Roosters name strong side for Foundation Cup

Foundation Cup 2008Sydney Roosters coach Brad Fittler is wasting no time in unleashing his big guns in 2008, with the Sydney side announcing a near full strength lineup to take on the Wests Tigers this Saturday.

The expectations are growing rapidly around the new look Roosters outfit, primarily around the recruitment of Willie Mason and the return of match winning fullback Anthony Minichiello. While new boy Mason might be in trouble for piddling in public, he is set to don the new colours and join fellow piddler Anthony Toupu in the second row for the charity clash.

With a full off-season under new coach Brad Fittler, we feel the Roosters will play a much more confident brand of football and will have the added punch with the new signings and prominent players returning from injury. Half Mitchell Pearce should have much more room to work in with the forwards in front of him certainly packing some power, with Mini chiming into the backline it really could be the Roosters of old.
