The career of Sydney Roosters hooker Jake Friend may be on the line after being suspended by his club indefinitely following an altercation with a taxi driver on the weekend.

Friend is due to appear in Waverly Local Court on January 13, but it is unknown whether his club will permanently drop him after C.E.O. Steve Noyce sent him home from training after suspending him from all club duties.

It has been a difficult year off the field for the Roosters with a handful of off-field incidents. It is the third time this year that 20 year old Friend has been involved with an off-field incident.

In March Friend was disqualified from driving for sixteen months after being found guilty of drink-driving. In August he was found guilty of assault.

Despite having three more years left on his contract, Friend might be dropped from the club following an attempt to change it's image. The Roosters ran a mock court trial last week to show the players that each small action will have a consequence.

It might be a matter of days before we hear about the consequence for the actions of Jake Friend.
