Roosters Statement Regarding Round 9 Line Up Changes

Following an injury sustained during today’s Captain’s Run, Fletcher Baker has been ruled out of the Sydney Roosters 21-man squad.

Consequently, the Roosters have been granted an exemption by the NRL to replace him with Tuku Hau Tapuha. Hau Tapuha joins the squad in jersey number 24.

The Sydney Roosters squad will be reduced to 19 men 24 hours prior to kick-off.
