Roosters to play in World Club Series

The Sydney Roosters have reportedly agreed to play at the World Club Series in England, joining North Queensland and Brisbane in the February tournament.

The Tricolours will be a part of the series which pits the top three sides from the NRL and the Super League against each other.

“It will be a tremendous start to the season,” Roosters chief executive Brian Canavan told NewsCorp Australia.

“The players get together and live with each other. It’s a group setting which is great for the players and the club. And it’s a great promotion for the club.”

NRL premiers North Queensland will battle the winner of this weekend’s Super League grand final – Wigan or Leeds – in the World Club Challenge.

The third Super League team competing in the February match ups is expected to be announced over the weekend.
