The Sydney Roosters are proud to announce the line up for Thursday night's Round 21 match against the Brisbane Broncos at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The blockbuster against the Broncos will be the Tricolours' first match at the SCG since Round 14, which will kick off the final three matches on the hallowed ground in 2022 before the Roosters move into Allianz Stadium from Round 25.
The Roosters will not only be looking to claim their fourth consecutive victory following a steely 20-10 defeat of Manly last week, but will also be looking to mark the occasion with a second victory over Brisbane this season after their thrilling 24-20 outing in Round 5.
Trent Robinson's side has had two changes made in the forward pack, with both Lindsay Collins and Egan Butcher omitted from the side.
Captain James Tedesco takes his place at fullback in his 199th NRL match, joined by veteran Daniel Tupou, Paul Momirovski, Joseph Manu and Joseph Suaalii in the backline.
Keary: "I'm Just Stoked to be Back"
Luke Keary and Sam Walker continue to forge their partnership in the halves, while Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Sam Verrills and Matt Lodge line up in the front row.
The back row features Nat Butcher and Angus Crichton, with Victor Radley once again locking up the scrum.
Ben Thomas will make his first appearance of the season from the interchange bench alongside livewire Connor Watson, utility Drew Hutchison and rookie front rower Terrell May, who is set to play his sixth NRL match.
The extended bench features Adam Keighran, Fletcher Baker, Kevin Naiqama, Renouf Atoni and Siua Wong.
