2013 NRL Premiership
By W D Nicolson - February 28, 2013
Last Year: 13th with a 8-15-1 (-164) record and 21 points.
Brian Smith was the fall-guy after failing to get the Roosters to kick-on after their 2010 Grand Final appearance... the keys have been handed to Trent Robinson but expectations might be higher in his first year than they ever were under Smith.

James Maloney is a sensational purchase because he makes things happen in attack and the club wasn't finished there - also adding Michael Jennings, Luke O'Donnell and a bloke called Sonny Bill Williams in a range of incredible signing coups. Maloney is a big upgrade over Braith Anasta and Sonny Bill is a match winner in the pack - the Roosters should hit pay-dirt from some if not all of these new faces.
