Juniors Report Finals Week 2: Tarsha Gale and SG Ball Qualify for Grand Final

Two of the three remaining Sydney Roosters junior representative sides have qualified for the Grand Final following last week's semi-final matches.

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball Cup (Mens Under 19s) and Tarsha Gale Cup (Womens Under 19s) have both qualified for their respective competition's Grand Finals, while the Harold Matthews Cup (Mens Under 17s) were pipped by just two points. 

Harold Matthews Overcome by Sharks in Close Contest

Just two points separated the Sydney Roosters and Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in second week of the semi-finals in the Harold Matthews Cup, with the Tricolours going down 14-12.

Cronulla enjoyed a fast start to the match, scoring in just the second minute of play, but soon after the Roosters replied through try-scoring centre Cooper Toy, while another try to the Sharks saw the side trailing by four at the break.

The second half saw their opponents score again within minutes of taking the field to extend their lead, however, the Red, White and Blue came back within another two-point margin with a try to halfback Toby Rodwell.

But the final half-hour would see no points added to the scoreboard in a tense affair at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, as the Roosters were defeated 14-12.

SG Ball Qualify for Grand Final with Big Win Over Dogs

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball Cup side have qualified for their first Grand Final since 2014 with a 20-point win over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon

The Minor Premiers were in full control from the outside in the six-tries-to-two victory, with Kyron Fekitoa and Cassius Tia getting on the scoreboard before the Bulldogs hit back in the shadows of halftime for a 10-6 lead.

Three tries in the ensuing 20 minute period including a double to Siaosi Kaliti saw the boys from Bondi extend their lead further, with a Xavier Chatfield-Mooka try solidifying the result with just minutes remaining. 

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball side will take on the Penrith Panthers at 3pm in the Grand Final this coming Saturday at Commbank Stadium.

Tarsha Gale Qualify For Second Consecutive Decider

The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale Cup side will have the chance to rewrite history after reaching their second consecutive Grand Final with a 22-8 win over the Wests Tigers.

Although their opponents landed the first blow in the sixth minute, that was the only try the Roosters were willing to concede as they hit straight back through Jada Taylor, before a penalty goal to the Tigers handed them an 8-6 lead at halftime.

Pani Hopoate gave her side the lead with a try just minutes on resumption, while Zoe Cass added another soon after as the Tricolours continued their roll on - despite having just eleven players on the field following two sin bins in an eight-minute period.

Ally Bullman put her name on the scoresheet before Taylor bagged her second to solidify the 22-8 victory, propelling the Red, White and Blue into the decider.

The Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale Cup side will take on the Newcastle Knights at 11am in the Grand Final this coming Saturday at Commbank Stadium.
