Roosters sack Friend

7:09 pm on 18 December 2009

The Sydney Roosters have terminated hooker Jake Friend's National Rugby League contract after his latest alcohol-related indiscretion.

The club's decision comes after Friend was charged last weekend when police said he behaved aggressively towards officers.

It was the third alcohol-related incident Friend's been involved in this year after a drink-driving conviction and a charge for an alleged nightclub assault.
