Sydney Roosters co-captain Jake Friend is on track to recover from a heavy concussion to face St George Illawarra on Anzac Day.

Friend was injured in the Roosters' 6-0 NRL win over Canterbury last week, but is expected to play alongside the injured Sio Siua Taukeiaho on Wednesday at Allianz Stadium.

"(Jake)'s been really good. I think it's a five-to-six day protocol so we will finish that off tomorrow. But he's on track," Robinson said.
