Although 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.
Coming off three consecutive minor premierships, the Roosters suffered a stunning fall from grace in 2016. Inopportune injuries and suspensions dogged the side as they registered just six wins for the season, finishing in second last.
