Fresh from a confidence-boosting Auckland Nines triumph last month, the Sydney Roosters target a winning start in the NRL on Saturday night against last season’s surprise packets the Gold Coast Titans.
The Roosters were crippled by injury problems from the outset and they never really recovered throughout the course of the season, registering just six wins and finishing in a lowly 15th position – ahead only of the embattled Newcastle Knights.
But Trent Robinson and his team will be determined to wipe the slate clean in 2017, and the Roosters certainly have the team to do just that.
Explosive rising star Latrell Mitchell has switched from fullback to the centres to accommodate new recruit Michael Gordon, while Mitchell Pearce will be looking to re-establish himself as one of the game’s leading halfbacks.
Blake Ferguson, Shaun Kenny-Dowall and Daniel Tupou add immense strike power out wide, while Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Boyd Cordner and Dylan Napa provide plenty of muscle and grunt through the middle.
I think it could be a big year for the Roosters, but I’m not so sure about the Titans.
Gold Coast, in my opinion, exceeded expectations by finishing in eighth spot and playing finals football last season, and they will be hard-pressed to replicate that effort in 2017.
Much will depend on the fitness of Jarryd Hayne and if he can return to the sort of NRL form that saw him claim Dally M Medal honours – but again, I have my doubts.
Titans fans will be ecstatic to see Kane Elgey back after a year on the sidelines ,while the addition of former Storm star Kevin Proctor to the forward pack is a superb one.
The Titans have a solid record against the Roosters, but I just can’t see the Tricolours losing this one. They’re refreshed and recharged and ready for a successful season with a team brimming with International and Origin stars. I think they’ll have far too much firepower for the Titans on Saturday night.
