Fitzgibbon hopeful of Roosters offer

Sydney Roosters captain Craig Fitzgibbon says he is hopeful he will receive an offer that will allow him to stay at the club beyond 2006.

Fitzgibbon has been linked with new NRL club Gold Coast but says he would be silly to turn his back on seven years work at the Roosters. The skipper says the club is confident it can overcome the drama of announcements by Ryan Cross and Adrian Morley that they will be leaving the Roosters and press for a place in the top eight.
