Keary Shows, Goes and Puts Morris Over: Round 2 vs Tigers

The first two matches of the season saw the red-hot Roosters pile on an incredible 16 tries, but it was this effort halfway through the Round 2 match against the Tigers that got us out of our seats.

Early in the second half and up 18-6, a quick play the ball saw halfback Luke Keary shoot out from halfway, with a trademark show and go propelling him through the defensive line.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 2

With 20 metres left and facing off against Daine Laurie, the mercurial five-eighth palmed off the fullback before releasing a brilliant one-handed flick pass to veteran winger Brett Morris, who crossed for his second try of the match.

Rookie and Veteran Combine: Round 5 vs Sharks

In just his second game in the NRL, rookie halfback Sam Walker produced this pearler of a try to veteran winger Daniel Tupou.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 5

Down 18-10 with just over 10 minutes remaining, the Tricolours mounted their comeback as Walker spun an incredible spiral pass that cut out three teammates to Tupou.

Still with plenty of work to do, Tupou sprinted towards the tryline, and dived over to score one of the most memorable tries from a rookie and veteran duo.

Team Effort Topples Newcastle: Round 8 vs Knights

Looking to continue their try-scoring streak against the Newcastle Knights, the Roosters conjured up one of the best team efforts seen in 2021.

Fighting off defenders, front rower Siosiua Taukeiaho unleashed Victor Radley with a well-timed offload, and the hard-hitting lock dashed downfield as the Knights scrambled.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 8

Palming away fullback Kalyn Ponga, the ball found its way into the hands of Sam Walker, who summed up the frantic play by stepping aside and chipping the ball with a pinpoint-accurate kick to find Josh Morris on the full, culminating in a wild four-pointer.

Tedesco Magic Sends Crichton Over: Round 10 vs Cowboys

The brilliance of James Tedesco has been on show on multiple occasions in 2021, but this one had his name written all over it.

With half an hour left in their Magic Round clash against the Cowboys and down 18-16, the Roosters’ custodian took a dummy-half run from inside his own half to find himself on the other side of the defence.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 10

Streaking downfield and looking for support, Tedesco feigned a pass on the inside, before fighting off the fullback. Still with work to do, the deceptive fullback tripped over but still managed to fire a miraculous pass upward to a charging Angus Crichton, who finished off the move by touching down in the corner.

Manu Rakes, Kicks, Catches and Scores: Round 12 vs Raiders

Talented centre Joseph Manu showed he can do anything on the Rugby League field with this magic effort in Indigenous Round.

Fresh off a Raiders try midway through the second half and looking to strike back, Manu got to work quickly as he executed a well-devised one-on-one strip to get possession back.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 12

Just a few tackles later, the powerful centre launched an aerial assault 20 metres from the line, before beating his opponents to catch the ball and touch down for a staggering individual effort.

Last Minute Ikuvalu Acrobatics: Round 14 vs Titans

It was an acrobatic effort from hulking winger Matt Ikuvalu that propelled the Roosters to an almighty comeback against the Gold Coast Titans.

Leading 30-4 with just under half an hour remaining, the Red, White and Blue suddenly found themselves down by four with as many minutes remaining, but that was as close as they would let the Titans get to victory in this encounter.

With players stacked in the right-hand corner on fifth tackle, Joseph Manu fired a pass to winger Matt Ikuvalu, who somersaulted over the line with just inches to spare to level the scores in an incredible showing of contortion.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 14

Ice Inside to Victor, Walker Strolls Over: Round 18 vs Cowboys

Nearing the end of a back-and-forth contest against the Cowboys in tropical north Queensland, Easts sealed the match with a wild four-pointer from inside their own half.

After tenaciously defending their line and retaining their six-point lead, a short pass at the line from Isaac Liu saw Victor Radley burst through the line, just getting caught short 10 metres from the line after running the defence ragged.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 18

That wouldn’t stop the Roosters though, as a quick-thinking Sam Walker ran into dummy half before bamboozling his opponents to dive over next to the posts and ice the result.

Keighran Crashes Over for his Third: Round 25 vs Raiders

It was better late than never for utility-come-centre Adam Keighran in the final round of the season as he bagged a hat-trick and a 20-point haul against the Canberra Raiders.

With the Roosters holding a handy 12-point lead after 50 minutes, the left side looked to extend the margin as the fiery centre took an offload from 20 metres out and sliced his way through to link up with James Tedesco.

Steggles Try of the Week - Round 25

With defenders closing in, the fullback and captain summed up the situation beautifully, throwing an overhead pass back to Keighran who danced his way to the line before crashing into the corner post –thankfully unharmed and able to complete his first treble in Red, White and Blue.
