Roosters welcome Jennings

SYDNEY - The Sydney Roosters are set to welcome back NSW centre Michael Jennings from a back injury for Saturday's crucial round 21 NRL match against St George Illawarra in a massive boost to their flagging premiership hopes.

With Sonny Bill Williams sidelined for a month with a thumb injury, Blues winger Daniel Tupou not due back for at least three weeks due to a back injury and Mitch Aubusson out for two weeks with an ankle complaint, Jennings' return comes at a welcome time for the premiers.

The Roosters have lost two of their last three games to bottom four sides with Jennings out.

The Dragons clash at Allianz Stadium will be his first match since Origin II.

Jennings returned to contact training last week and trained strongly on Monday and Roosters captain Anthony Minichiello indicated he would take the field against the Dragons.

"He is very close. He could be a chance this week," Minichiello said.

"We will just see how he gets through the week and hopefully he will be back on deck.

"We do have some quality players on the sidelines and hopefully we can get those back over the next couple of weeks."
