Seniors Report Round 3: Flegg Bash Bunnies

A late charge wasn't enough for the NSW Cup side at Allianz Stadium, however, it was a comprehensive victory for our Jersey Flegg side against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 3.

Sydney Roosters 30 def South Sydney Rabbitohs 4

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg Cup side were never in doubt against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 3, posting a dominant 30-4 victory over their arch-rivals at Wentworth Park. 

In similar fashion to their junior representative counterparts that claimed victory last weekend, the Jersey Flegg team started hard and fast with halfback Levi Conti crossing after just six minutes. 

Hooker Christian Abal, who made a transition from five-eighth prior to kick-off, was next to score, before captain Owen Flaherty touched down late in the first half for a handy 18-nil lead. 

Making plenty of impact off the bench, Alan Holten was next to score upon resumption, while Max Sedgman was next to score as the Tricolours reached 30 points after just 44 minutes. 

The Rabbitohs hit back for their only four-pointer of the match, but it was far from enough as the Roosters claimed their first victory of the season in style. 

The Sydney Roosters will face the Penrith Panthers in Round 4 of the Jersey Flegg Cup at Wentworth Park on Sunday afternoon.

A late second-half comeback wasn't enough for the Sydney Roosters NSW Cup side, who were downed by defending premiers South Sydney at Allianz Stadium in a curtain-raiser to the NRL match.

Discipline and a lack of rhythm cruelled the Red, White and Blue against their arch-rivals, who were fresh off a bye and capitalised early for a 16-nil half-time lead following three tries. 

The Roosters looked to claw back in the second half, but the premiers continued their push for a 28-nil lead, and despite gaining the ascendency with tries to centre Ethan Clark-Wood and Benaiah Ioelu in the dying stages, it was a 16-point defeat at the end of the 80 minutes. 

The Sydney Roosters NSW Cup side will look to reverse their fortunes against the Penrith Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Wentworth Park.
