Roosters make call on Cronk for NRL GF


//

Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has named injured playmaker Cooper Cronk on an extended bench for Sunday’s NRL grand final, replacing the halfback with Mitch Aubusson in the starting side for the clash against Melbourne.

Cronk suffered a 'severe' rotator cuff injury in the first half against the Rabbitohs, but played on through the second half despite being unable to kick or run the ball.

Mitch Aubusson's versatility has been a plus for the Roosters.

The Roosters welcome Latrell Mitchell back into the starting team from suspension but Dylan Napa will come off the bench after returning from his ban.

In other moves, Paul Momirovski moves to the bench resulting in Lindsay Collins sliding down the reserves list.

Cronk highly unlikely to play.

Speaking earlier this week, Cronk said pain wasn’t the issue when assessing whether he’ll play on Sunday.

"Pain is what it is, you make it out to be as much as you want it to be. I'll deal with it," Cronk said.

"It's a step process. (I need to be) passing, kicking, tackling, just being able to functionally move it.

"The pain, I'm not superhuman, but the pain I'll be able to deal with.

"It's just whether I can functionally move it."
