Sydney Roosters coach Trent Robinson has indicated out-of-favour playmaker Jackson Hastings is set to leave the Tricolours after the NRL season.

Still contracted for 2017, Hastings, son of Roosters great Kevin, appeared to have a big future at the Roosters after the club opted not to re-sign James Maloney at the end of last year.
The Roosters had backed Hastings to be a long-term halves partner to Mitchell Pearce.

But Hastings has been in and out of Robinson's under-performing side this season and spent the last month languishing in the under-20s, with Robinson preferring fellow youngster Connor Watson at five eighth alongside Pearce.
"Jackson is playing 20s. He has been playing well. He is still spending time with us but we made a decision to have a look at Connor (Watson) at five-eighth and to see how he can play in that position," Robinson said on Wednesday.

"I have been happy with Connor. I am still talking to Jackson about his game and watching his game.

"We will decide week-to-week on what we need but at the moment we feel Connor is our best option there."

The Roosters have recruited South Sydney premiership winning five-eighth Luke Keary for next season.

As a result Robinson said Hastings' future at the club was under discussion.

"That is stuff that we are discussing with Jackson and his manager. He knows where the lay of the land is with us. He is still contracted for next year," Robinson said.

"It is tough as far as the position goes but he is a quality player and he will have a future in the NRL.

"We recruited Luke to play as a five-eighth and for Connor next year it will be a utility role (to start with) and hopefully he will push his way into a starting role."

Hastings has been linked to a return to his former club St George Illawarra.

Shouldn't the new coach get a say in who we sign?

We could sign Andrew Johns second coming it just won't matter until we have someone with a plan and ability to lead a team to success.

No new coach is coming till at least 2018.

If the board came out and said they back Mary then I would have some hope he would be gone thats how it works in the EPL.

Pleeeeeeease ! Anyone other then the greatest football brain in rugby league today .
It would be far too much for our team to adjust to . Going from one extreme to the other , from one coach who knows Jack Shat , to one who knows Jack Everything !

Exactly! Let's hope tonight is Mary's last game as coach of the Dragons. I'd like Cleary to take over and for him to make decisions on our playing roster in the same way that other first grade coaches do.
