In- form Roberts faces change

Townsville Bulletin - - RUGBY LEAGUE -

GOLD Coast five- eighth Ty­rone Roberts ad­mits his ex­cel­lent form might not be enough to ex­tend his ten­ure in the role.

The ver­sa­tile 26- year- old has formed an ef­fec­tive al­liance with good mate Ash­ley Tay­lor in the halves since in­jury to first- choice No. 6 Kane El­gey. But with El­gey on the cusp of a re­turn, Roberts knows his role may change soon.

Roberts is named to part­ner Tay­lor against the Penrith Pan­thers on Satur­day, with El­gey named in the ex­tended squad on Tues­day.

Coach Neil Henry said El­gey was likely to be given an­other week to re­cover from a ster­num in­jury, but just where he fits into the puz­zle is yet to be de­ter­mined.

It’s a mys­tery to Roberts, who has played full­back, hooker, five- eighth and in­ter­change this sea­son.

He said Henry had not spo­ken to him about his plans, but felt as if he had proved him­self at No. 6.
