Mini's Grand Final Week diary
Stay updated about the movements of the Sydney Roosters in the lead-up to Sunday's NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final via captain Anthony Minichiello's exclusive Grand Final Week diary.
Monday was a big day for the tricolours, with the official team photo (quite a challenge when there are 30 people involved – and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves is fretting over his hair!), followed by interviews with the hungry media.
Tuesday saw Mini head into Roosters HQ for a massage and a catch-up with the club staff who work so hard behind the scenes; then it was off to the Dally M Awards to cheer on winners Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (Winger of the Year), Boyd Cordner (Second-Rower of the Year), James Maloney (Top Point-Scorer) and Trent Robinson (Coach of the Year).
Wednesday saw important cog Mitchell Pearce rejoin team training after missing a few days with a cold, and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves continued to pester his captain.
