Roosters to
wait on Fitzgibbon

The Sydney Roosters are hopeful Craig Fitzgibbon will recover from a knee injury in time for Saturday night's NRL match against Cronulla at Aussie Stadium.

Fitzgibbon isn't expected to train with the side this week but coach Ricky Stuart is confident the Test forward will play against the seventh-placed Sharks. The Roosters have lost their past five games to drop from eighth to 12th on the NRL table.
