SYDNEY - The Sydney Roosters have named experienced fullback Anthony Minichiello captain for the 2013 NRL season.

Minichiello beat out the likes of NSW State of Origin halfback Mitchell Pearce and Kiwi Test star Jared Waerea-Hargreaves for the role, those two joining Jake Friend and Boyd Cordner as vice-captains.

Minichiello joined the Roosters in 1997 and made his first-grade debut with the club in 2000, going on to play 251 top-grade matches.

"I'm so proud to represent the Roosters. To be named captain of the club I love so much means the absolute world to me," Minichiello said in a statement.
