Wong benched against Broncos

Young Fiji Bati second-row forward Siua Wong has been shifted to the Sydney Roosters reserve bench in the match against the Brisbane Broncos in Round 22 of NRL on Thursday.

Wong started from the Roosters interchange however, coach Head Coach Trent Robinson while putting the similar line-up from last week’s match has reshuffled the interchange set.

Nathan Brown reverts to the bench with Wong dropped back to the extended reserves.

The return of Victor Radley at lock, after he missed last week with hamstring tightness, is the only change to the side that got the job done against the Titans.
