England mentor Steve McNamara has joined the coaching staff of NRL premiers the Sydney Roosters.

McNamara has signed a two-year deal and will join Jason Taylor and Craig Fitzgibbon as assistants to coach Trent Robinson, the Roosters announce on Saturday.

The 42-year-old former Braford Bulls boss will continue as England coach, a role he's had since 2010.

McNamara replaces Paul Green at the Roosters after the former halfback took a head coaching position at North Queensland.

Robinson is thrilled to have the Englishman on board.

"I have known Steve a long time and he will do a great job rounding out our team, alongside Jason Taylor and Craig Fitzgibbon," Robinson said in a club statement.

"Steve is a coach with huge integrity and I'm looking forward to him applying his knowledge and contributing to our development at the Sydney Roosters in 2014."
