Roosters welcome back Crichton and Tupouniua; BMM replaces Su’A in clash against Dragons
The Sydney Roosters had a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to team news this week. While they welcomed back Angus Crichton and Sitili Tupouniua, they also had to make a change due to injury.
Crichton and Tupouniua return to the lineup
Crichton and Tupouniua had been out for a few weeks due to injury, but both were able to recover in time for their match against the St. George Illawarra Dragons. These two have been important pieces in the Roosters’ forward pack, and their return will be a huge boost for the team. Crichton has been particularly impressive this season with an average of 97 running metres per game. Tupouniua is also a hard worker on the field, with six charges and seven tackle busts in just four games.
BMM replaces Su’A
Unfortunately, the Roosters had to make a change due to injury. Jaydn Su’A is out with a hamstring injury, so Nat Butcher has taken his place in the starting lineup. Butcher has played well so far this season, but the Roosters also needed someone to fill in on the bench. That’s where BMM (Mitchell Aubusson) comes in. The veteran forward has played in over 300 NRL games and will be a valuable addition to the Roosters’ bench.
Preview of the Roosters vs Dragons match
The Roosters will be looking to bounce back after a few disappointing losses, but they’ll have to do it without Su’A. They’ll also have to contend with a Dragons team that has been playing well lately. Dragons halfback Ben Hunt has been particularly impressive, with three tries and three try assists in his last three games.
However, the Roosters have some star power of their own. James Tedesco has been a standout this season with an average of 149 running metres per game, while Luke Keary has five try assists in just four games. It should be an entertaining match, and a win for the Roosters would be a big confidence boost.
