Juniors Report Round 7: Roosters Bounce Bears

It was another set of positive results for the Sydney Roosters Junior Representative teams on the weekend as the semi-finals loom ever closer.

It was a hat-trick of wins for the Sydney Roosters Harold Matthews, SG Ball and Tarsha Gale Cup sides against the North Sydney Bears, while the Central Coast Roosters were defeated in both the Harold Matthews and the Laurie Daley Cup. 

Harold Matthews Roosters Firm for Top Four Spot With Win Over Bears

The Sydney Roosters Harold Matthews side have staked their claim for a top four finish after a solid 24-14 win over the North Sydney Bears. 

It was a close contest in the first half with the sides unable to be split with one try apiece, as Eden Potter crossed for the Tricolours' first four-pointer.

Cooper Toy got the Red, White and Blue in front minutes upon resumption, and while the Bears hit back soon after, tries in quick succession to De La Salle Va'a and Ethan Roberts sealed the result, with Norths scoring a consolation in the dying stages. 

The second-placed Roosters will travel north take on their counterparts in the Central Coast Roosters on Saturday at Morry Breen Oval.

Central Coast Roosters Brave in Showdown With Sea Eagles

It was a brave showing from the young Central Coast Roosters in the Harold Matthews Cup, who went down to the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles six tries to three at Aubrey Keech Reserve. 

The Red, White and Blue fought back from an early deficit to trail by just eight points at the break, and with a Riley Burke try right after half-time, the Roosters came within four points of their opponents.

Unfortunately, the Sea Eagles ran away in the second half, with five-eighth Matthew Humphries touching down in the dying stages. 

The Central Coast Roosters will host their Sydney Roosters counterparts at Morry Breen Oval on Saturday afternoon.

SG Ball Remain Undefeated With Shutout of Norths

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball side have extended their undefeated run with a comprehensive 30-nil shutout of the North Sydney Bears at Kirkham Oval, Camden.

It was a dominant performance from the outset with Easts leading the way with a try in the very first minute of play to Xavier Chatfield-Mooka, while Kyron Fekitoa dotted down just a few minutes later for an early 10-nil lead.

The one-way traffic continued as Tom Wheen bagged a try before Fekitoa scored his second right before half-time to give the Tricolours a 20-nil half-time lead.

The Bondi Wall held up as they continued to keep their opponents scoreless, with a sin-binning seeing the Bears down a man as winger Aaron Dimovitch took advantage. 

Five-eighth Ethan Strange added his name to the scoreboard in the dying stages as the Roosters ran away with a convincing 30-nil win. 

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball side will travel to Casey Fields in Melbourne to take on the Victoria Thunderbolts in their Round 8 clash on Saturday afternoon.

Tarsha Gale Roosters Remain On Top With Bears Whitewash

The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale Cup side emulated the SG Ball team's efforts as they too kept North Sydney scoreless to remain at the top of the ladder with a 22-nil victory. 

Fullback Jada Taylor began proceedings with a try in the sixth minute, and that would be the only score in the first stanza as the Roosters went into the break with a slender 4-nil lead. 

The floodgates opened in the second half with winger Vanessa Parker adding to the scoreline, before second rower Otesa Pule continued her try-scoring streak five minutes later. 

The result was sealed in the final ten minutes as Leilani Wilson and Maddie Binding added tries, completing a 22-nil victory.

The Roosters will host the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Morry Breen Oval at midday this coming Saturday.

Laurie Daley Cup Unable to Overcome Dragons in Finals

The Laurie Daley Cup side's season has come to a close with a valiant 12-18 defeat against the Illawarra South Coast Dragons. 

It was a tough loss for the young Roosters, who battled through to a 12-all halftime score with a double to centre Noah Goodman, but their opponents came over the top in the second half by a single try. 

The Sydney Roosters would like to congratulate both Central Coast Roosters sides in the Laurie Daley Cup and Andrew Johns Cup respectively on their seasons.
