All the best action from Round 13 of the NSWRL’s major competitions.
Roosters edge out Mounties in top of the table clash
Two undefeated sides in the Sydney Roosters and Mounties went head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, and it was the Roosters who kept their undefeated season alive with a 22-20 victory at Aubrey Keech Reserve in the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership.
The match lived up to all expectations with Mounties getting off to a perfect start through five-eighth Sereana Naitokatoka, who scored in the very first minute.
Tries to Mounties back-rower Jamie-Anne Wright and another for Naitokatoka helped push their side out to a 14-0 lead at the halftime break.
The Roosters showed off their premiership credentials when play resumed after clawing their way back into the game with tries to Yasmin Meakes, Keilee Joseph, Shawden Burton and Isabelle Kelly.
They held a 22-14 lead until back-rower Jade Etherden scored in the final 10 minutes to set up a grandstand finish.
Wests Tigers continue unbeaten run
Wests Tigers have beaten the Penrith Panthers 32-18 in Round 13 of the Jersey Flegg Cup as they continue their undefeated 2021 season.
There was plenty of energy early from the Panthers side after the ball looked to be rolling dead, until Kristian Li Mai leaped through the air, batting the ball back into play for Matthew Faauila to plant it down.
From there, the Tigers showed why they are the team to beat after running in three unanswered tries through Iverson Fuatimau, Ben Stevanovic and Liam Scolari.
The Penrith side hit back soon after with back-to-back tries from Elone Taufa and Mavrik Geyer to bring their side to within four points of the Tigers 16-12 lead at halftime.
The second half was dominated by the competition leaders as they ran in three more tries to Penrith’s one. Five-eighth Ben Stevanovic kicked four from six to help his side to a 32-18 victory.
