The Sydney Roosters dominated the Penrith Panthers all over the park, winning 32-12 at Allianz Stadium.
After leading 18-0 at the break the Tricolours were determined to finish the game off and they did so convincingly against the competition joint leaders.
In the unfamiliar position of centre, Aidan Guerra opened the scoring, the Queenslander finished off a quick back line movement to top off a strong start to the match.
Temporarily filling in at hooker for Jake Friend who was being tested for concussion, Aubusson then wrestled over from dummy half to extend the lead to two converted tries.
The Tricolours thoroughly dominated the opposition the entire opening half and after having a Pearce try disallowed the home side finally got the third they deserved.
A clever pass out of dummy half set up Remi Casty, the Frenchman storming over for his second NRL try.
The Panthers came out strong in the second and were the first to score when Bryce Cartwright took advantage of some space in the middle of the field to wrestle over.
Determined not to give their opponents any more breathing space the Tricolours once again started to dominate play.
First it was James Maloney who slotted a penalty goal and then the playmaker put in a well timed grubber to set up Cordner to put the result beyond doubt.
A try a piece to both sides at the end including a double to Cordner rounded out the scoring.
