One-club man Mitchell Aubusson has signed a one-year extension which will give him the chance to become the third triple centurion in Sydney Roosters history.

Aubusson has made 284 Telstra Premiership appearances in the red, white and blue over 13 seasons in the NRL.

He made his debut with the Tricolours in the opening round of the 2007 season and is the third most-capped player in the club’s 111-year history behind Luke Ricketson (301 games) and Anthony Minichiello (302 games).

Roosters may still have enough for Jai Arrow. After a careful check it looks like they may have the money in the Cap.

10 - 16 loss to Souths.

A game that didn't really matter - but would have been good to win.

May see these two in the same Final now.

Sam Burgess and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves are each facing a one-match ban after they were charged for offences in the Rabbitohs' win over the Roosters on Friday night.

Burgess has been charged for grade-one contrary conduct for pulling the hair of Roosters rookie Billy Smith in the 22nd minute while Waerea-Hargreaves has been handed a grade-one careless high tackle charge.

Waerea-Hargreaves was placed on report for his 74th-minute tackle on Liam Knight which left the Rabbitohs prop bloody and dazed.

Each player is facing a one-match ban regardless of whether they submit an early guilty plea or contest their charge at the judiciary.

Both charges were ineligble for a financial penalty due to both players having been previously found guilty of at least two charges this season.

Roosters prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will challenge his tripping charge at the NRL judiciary in order to avoid a one-match ban following Friday's qualifying final.

Waerea-Hargreaves, who beat a high tackle charge at the judiciary last week, was charged with tripping Rabbitohs centre James Roberts in the 71st minute of the Roosters' 30-6 qualifying final victory on Friday night.

The base penalty for the charge is 100 points (one game), but Waerea-Hargreaves has loading and carry-over points from previous offences.

That leaves him with the option of taking the early plea for 120 points, or risk 160 points if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.

A one-game suspension would rule the premiership-winning prop out of the Roosters' qualifying final. He will front the judiciary on Tuesday night.

Sydney Roosters enforcer Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will miss his side's crucial preliminary final clash against either Melbourne or Parramatta after being found guilty of tripping at the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night.

Waerea-Hargreaves, who had his fourth visit to NRL HQ to fight his sixth charge of the season, argued he slipped when his leg reached out to make contact with Rabbitohs centre James Roberts.

But the three-man panel of Mal Cochrane, Bob Linder and Sean Garlick ruled against the 30-year-old, instead agreeing with NRL counsel member Peter McGrath that the motion was of a reckless nature.

Waerea-Hargreaves would've escaped the citing with a monetary fine if he had a clean record but his previous charges and carry-over points means he will miss one match.
