Fitzgibbon to captain for first

Australian rep Craig Fitzgibbon will officially captain Sydney Roosters for the first time in Sunday's trial match against St George Illawarra at WIN Stadium.

Coach Ricky Stuart has named an imposing line up for the final trial match, with injured fullback Anthony Minichiello the only first grade regular missing from the 19-man squad. Star recruits Braith Anasta and Ashley Harrison will again line up for the tri colours after last weekend's thrashing of Manly.

Roosters: Amos Roberts, SAM Perrett, Ryan Cross, Iosia Soliola, Joel Monaghan, Braith Anasta, Brett Finch, Adrian Morley, Craig Wing, Craig Fitzgibbon (C), Anthony Tupou, Chris Flannery, Ashley Harrison.
Interchange: Michael Lett, Jamie Soward, David Shillington, Lopini Paea, Shane Shackleton, Steve Meredith.
