James Tedesco has been ruled out of today’s Round 14 match against the Gold Coast Titans.
Tedesco has this morning failed a fitness test on the hip pointer injury he sustained in Round 12, which was exacerbated in last Wednesday’s State of Origin fixture.
Consequently, Joseph Manu will shift to fullback with Joseph Suaalii coming into the side at centre. Brad Abbey is the addition to the Roosters extended bench.
The team’s final line-up will be confirmed one hour prior to kick-off.
