Sydney Roosters: 2021 round 1 predicted team

Victor Radley and Sam Verrills are racing the clock for round one after suffering ACL ruptures during the 2020 season but Radley would come straight in if fit. If neither makes round one then the last bench spot if a toss-up between Hutchison as a utility or another forward such as Daniel Fifita.

Sam Walker shapes as the long-term No.7 but may not quite be NRL-ready yet, in which case Lachlan Lam would start the season with the recently re-signed Hutchison and recruit Adam Keighran as other options.

1. James Tedesco
2. Daniel Tupou
3. Josh Morris
4. Joseph Manu
5. Brett Morris
6. Luke Keary
7. Lachlan Lam
8. Jared Waerea-Hargreaves
9. Jake Friend
10. Sio Siua Taukeiaho
11. Angus Crichton
12. Boyd Cordner
13. Isaac Liu

14. Nat Butcher
15. Lindsay Collins
16. Sitili Tupouniua
17. Drew Hutchison

Others: Fletcher Baker, Egan Butcher, Matt Ikuvalu, Adam Keighran, Victor Radley, Billy Smith, Joseph Suaalii, Daniel Suluka-Fifita, Sam Verrills, Sam Walker

If Lam and Friend are regulars in their spine they might be in a bit of trouble. They’d want Walker to progress quickly... and get Radley and Verrills out there quickly.

Verrills maybe. Radley no. He's pretty ordinary at dummy half.

Wasn't thinking of Radley for dummy half, more that the forwards missing some fire power without him.

I'd have Radley over Liu, and Verrills over Collins easily, Liu would take Hutchinsons spot on the bench.

I see Suaalii has been selected for the emerging Blues squad and it is pretty obvious how the Roosters lured him to the club. This is a misuse of power by Fittler. Hate to get all 'Toovey like' but I think there needs to be an investigation into this.

Just a little too obvious. He hasn't even played a game of senior rugby league yet. On that point the Rorters has requested the NRL waive the minimum age restriction to allow him to play this year. If this is allowed they may as well scrap the rule completely.

Boyd Cordner set to miss first 12 weeks as Sydney Roosters seek $350,000 cap relief

Champion Sydney Roosters co-captain Boyd Cordner looks set to miss at least the opening 12 games of the season, with the Tricolours making a formal submission to the NRL for $350,000 in salary cap relief. Cordner suffered his fourth concussion of the season playing Origin I in Adelaide last November.

Under the NRL rules, the Roosters are eligible to apply for salary cap relief because Cordner sustained the injury playing representative football.

They're having a bubble bath, but the ridiculous precedent has been set with the bunnies.

Sydney Roosters forward Victor Radley banned for two matches after Byron Bay incident

The National Rugby League (NRL) has suspended Sydney Roosters player Victor Radley for two matches and fined him $20,000, with 50 per cent suspended for 12 months, and directed him to complete an appropriate education and training course, after he was involved in an incident in Byron Bay on 30 December 2020.

Radley breached the game’s code of conduct when he tackled an individual in a street. The penalty reflects both Radley’s conduct and failure to report the incident.

In accepting the Breach Notice, Radley has apologised for his actions.

Radley has also been required to report back to the Club and NRL following the completion of the education and training course.

I guess those couple of games include the couple at the start of the year he's due to miss due to injury?

The original Bondi brand was Single Cow. This is long before you could milk nuts.
