Roosters defeat Bulldogs 6-0. 

After a few tough sets to open the match the away side opened the scoring with Origin hopeful Latrell Mitchell going over and converting his own try. 

It wasn’t long before Mitchell went from hero to villain after he tackled Bulldogs half Kieran Foran without the ball and was subsequently sent for 10 in the bin. 

Being a man down for 10 minutes seemed not to worry the Roosters in defence as he Bulldogs failed to crack them with Mitchell off the field. 

The Bulldogs failed to capitalise on some good field position and the score remained 6-0 in favour of the Roosters leading into halftime. 

To open the second half the Bulldogs had a couple of cracks at the Roosters line but again came up early when Josh Jackson tried to muscle his way over but was called short. Roosters then came up with the ball.

The Bulldogs kept attacking the Roosters line without any luck at all with Josh Morris knocking on a perfectly placed bomb in the in goal allowing the Roosters out of danger yet again. 

At the 60th minute the Bulldogs had been tackled 50 times within the Roosters 20m zone without scoring a point! 

The Roosters gained some possession but like their opposition they couldn’t capitalise on it with Ferguson being bundled into touch by a good tackle from Brett Morris. 

Finally the video referee had some work to do in the 70th minute with Mitchell Aubusson being deemed held after he took a bomb and losing it backwards with Ferguson going up. It was deemed No Try. 

The Bulldogs then had a chance to work it out of their own end but made an error on the 2nd tackle allowing the Roosters another crack at their line. It didn’t last long as the Roosters dropped the ball on the 2nd tackle themselves. 

The last 10 minutes was all Bulldogs but again they couldn’t crack the Roosters defensive wall. 

The Roosters escaped with a close 6-0 win with an error count of 17 and less possession than their opponents. 

Nath’s Man of the Match: Boyd Cordner

Running for 145m and making 50 tackles Cordner was a key member in the Roosters defensive line every time the Bulldogs had the ball.
