Sydney Roosters is a professional rugby league
football club based in the Eastern Suburbs of
Sydney, Australia. The club competes in the National
Rugby League and is one of the most successful
clubs in Australian rugby league history, having
won twelve New South Wales Rugby League and National
Rugby League titles, and several other competitions.
Only the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the St. George
Dragons have won more premierships. The club holds
the records for longest winning streak, the biggest
scoring margin in a grand final (8 tries, 7 goals)
and the second greatest margin of victory in Australian
rugby league history. The Roosters is the only
team to have played in each and every season at
the elite level.
The club was founded in 1908 in Paddington, Sydney,
under the name Eastern Suburbs; in 1995 the name
was changed to the Sydney City Roosters and, in
2000, to simply the Sydney Roosters. The Bondi
Junction and Moore Park-based Roosters have a
long-standing and fierce rivalry with other Sydney-based
clubs, especially the Rabbitohs, a fellow foundation
club based in neighbouring Redfern. (Credit:
