Sydney Roosters

Robinson ref attack more than a diversion

Forthright: Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson.

It would be easy to believe Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson was just trying to deflect from his team's poor start to the season and the return of Mitchell Pearce next weekend if he hadn't given referee Ben Cummins a piece of his mind as they walked up the tunnel at fulltime of Monday's ANZAC Day loss to St George Illawarra.

Roosters duo to escape judiciary charges

No case to answer: Ben Cummins places Dylan Napa of the Roosters on report on Monday.

Sydney Roosters forwards Dylan Napa and Kane Evans are expected to escape charges from the NRL match review committee over the controversial incidents in Monday's Anzac Day match that prompted coach Trent Robinson to launch a scathing attack on the NRL bunker and referee Ben Cummins.

Roosters keen to lure golden son

Wanted man: Sonny Bill Williams.

It's hard to say no to Roosters chairman Nick Politis , and when the Roosters make one final play for Sonny Bill Williams, the club will be banking on their  friendship  to make a difference. 

Diggers and footballers to be honoured

Day to remember: St George Illawarra's Jack de Belin (right).

Like so many others who will be at the ground, St George Illawarra's Jack de Belin will spare a thought for loved ones who served their nation when the solemn strains of the Last Post sound at Moore Park before Monday's traditional Anzac Day NRL match kicks off.
