A brilliant second half performance has seen the Sydney Roosters Holden Cup side run out 34-20 winners and secure equal second place on the competition ladder.


The home side was behind 14-0 after just thirty minutes despite dominating field position.


A runaway try at the end of the first half was a sign of things to come as the Tricolours run away with the victory.


The visitors took full advantage of every opportunity that came their way early on, three quick tries putting the Tricolours on notice.


Despite dominating for the rest of the first half, consistent handling errors let the home side down.


It wasn't until the final minute of the first half that the Tricolours finally crossed the line.


A nice offload from Nene Macdonald set up Brendan Elliot who beat the fullback and the buzzer to send the home side in to the break behind by eight.


Returning to the NYC after a couple of weeks in the top grade, Samisoni Langi was having a blinder and he looked a class above when he set up Jack Siejka with a well timed short ball to finally put the home side on a roll.


Coming off the bench Tuiala Togitasi powered over soon after to hand the Roosters the lead for the first time in the match.


Showing why they are in contention the Tricolours then powered away with a great solo effort from in form hooker Alex Thomas.


The two sides went try for try after that but the match never seemed in doubt as the Tricolours held on to run out convincing winners.
