Roosters almost full-strength for Wigan clash

Reigning NRL champions Sydney Roosters have named their squad for the World Club Challenge against Wigan.

The Tricolours will be missing just two of the players that lined-up against Manly in the 2013 Grand Final, with the retired Luke O’Donnell and the injured Roger Tuivasa-Sheck the only absentees.

Shaun Kenny-Dowall will deputise on the wing for Kiwi compatriot Tuivasa-Sheck, whilst off-season signing Remi Casty is set to make his Roosters debut.

Saturday’s World Club Challenge, the first on Australian soil in 20 years, kicks-off at 8pm local time (9am in the UK).

Roosters squad: Anthony Minichiello (c), Daniel Tupou, Michael Jennings, Mitchell Aubusson, Shaun Kenny-Dowall, James Maloney, Mitchell Pearce, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Jake Friend, Sam Moa, Boyd Cordner, Sonny Bill Williams, Frank-Paul Nuuausala. Interchange: Daniel Mortimer, Aidan Guerra, Dylan Napa, Remi Casty, Kane Evans, Taane Milne, Kurt Kara.
