The Sydney Roosters have announced that up-and-coming forward Lindsay Collins has signed a three-year extension with the club which will see him there until at least the end of 2022.

“I’m really proud to be a Rooster. Since day one, everyone at the Club has made me feel welcome. This is my home and it’s where I want to build a career,” Collins told the club’s website.

“I know that there’s still a lot of improvement in me and I’m excited to keep learning from Robbo, the coaches and the senior players and to keep working towards securing my opportunity to play some good football for the club,” he added.

Roosters Head Coach, Trent Robinson, was pleased to have the young forward locked in to the Club’s long-term plans.

“Lindsay’s commitment to the team is tireless and he brings a really good energy to everyone he does on and off the training field,” Robinson added.

“It’s great for the Roosters to have Lindsay on board for the next few years and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with him.”

  1. Excellent signing by the Chooks. They let Napa walk for a reason. This bloke Collins is that reason. A pure metre eater with plenty of size. Collins will be the Roosters enforcer one day in the near future

      • Not really if you’ve watched Collins play. He was a more than competant feature in our prelim final vs Souths, and is a mountain of a man. Jared’s been around for a while now, so when it comes to enforcer, Collins is next in line.

      • My emoji button broke mate, I will be taking it down to the emoji shop fixer shop after Christmas some time. But as the great Arnold Swartzenegger on many occasions declared. I’ll be back.

  2. Great. Absolutely number 1 priority after letting go of Napa. Collins will be brilliant for years to come, and is only getting better. We’ve shown faith in him, now he’ll be out to repay that faith by earning a premiership ring by actually playing in a grand finalπŸ˜‚

      • I’ll hold you to that penso πŸ˜‚ 2029? I thought the sharks situation would be what made me laugh the most today, clearly I was mistaken…
        I think we have a class joker aboard Reggies infamous ‘Banter Train’

        • Easts won’t go back to back, their have been better teams than your mob who have won the comp but couldn’t back it up.

          Sure you deserve bragging rights, and rightly so, but your team is not that good to back it up again roosta, talk is cheap, one thing i’ll say , this has been the most interesting off season on record i reckon.

          JWH best enforcer in the game, yeah right, not even close.

        • I’m sorry penso, did I SAY that JWH was the best enforcer in the game? Oh wait, nah I didn’t. I wonder where that thought came from? Funny that…
          Talk is cheap, but at the moment it’s all anyone can offer at the moment. Except of course, if you’re a rabbitoh, where the club’s probably said enough by appointing the fossil πŸ˜‚ I don’t think any Rabbitoh really has a case to argue for the next few years mate

        • Penso, the roosters will have atleast another 2 more premierships befefore your rabbits even make it to a grand final. That must hurt.

  3. Lindsay is going to learn from the best enforcer in JWH and he will be a gun too many mistakes and penalties in Napa πŸΊπŸ”πŸΊπŸ”πŸ†

  4. Glad to see the Back end of Napa, Easts75 spot on….

    As for you other jealous numbnuts, Roosters will win a comp or two in the next 5 years.

    As for the Perth/Ipswich Sharks, not much to say about that….

    Merry Christmas to you all, EVEN the Rooster’s Haters!!!

  5. Penso, JWH if you read any footy news was awarded the NZ best player award. Collins will only benifit playing with this years best enforcer for the next few years. Collins the apprentice will learn his trade in no time.

    I don’t want to appear as a cheeky supporter but this Rooster outfit is more than capable of going back to back on defence alone. Remember last season took nearly an entire year for them to gel. This year our attack will be present from before the the season starts. They are in full mode training for the World Club Challenge Cup. If Cooper Cronkite guided the Roosters home with his mind then what is he going to do when he is fit.

    Remember Penso the Roosters are so powerful that they defeated Souths and Melbourne in the big games this year with only 12 fit players on the field to the oppositions 13. Get the picture mate. Don’t let your hatred of the Chooks get in the way of common sense . Ahahahah
