As we farewell the decade that was from 2010 to 2019, the Sydney Roosters look back on an extremely memorable ten seasons for the Club.

In what was a tough season for the Tricolours, 2011 still gifted us some memorable moments and paved the way for future seasons of success.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane and remember the SECOND of our ten celebrated seasons.

2011

Despite starting the season strong with a win against the South Sydney Rabbitohs, the Roosters would go on to lose seven of their following eight games. 

The second half of the season was much improved on the first, but with injury and a number of changes to the line-up the Roosters struggled to find consistency. 

After a tough loss to the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in Round 22, the Roosters would finish out the season on a high by claiming four straight victories.

In the final game of the season they would go on to roll Minor Premiers, the Melbourne Storm by 40-8 to conclude a tough season on a high note.

VALE ARTHUR BEETSON

Sydney Roosters legend and immortal very sadly passed away in 2011.

His memory is etched in Roosters history forever, and he remains one of the great Roosters to ever play the game of rugby league.

MOMENTS TO REMEMBER
