Roosters to compete for U/18 National Title
Tomorrow is a huge day for the club, with the Roosters U/18s SG Ball side competing for the national title when they line up against the Townsville Stingers at 1300SMILES Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Roosters will travel north after beating Penrith 34-30 in golden point extra-time thriller in the SG Ball decider at the weekend.
Despite trailing by twenty points early in the match the young Roosters showed great spirit to fight back and win the state final to qualify for tomorrow night’s match.
A big task lays ahead for the young Roosters, eleven NYC Cowboys are represented in the Stingers side who beat Norths earlier this month to win the Mal Meninga cup and qualify for the National Final.
