Jersey Flegg Cup | Roosters Victorious in Victoria

Sydney Roosters 38 def Melbourne Storm 8

It was a big win for the Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side over the weekend in Victoria, defeating the Melbourne Storm 38-8 at Seabrook Reserve in Broadmeadows. 

The Roosters ran riot from the kick-off, with second rower Ethan Roberts (10th minute), winger Benjamin Taylor (18th), centre Xavier Chatfield-Mooka (27th) and five-eighth Zac Sarfati (34th) crossing for a handy 20-nil lead at the break. 

Chatfield-Mooka crossed first in the second stanza to bag his double, while Watisoni Waqanisaravi and Cathane Hill added their name to the scoresheet soon after to extend the lead to 38 points. 

Melbourne crossed twice in the dying stages, but the result was never in doubt as the Roosters crowed down in Victoria, securing their fourth win for the season. 

The Sydney Roosters Jersey Flegg side will be on the road again this weekend to face the New Zealand Warriors at North Harbour Stadium in Auckland.

NSW Cup Round 9 Highlights: Roosters vs Bears

NSW Cup | Roosters and Bears Settle for Stalemate

Sydney Roosters 10 draw with North Sydney Bears 10 

The Sydney Roosters NSW Cup side battled out a hard-earned draw against the second-placed North Sydney Bears at a drenched North Sydney Oval on Sunday afternoon.

Norths struck first out wide in the torrential rain after 20 minutes, however, it wasn't long before the Roosters replied in kind after winger Harry McKeon scored from a well-placed kick from front rower Dylan Napa. 

The home side took an 8-4 lead into the break after Napa found himself in the sin-bin, with another penalty goal extending the difference by a converted try with half an hour remaining.

Easts refused to go down wondering, however, and let their football do the talking with Turoa Williams scheming his way over the line to close the gap to two with an hour gone. 

A penalty goal in the final minute to five-eighth Jake Elliott saw the scores levelled at 10-apiece as the full-time hooter sounded, with goal-kicking eluding the Roosters as they scored two tries to one. 

The Sydney Roosters NSW Cup team will also travel to New Zealand this weekend to face the New Zealand Warriors at North Harbour Stadium on Sunday.
