With the great side they have currently, they must be spending right up to the cap one would think.

Tend to agree - or else they are hoping for an increase.

$BW is worth quite a bit, and they have a few others.

He's heard the rumours and admits they were a concern, but Shaun Kenny-Dowall says he has no intentions of leaving the Sydney Roosters. The New Zealand international centre is one of the NRL club's longest-serving players having first linked up with the Roosters eight years ago after moving to Sydney as a backpacker from across the Tasman. However, there's been speculation the club have been shopping him around to other teams despite being under contract for a further two years.

He needs to find some form though. He's nothing like the player of a couple of seasons ago.

The Sydney Roosters are pleased to announce the signing of highly sought-after Australian schoolboy, Jackson Hastings.

With a number of NRL clubs pursuing his services, the Roosters have signed the exciting 17 year-old for three seasons, commencing in 2014.

“The Roosters were the team I grew up supporting so I’m stoked to be joining the club. I’ve still got a lot to learn and I’m excited to be joining guys like Mitchell Pearce and James Maloney who I can learn so much from,” said Hastings.

His grand father, who my old man played against would be turning in his grave with the way $BW is carrying on. BIll Woolsley is and was something of a legend of the Auckland RL.....well, part legend part mad man but a legend none the less. A humble man....unlike his goose of a grand son.

SONNY Bill Williams has a place at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in his sights after signing a two-year contract with New Zealand rugby.

The New Zealand Rugby Union announced Williams, 28, will play for the two-time defending Super Rugby champion Chiefs from 2015 and revealed the cross code star is also eyeing a sevens rugby berth at the 2016 Olympic Games.

Williams was a key part of the Chiefs' championship-winning side in 2012 but wasn't involved in this year's repeat after returning to rugby league.

Williams produced a standout 2013 season for the champion Sydney Roosters and in October confirmed he would play for them again in next year's NRL.

It was widely expected he would then return to New Zealand, where a place in the All Blacks' 2015 World Cup squad will be high on his priority list.

New Zealand Rugby Union chief executive Steve Tew says Williams has said during negotiations that he will pursue a place in New Zealand's sevens rugby campaign the following year, when the abbreviated sport makes its Olympic debut.

Dureau & Stapleton sign on for remainder of 2014

Mon 30th June, 01:30PM



The Sydney Roosters have today announced the signings of two players for the remainder of the 2014 NRL season.

Halfback Scott Dureau joins the Roosters from French Super League club Catalans Dragons, on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 27 year-old was named Super League’s Player of the Year in 2012 and joins the Roosters as back-up in the halves, following the club’s release of Daniel Mortimer earlier this month. Dureau made his NRL debut with the Newcastle Knights in 2007 and played 42 games before joining Catalans in 2011.

The Roosters have also signed Nathan Stapleton from the Cronulla Sharks for the remainder of the season, with the 24 year-old recruited as cover in the outside backs following the departure of Tautau Moga. Stapleton has played 61 NRL matches since making his debut in 2009 and can play centre, wing and fullback.

Both players have joined the club effective immediately.
