NYC Match Report | Round 4
The Roosters put on a big second half performance at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night to down the Sea Eagles 42-23.
They got off to the perfect start, scoring the first try of the night through Johnny Tuivasa-Sheck on the right edge.
The Sea Eagles struck back moments later through Jesse Ramien, also scoring on their right edge.
It was a right edge riot to start the second half, as the Roosters took advantage yet again, but this time through Joseph Manu who stormed his way through the defence.
In what was being served up as a back-and-forth encounter, it was only fitting that the Sea Eagles were the next to score.
Billy Bainbridge went over for the Sea Eagles, only on this occasion the right edge was not involved.
The back-and-forth was brought to a halt when Lucas Price split the defence and ran 20 metres to go over for the Sea Eagles.
Luke Chalker was determined to get the lead back for the Roosters, and did just that when he stormed his way through the defence to plant it down just wide of the uprights.
Jesse Ramien bagged a double for the Sea Eagles and levelled the scores just shy of the break.
Nicholas Hynes slotted a field goal to give the Sea Eagles the 1-point lead heading into the sheds at half time.
The Roosters started the second half in style, scoring a try through Bernard Lewis after he got a perfect pass from Kiah Cooper to go over in the corner.
Lewis would go on to bag his double just ten minutes later when he received a bullet pass from Jesse Marschke.
Josh Martin scored for the Sea Eagles to get themselves back into it, but the counter from the Roosters was all class.
Back-to-back tries to Jarrett Boland and Grant Garvey at the back end of the half sealed the deal for the Roosters, winning their third game of the year in Round 4.
Johnny-Tuivasa Sheck scored on the buzzer to make the scoreline even more attractive.
