Frank-Paul Nuuausala
Close to new deal

Damaging back-rower Frank-Paul Nuuausala has begun talks to extend his deal at the Sydney Roosters.

A rugged forward who can bend the line, Nuuausala is a key man in the Roosters’ pack and has started the season in strong form.

The Roosters also have forwards Mitch Aubusson, Luke O’Donnell and Sonny Bill Williams off contract at the end of the year.
