Teen sensation Joseph Suaalii will make his NRL debut for Sydney Roosters this weekend.
In March, the 17-year-old rising star was granted exemption by the ARL Commission to play in the NRL before his 18th birthday.
And on Saturday, Suaalii will make his NRL bow when the Roosters take on Brisbane Broncos at the SCG.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson said: “It’s been really clear to all of us that Joseph has been ready for the last few weeks, and it’s time for him to start his journey in the NRL this weekend.”
The 6ft 5in, 98kg centre or full-back has impressed whilst playing for North Sydney Bears in reserve-grade this year and on Saturday will make his NRL debut for the Roosters.
