Maloney shines for patient Roosters

JAMES MALONEY proved to the Sydney Roosters faithful in Saturday night's Foundation Cup trial against Wests Tigers that the long wait for him to wear the tri-colours was worth it.

Maloney signed to join the Roosters in 2011 when he still had a year on his contract with the New Zealand Warriors but he showed enough on the rain-sodden Sydney Football Stadium during his team's victory to suggest he could be a stabilising force for a side which, occasionally, appeared at sixes and sevens last season.

He combined well in the halves with Mitchell Pearce to set up play, but he added an extra dimension to the Roosters with his boot as winger Daniel Tupou could testify.
