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."

Will the Warriors be playing finals footy this year?

For sure. They'll dominate in the last three rounds.

It won't be easy but they'll definitely make the eight.

I can't see it. That loss to Newcastle will hurt them.

They are no chance. They've been disappointing of late.
