Looks like the Roosters will be down another starter.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Luke O’Donnell is out for the clash against the Raiders after succumbing to a flu — perhaps brought on by the shittiest of Winter days on Thursday.
The Tele reckons Sam Moa will come into the starting squad with Tinirau Arona — who hasn’t played since Round One’s loss to the Rabbitohs — set to snare the vacated spot on the bench.
O’Donnell has been on fire recently and has helped set the foundation — along with this week’s co-captain Jared Waerea-Hargreaves — for the Roosters from the kickoff. He’s run for over 100 metres in nine of his past 10 games and missed just 6 tackles during that span.
