6:52 am on 21 June 2009

The Sydney Roosters captain Braith Anasta will miss the remainder of the National Rugby League season after fracturing his ankle in Saturday night's 24-22 loss to North Queensland in Townsville.

The Cowboys held off the fast-finishing Roosters to register the heart-stopping win, the Roosters letting two golden opportunities to win the game slip in the final three minutes and slipping to their sixth straight loss.
