'Get some facts': Trent Robinson fires up over Angus Crichton questions
Don’t ask Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson if there’s something to Angus Crichton’s role change this year.
The 23-year-old who made a name for himself with the Rabbitohs and the Blues as an edge back-rower has been used off the bench in the middle in recent weeks in his first year with the Roosters.
Crichton and his coach have assured media it is simply about developing the young forward’s game and helping the team as they look to bounce back from a three-point loss to the North Queensland Cowboys – the reigning premiers’ fifth defeat from their last seven matches.
However, Robinson is getting sick of the speculation that Crichton isn’t pleased with the switch, firing up when asked if his player will see out his contract with the club.
Crichton signed a three-year deal with the Roosters that sees him tied to the club until the end of the 2021 season.
