Biography

Two years ago, Roger was starring for Otahuhu College in the NZRL’s National Secondary Schools’ tournament. From fullback, he captained his school to an upset title win and he picked up a contract with the Sydney Roosters. His progress at the club since has been rapid.

 

Last year, Roger started in the Roosters under 20s, progressed to their reserve grade team mid-season and in round 21 he made his NRL debut against the Gold Coast. He has been a regular for the Roosters on the right wing this year and in April was named in the Kiwis squad for the ANZAC Test in Canberra, where he was 18th man.

 

With footwork that dazzles even the best of defenders, and great skills in the air, Roger is one to really watch in this tournament. He played for the Junior Kiwis in 2012 and was named the NZRL’s Junior Player of the Year that year also.
