The Sydney Roosters Junior Representative teams continued their strong form in their respective competitions, with just one defeat in eight matches across the weekend. 

Lisa Fiaola Cup | Two Points Separate Sydney and Central Coast 

Sydney Roosters 20 def Wests Tigers 18 

The Sydney Roosters Lisa Fiaola Cup side has continued their form in their inaugural season, defeating the Wests Tigers by two points at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday. 

A brace of four-pointers in the opening fifteen minutes gave the Roosters a handy lead, with the Tigers returning serve for a 10-6 half-time advantage to the visitors. 

Irae Savea scored minutes upon the resumption, and while two tries to the home side saw the Roosters trail with less than ten minutes remaining, a length-of-the-field effort from Talea Tonga saw the halfback bag her second to seal the win. 

The Sydney Roosters will look to go three for three this Saturday when they host the St George Illawarra Dragons at Henson Park in Round 3. 

Central Coast Roosters 10 def by Illawarra Steelers 12 

In a low-scoring affair, the Central Coast Roosters were pipped by the Illawarra Steelers by just two points in their Round 2 match. 

The Roosters found themselves with a mountain to climb, trailing by eight points to nil early on before a four-pointer on the stroke of half-time to Grace Dabin closed the gap to just two at the break. 

Illawarra returned serve to extend their lead, and despite a late four-pointer to fullback Mia Vaotu'ua, the Tricolours were unable to come up with another try, falling short 12-10. 

The Central Coast Roosters will look to bounce back when they travel to Shark Park to face the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks on Saturday for their Round 3 clash. 

Harold Matthews Cup | First Half Masterclass Tames Tigers, Central Coast Thump Raiders 

Sydney Roosters 26 def Balmain Tigers 6

A 22-point lead has propelled the Sydney Roosters' Harold Matthews side to a big win against the Balmain Tigers at Leichhardt Oval in Round 2. 

The Tricolours struck just four minutes in thanks to winger EJ Mahu-Delamere, with Rex Bassingthwaighte, Bailey Roberts-Lintmeijer and James Finegan touching down to give their side a 22-nil lead at the break. 

Mahu-Delamere extended the lead further with his second in the 40th minute, and while Balmain hit back with minutes remaining, the Roosters maintained control throughout for a comprehensive 26-6 win.

Central Coast Roosters 38 def Canberra Raiders 10 

A seven-try performance saw the Central Coast Roosters thump the Canberra Raiders 38-10 in their first match of the season following a bye in Round 1. 

The sides went tit for tat in the first half hour, locked at 10-all with two tries and one conversion apiece, but the second half ramped up with two quickfire tries thanks to Isaac Fotu-Moala and Payton Gifford.

Sangstar Figotia and Jai Callaghan added their names to the scoresheet, while Fotu-Moala bagged his second with minutes remaining as the Roosters ran amock for a 38-10 win. 

The Central Coast Roosters will travel to Wollongong to face the Illawarra Steelers at Collegians Sporting Complex in Round 3. 

Tarsha Gale Cup | Roosters Run Riot in Leichhardt 

Sydney Roosters Indigenous Academy 60 def Wests Tigers 0 

A thirteen-try rout of the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval has seen the Sydney Roosters Indigenous Academy record their biggest-ever victory in the competition. 

The Tricolours made their intentions clear from the outset with four tries in the opening fifteen minutes, with a further two giving the side a commanding 28-nil lead at the break. 

The momentum continued in the second stanza with a further seven four-pointers, which saw Tyra Ekepati and Sienna-Mae Montgomery bag doubles, while a further nine players added their names to the try-scoring sheet.

In a near-perfect performance, the Roosters also kept a clean scoresheet, maintaining top spot on the ladder with a dominant 60-nil victory.

The Roosters will host the St George Dragons in Round 3 at Henson Park as they look to continue their impressive winning record. 

SG Ball Cup | Rodwell Field Goal Sinks Tigers 

Sydney Roosters 13 def Balmain Tigers 12 

A field goal to halfback Toby Rodwell sealed a dramatic victory for the Sydney Roosters SG Ball Cup side in what was a closely fought 13-12 win over the Balmain Tigers at Leichhardt Oval.

Winger Baxter Warner got the Tricolours on the board to begin proceedings, and while the hosts hit back soon after, Warner's second try just before the break gave the Red, White and Blue a slender 8-6 lead. 

In similar fashion to the first half, it was fellow winger Tyreece Tait touching down for the Roosters to extend the lead, before Balmain returned serve with just over 20 minutes remaining with the scores locked up at twelve apiece. 

Cometh the hour, it was halfback Rodwell who calmly slotted the game-winning field goal with just one minute remaining to seal a hard-fought win. 

The Sydney Roosters SG Ball Cup team will host the New Zealand Warriors at Morry Breen Oval in Round 3. 

Andrew Johns Cup | Roosters Pip Titans 

Central Coast Roosters 26 def Northern Rivers Titans 22 

In a high-scoring affair, the Central Coast Roosters have defeated the Northern Rivers Titans 26-22, with a strong first half performance laying the foundation for victory. 

The Red, White and Blue touched down within a minute of play, and continued their fast and furious start with a further three tries for an impressive 20-nil half-time lead. 

The Titans hit back early in the second stanza, but a try to winger Semi Leweniqila extended the Roosters' lead further. While late momentum saw Northern Rivers bring the scoreline to within four in the final five minutes, the Tricolours held off their opponents to claim a well-deserved victory. 

The Central Coast Roosters Andrew Johns Cup side will travel to Tamworth to play the Northern Tigers on Saturday morning at 10:00am. 

Laurie Daley Cup |

Central Coast Roosters 18 def Northern Rivers Titans 14

Despite scoring three tries apiece, the Central Coast Roosters have come away with an 18-14 victory over the Northern Rivers Titans in Round 2 of the Laurie Daley Cup. 

Much like the Andrew Johns Cup side, the Laurie Daley Cup side held off a late comeback from their opponents after scoring twice in the first eight minutes for a 12-4 lead at half-time. 

The Tricolours extended their lead with a try to halfback Brooklyn Rosemeyer after the break, and while the Titans scored two late tries, the Roosters emerged victorious 18-14. 

The Laurie Daley Cup side will travel alongside the Andrew Johns Cup to Tamworth to face the Northern Tigers in Round 3.
