TEAMS NAMED FOR ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA DRAGONS VS SYDNEY ROOSTERS, ROUND 8, 2016

Sydney Roosters

It’s been touted that Jared Waerea-Hargreaves — sidelined since August last year — and Boyd Cordner would both be named to play the Anzac Day clash versus the Dragons, but neither made the Tuesday lists… though we should all watch this space. The next time the Roosters play a game in the same form as the team they named on Tuesday will be the first time since Round One.

Connor Watson has been named in the 17 with Abraham Papalii 18th man.

1 Latrell Mitchell

5 Shaun Kenny-Dowall
6 Jayden Nikorima

13 Isaac Liu

St George-Illawarra Dragons

You know the Dragons aren’t going well when a win against the Titans is considered an upset, and when they head into a game versus a 1-6 team as underdogs. But the Dragons have really struggled to score points this year, coming up with two lopsided donuts and having not won a game when Benji Marshall suits up — though the Kiwi halfback has not been named after missing last week’s win, with Josh McCrone again named to start.

Regardless, they have two more wins than the Roosters have been able to muster, and the Anzac Day clash is always an event in which each side typically turns up to put on a show.

1 Josh Dugan
