Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson has named his side for the clash with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Allianz Stadium on Friday night.

The Roosters have made one change to their side that went down to the Melbourne Storm last weekend.

They welcome back halfback Mitchell Pearce who has been named to start in the number seven jersey after sitting on the sideline with a hamstring injury he sustained in their win over the Brisbane Broncos in round 24.

His return to the staring side will see Jackson Hastings move to the bench and Suaia Matagi named as 18th man.

The two sides have met twice already in 2015 with the Roosters taking the points on both occasions.
