After the injuries at the start of the season things have turned around and they have now won four on the trot. And players are fighting for a place in the run on side.
Both Craig Fitzgibbon and Chris Flannery were left out of the side last Saturday to play the Melbourne Storm.
During the game Michael Crocker returned to the field despite a shoulder injury because Justin Holbrook, Simon Bonetti and Peter Cusack were all out of the game. "I wasn't staying off", Crocker explained earlier this week. "At half time we already had three players off and I was the kicker and dummy half. I was struggling but nowhere near as bad as the others and the Storm were right in the game".
The Roosters then went on to win the game 34-6.
And look forward to the away game in Round 11 against The Parramatta Eels.
