Sydney Rooster

Tedesco, Manu supreme as Roosters blitz Dragons

With Joey Manu enjoying a day out in the No.6 jersey and James Tedesco doing  what James Tedesco does, the Roosters turned a 14-12 half-time deficit into their eighth win of the season, breaking a four-game losing streak in the process.

The Roosters were first to hit the scoreboard in the 14th minute when Manu showcased his speed and skill, busting the defensive line and delivering a superb flick pass for Victor Radley to race away and touch down under the posts.

In-form Manly ready for Roosters

Manly's understrength forward pack got the job done against the Cowboys in Townsville in Round 3 to help the team to their first win of the season but the return of aggressive props Marty Taupau and Addin Fonua-Blake – combined with some wonderful efforts from the likes of Daly Cherry-Evans and Tom Trbojevic – saw the side rack up a huge score against the Dogs.

It wasn't about me against Souths: Keary

 Keary also spoke of his budding combination with halves partner Mitchell Pearce – which has seen the two link up to devastating effect on both sides of the field – while labelling the rigid idea of one half on each side of the field as a "blight" on the game.  

Tight match previewed between Rabbitohs and Roosters

In this Shick Preview, these two neighbours from opposite sides of Anzac Parade have been going at it since 1908 and while in more recent years they have kicked off regular NRL seasons with mouth-watering Round 1 clashes, the advantage to this Round 4 meeting is each side has had a chance to feel their way into the season.

The Bunnies have hit back strongly after a dour Round 1 loss to Wests Tigers, putting Manly to the sword at Lottoland then edging past a gritty Knights outfit at McDonald Jones Stadium last week.
