Recovery Update | Round 18

The Sydney Roosters squad have been assessed by Club medical staff following Saturday's match against the Newcastle Knights.

Captain Jake Friend was forced from the field early in the contest and was unable to return to the field. 

Scans have confirmed that Friend sustained a fractured forearm that will see him sidelined for up to eight weeks while he undergoes rehab. 

The remainder of the NRL squad made it through the match without injury concern and will be available for selection in our Round 19 match against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
