We're set for a busy start to the year in 2019, with two confirmed trials and the World Club Challenge all scheduled in over February and March ahead of the NRL Telstra Premiership season.
The 2019 pre-season will kick off with a clash with the World Club Challenge against the Wigan Warriors in Great Manchester, followed by a short turnaround into a trial against the Penrith Panthers at Pepper Stadium.
To conclude the pre-season, we'll take on the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in the annual Central Coast triple header at Central Coast Stadium.
The North Sydney Bears are confirmed to play the curtain raiser to the NRL on the Central Coast and are likely to line up as the curtain raiser to the Panthers trial match as well.
Roosters fans will get a good look at their side over three matches in the pre-season before they begin their title defence in 2019.
