Juniors Report Round 8: Sydney Claim Hat-Trick of Wins

All three Sydney Roosters Junior Representative sides claimed victories on the weekend with just one week left in the regular season in their respective competitions. 

The SG Ball side were triumphant in their trip to Melbourne, the Harold Matthews Sydney Roosters and Central Coast Roosters faced off against one another while the Tarsha Gale Cup Roosters continued their undefeated run. 

Sydney Overcome Central Coast in Harold Matthews 

The Sydney Roosters came out on top against the Central Coast Roosters in their Round 8 clash at Kirkham Oval on Saturday.

Despite the Central Coast claiming first points through Riley Watson-Miletic, Sydney replied with two tries in quick succession to claim a 8-6 half-time lead, and continued their run with another four-pointer to Cooper Toy just minutes from resumption.

Central Coast hit back to close the deficit, but from there Sydney went on with the job as hooker Jaxson Allen bagged a double in a five minute period, before Ethan Roberts sealed the result minutes from fulltime. 

In the final regular-season round of the Harold Matthews Cup, the Sydney Roosters will play the St George Illawarra Dragons at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, while the Central Coast Roosters host the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Morry Breen Oval. 

 

Sydney Roosters 30 (Jaxson Allen 2, Toby Rodwell, De La Salle Va'a, Ethan Roberts tries; Lachlan Dooner 2 goals; Lachlan Dooner penalty goal) def Central Coast Roosters 10 (Riley Watson-Miletic, Tyreece Arama tries; Matthew Humphries goal)

 

SG Ball Come From Behind in Big Win Over Thunderbolts

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball side is one win away from claiming the Minor Premiership following their seventh consecutive win, defeating the Victoria Thunderbolts 34-14 in Melbourne.

It was a come-from-behind win for the Roosters, with the home side striking twice to claim a twelve-point lead after as many minutes, but the Red, White and Blue rallied with two tries of their own to Cassius Tia and Ethan Strange, while a penalty goal on the stroke of halftime saw Victoria lead by four. 

The second half was one-way traffic to the Tricolours though, with five tries including a double to centre Robert Toia resulting in a dominant 20-point away from home with the semi-finals around the corner.

The SG Ball side will take on the St George Dragons at Netrstata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday in the final match of the regular season.

Tarsha Gale Roosters Remain on Top Ahead of Final Round 

Similarly, the Tarsha Gale Cup Roosters have remained undefeated and on top of the ladder heading into the final round of the competition, effectively sealing the Minor Premiership with a 28-4 win over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

The Red, White and Blue dominated from the outset, with Otesa Pule scoring in the first minute of play before Tayla Montgomery extended the lead to twelve points moments later. 

Cronulla-Sutherland hit back to close the deficit to eight at the break, but the Roosters went on with the job in the second half, with Ally Bullman crossing and Pule and Montgomery bagging doubles before Jada Taylor found herself on the scoresheet in the shadows of fulltime. 

The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale Cup side will finish the regular season against the St George Dragons in a Grand Final rematch at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday.
