Its confirmed: The Matrix, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, is out of tonight’s game versus the Dragons.
RTS posted a video to Instagram today and commented alongside it with the following:
26 Rounds has since had it confirmed, so expect Mitch Aubusson to move into the centres and Shaun Kenny-Dowall to shift to the wing.
The Sheck suffered a heavy head knock just five days ago in the clash against the Sea Eagles, and medicos may have told him he was unable to play so soon afterwards.
The Roosters medical staff, led by Dr John Orchard, have long been the champions of treating concussions with the seriousness they deserve. There is no way they’d allow The Matrix to play if he wasn’t 100 per cent.
