Match Review

The Sydney Roosters have ended their four game losing streak, dominating against the West Tigers, 36-4 on Friday night at Allianz Stadium.

Sydney Roosters had a great start to the match, receiving two penalties within four minutes, replying in the fifth minute with a try. Daniel Tupou impressed everyone with his footwork, flirting with the sideline but managed to stay in to put his team in the lead, 4-0.

Robbie Farah then attempted to step up for the West Tigers and kick a 40/20, but just came short and was unsuccessful.

In the 24th minute Taukeiaho went over the line for the Roosters and James Maloney had a successful conversion, increasing the lead 10-0.

Cordner was not fair behind Taukeiaho as four minutes later he went over the line again. The Tigers defence was disappointing against the fired up Roosters.

Daniel Tupou showed off his talent in the 31st minute scoring his second try of the night for the Roosters. Maloney successfully converted Tupou’s terrific try and furthered the Roosters lead, 22-0.

Half Time Roosters were in front 22-0 and the Tigers remained scoreless.

In the 54th minute West Tigers centre, Chris Lawrence was confident after coming close to scoring a try, after a brilliant contest but referees deemed the Roosters had position in goal forcing a 20 metre restart.

In the 62nd minute Daniel Tupou went over the line for the third time and Mitchell Pearce wasn’t far behind crossing the line in the 68th minute.

By the 77th minute Halatau crossed the line for the Tigers but Pat Richards missed the conversion.

The Tigers looked strong for most of the game and the scoreboard did not reflect their efforts but Sydney Roosters were too good.
