So Luke O’Donnell is officially a Rooster, and there have been no reports of a player being released so far.
There was a report earlier this morning that Anthony Cherrington had been talking to the Panthers, which makes sense for him from a career standpoint as more than likely he’ll get some playing time there.
Personally, I think he should have a chat to Manly. They’ve lost Glenn Stewart for 10 weeks and Tony Williams is now at the ‘Dogs, so it might give him the opportunity to learn from some of the best from an already-successful team.
He should do so anyway, because he’s not getting game time at the Roosters with LO’D in the mix for another year.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson was delighted with his latest acquisition, just 24 hours after securing halfback Mitchell Pearce’s services for another four years.
“Luke has plenty of experience, will fit into our system here well and we’re looking forward to him starting,” said Robinson.
“Together with our other senior players in the forwards like Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Martin Kennedy and Frank-Paul Nuuausala, he’s sure to not only help on the field.
“It will be great to have him mentor the younger forwards we have coming through the ranks.”
