Senior's Report: Flegg Roosters Pummel Storm in Melbourne

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg Cup side have continued their winning ways, recording a 37-6 victory over the Melbourne Storm, while the NSW Cup Roosters suffered a 42-point defeat at the hands of the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles on Sunday.

Cup Roosters Outclassed by Sea Eagles

The Sydney Roosters were outclassed by the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles in Round 18 of the NSW Cup competition on Sunday at 4 Pines Park.

With a number of players unavailable through injury or NRL call-up, the Roosters struggled to find points throughout the match, with Corey Ross claiming the only try in the dying minutes.

The Tricolours maintained possession close to their line in the opening 10 minutes, eventually finding their way over, only to have the try denied after a suspected obstruction.

From that point, Blacktown took full advantage, reining in five first-half tries to head to the sheds with a 30-0 lead.

The hosts were quick to increase their margin after the break through Dean Matterson, with Morgan Harper finding more points seven minutes later.

A consolation try in the 73rd minute for Ross and a conversion by Jonah Ngaronoa had little impact on the final result.

The Roosters will now turn their sights to Round 19, where they’ll host the Newcastle Knights at Wentworth Park on Sunday.

Flegg Roosters Pummel Storm in Melbourne

The Jersey Flegg Roosters crushed the Melbourne Storm 37-6 at Seabrook Reserve on Sunday afternoon.

A double to Max McCathie and creative attack from Cassius Tia carried the Tricolours to their third consecutive win, building much needed momentum as they head into the bye round.

The Storm found first points in the opening minute through hooker Gabriel Satrick, but Easts came home strong, piling on three tries before the break.

McCathie claimed a double in the first minute of the second half, capitalising off an error from the hosts. Tia found the stripe six minutes later, converting his own try to make the score 30-6, with points flowing through Vaiala Tamati shortly after.

Tia completed his perfect day on the boot with a field goal in the 67th minute, icing a 37-6 victory for the Roosters.
