Taylor back with Roosters after Tigers dumping

DUMPED Tigers coach Jason Taylor will get the chance for some revenge on his former club next month as part of the Sydney Roosters coaching team.

Taylor is returning to the Tricolours as Trent Robinson's assistant after previously filling the role and helping guide them to the 2013 premiership.

The Roosters and Tigers, now with Ivan Cleary at the helm, will clash in round at Campbelltown on June 11.

Taylor, 46, replaces Justin Holbrook who has been signed to coach St Helens in the Super League.

The announcement means Taylor is set to reunite with outgoing Tigers fullback James Tedesco, who signed a four-year deal at the foundation club from next season.
