in a strong performance at home. Their return sees Joseph Manu shift back into Centre and while Brett Morris and Nat Butcher move to the bench.
