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 2014 the Roosters again reached the NRL finals, finishing the regular season in first place on points differential (both the Roosters and Sea Eagles finished the season on 36 points). The Roosters lost their opening elimination final to the Penrith Panthers 19-18, however progressed through the semi finals where they controversially defeated the Cowboys 31-30. The side was eventually knocked out of the 2014 finals series by eventual premiers the South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-20 in the preliminary finals.
