Sydney Roosters

Sydney RoostersAlthough they are one of two foundation clubs still present in the NRL today, the Sydney Roosters are the only side in the history of Australian Rugby League to play in every season since their inception in 1908 as Eastern Suburbs. The Roosters have won 13 Premierships with their most recent being in 2013.

In 2015 the Roosters won their third-straight Minor Premiership but lost in the first week of the finals to the Melbourne Storm. A bounceback win against the Canterbury Bulldogs saw the side progress to the preliminary finals, where they were eliminated by the Brisbane Broncos.

2016 saw the club start poorly after Mitchell Pearce was banned for eight games for a lewd incident involving a dog.

The club never recovered from the rocky start to the season, finishing second last with only six wins to their name.
