Ryles hoping for success

Roosters prop Jason Ryles is hopeful the club can go one better this year and land an NRL premiership.

Ryles, 31, has come to an agreement with coach Brian Smith to play beyond next season providing his form warrants a new contract.

And after playing an integral role in the club’s march to the NRL Grand Final in 2010, Ryles says he hopes to help the Roosters collected their first premiership since 2002.

“I’ve got to see how we’re going this year,” Ryles told The Daily Telegraph.

“[But] I’ve got a bit of an agreement with Smithy that if I’m feeling okay and playing okay then we’ll talk about it then.”

“I’m just playing it by ear now. I’m just still trying to chase that elusive premiership.

“But while ever we’ve got guys like Pearce and Carney here I want to play as long as I can. I’ll be doing everything I can to look after myself on and off the field and see what happens.”

Ryles made the return to the NRL after a one-year stint in Super League with Catalans Dragons, and says he is feeling fine, despite undergoing a gruelling pre-season training schedule.

He added: “So touch wood I’m feeling okay and hopefully it translates into a few good games for the Roosters early in the season.”
