SG Ball Cup

The Raiders SG Ball side continued their strong start to the season with a 38-28 win over the Sydney Roosters at Henson Park on Saturday.

The Raiders lead 32-6 at half-time before the Roosters staged a second half comeback, but it wasn’t enough as the Raiders held on for victory.

It was a fast start from the visitors, with tries to Jacob Iosefa, Owen Pattie and Samuel Gash giving the Raiders an 18-0 lead after 15 minutes of play.

The Roosters hit back with a try but the Raiders were able to bounce straight back with a try to halfback Jalen Afamasaga.

Iosefa then got his second try of the day for the Raiders, before fullback Chevy Stewart scored just before half-time to give his side a 32-6 lead at the break.

The Raiders started the second half right where they left off, with second rower Noah Martin scoring and Samuel Gash successfully converting to give the green machine a 38-6 lead.

From there it was all the Roosters, with the home side running in four straight tries to get within 10 points of the Raiders.

The Raiders travel to 4 Pines Park in Sydney next weekend to take on the Sea Eagles.
