The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale side have remained undefeated in their first three matches of the season, the Central Coast Roosters Harold Matthews side went down in a close contest while the Andrew Johns Cup and Laurie Daley Cup teams had mixed results in Round 3 of their respective competitions. 

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball Cup and Harold Matthews Cup teams both enjoyed the bye through Round 3 and will return to the field in Round 4. 

Tarsha Gale Continue Unbeaten Run Against Raiders

The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale Cup side have continued their winning streak to start the season with a convincing 32-6 victory over the Canberra Raiders.

Travelling down to Belconnen Oval in the nation's capital, the young Roosters ran in six tries and were in control from the opening whistle, holding a 14-nil lead at the break following a try to Charlize Lloyd-Phillips and a double to Leilani Wilson.

The home side scored shortly after the break, but the Red, White and Blue powered through the second stanza as Kalosipani Hopoate widened the gap with a four-pointer of her own, before hard-running back rower Otesa Pule scored her third double for the season, having scored six tries from just three matches. 

The top-of-the-table Tarsha Gale Cup Roosters will take on the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval this Saturday 26 February at 4:30pm in their Round 4 clash.

Central Coast Harold Matts Narrowly Defeated by Dragons

The Harold Matthews Cup Central Coast Roosters went down 8-10 in a low-scoring affair against the St George Illawarra Dragons on the Central Coast. 

In a tight first half, the Dragons laid on the first try of the match just before the break, taking a six-point lead following a scrappy first stanza. 

The Red, White and Blue replied in kind in the 42nd minute as centre Tyreece Arama put the Roosters on the board, with five-eighth Matt Humphries levelling the scores with the conversion.

With minutes remaining, a penalty goal to Humphries handed the side a slender two-point lead, but in heartbreaking circumstances, their opponents scored with just second remaining to claim victory.

The side will take on the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks this Sunday 27 February at Morry Breen Oval in their Round 4 clash, while their Sydney Roosters counterparts return from the bye to host the Western Suburbs Magpies at Henson Park.

Now at the top of the table, the Roosters will take on the Northern Rivers Titans on Sunday February 27 at Morry Breen Oval.

Andrew Johns Cup Roosters Pipped by Riverina

The Central Coast Roosters went down by the narrow 18-22 scoreline against the Riverina Bulls on Sunday afternoon in Round 3 of the Andrew Johns Cup.

Goal-kicking proved to be the difference on the day as the sides went try-for-try in a back and forth contest, scoring four times apiece, however, the Bulls proved to be too good for the Tricolours - who had to overcome two sin-binnings in the span of five minutes in the second half. 

The Central Coast Roosters will take on the Northern Rivers Titans this Sunday February 27 at Morry Breen Oval.
