Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has named his mandatory 21-man squad to face the St George Illawarra Dragons at the Sydney Cricket Ground for the traditional Anzac Day clash.

Luke Keary (concussion) has been ruled out. Latrell Mitchell has shifted to five-eighth in Keary's absence and replaced in the centres by the returning Joseph Manu (suspension).

The Roosters have received a timely boost in the front row however with prop Siosiua Taukeiaho and hooker Jake Friend named to return.

Victor Radley moves from dummy half to lock, with Zane Tetevano to come off the bench. Lindsay Collins is 18th man and Josh Curran hasn't been named.

 Lachlan Lam also replaces Sam Verrills in the 17.
