Prop Mark O’Meley will make his debut for the Sydney Roosters this Saturday night against the Parramatta Eels at Bluetongue Stadium in Gosford. A regular site on the sidelines in recent times, the talented O’Meley and the Roosters would certainly hope that Shrek doesn’t remain a candidate for the most injured player of the year. 

O’Meley is excited at the prospect of playing his first game in the tricolours, especially in his home town.

“I’m from the Central Coast so I am really looking forward to this game,” he said after getting the nod to play from Brad Fittler.

“It’s been a big pre season and I am looking forward to having fun with the boys on the field. It’s a great coincidence that the game is in Gosford, it’s going to be good.”

After spending the majority of the pre season in the club’s injured group with head physio Tony Ayoub, O’Meley is confident that his problematic Achilles will be right to go on Saturday night.

“I’ve had the Achilles problem for a while but once it is warm it is fine. Being in the rehab group is mainly a preventative measure and I am still running several times a week with the boys.”

O’Meley’s addition will be the final piece in the puzzle for the for Roosters forward pack, with Danny Nutley also starting on the bench after missing out on last week’s Foundation Cup.
