The hype around Joseph Suaalii is about to go to another level after broadcasters committed to airing his much-anticipated trial match on Saturday.
Kayo – which is already broadcasting the other eight NRL trials on Saturday and Sunday – has opted to also show the North Sydney Bears v Canberra Raiders reserve grade clash live in order to cash in on the Suaalii hype, while the event will also be streamed on nrl.com, whose feed will be syndicated on the NSWRL website.
The Roosters have opted not to play Suaalii in the top grade in their final hit-out against Canberra on Saturday at Seiffert Oval, with coach Trent Robinson expected to name his best side, except for the injured Luke Keary, Sam Verrills and Victor Radley. Instead, Suaalii will run out for feeder team North Sydney in the curtain-raiser at 2pm.
Mindful of shielding Suaalii from the pressure and expectation surrounding his first appearance for the club, the Roosters hoped a Bears game at Queanbeyan would be the perfect opportunity to avoid the fanfare.
