Managing to hold off a determined Gold Coast Titans side, the Sydney Roosters solidified their position as the ladder leaders, putting on the pressure early into their Sunday clash.

A number of errors (14 overall) made by the Titans saw the Roosters take advantage of their struggling opponents, scoring five first-half tries to set up their push to the minor premiership.

Despite finding their first win of the season last week, the Titans were unable to replicate it for a second time, struggling to get past the Roosters’ attack.

Even with the pressure on defence that the Titans managed to put on the field with 248 to 218 tackles, they couldn’t utilise it to deter the ladder leaders.

Several Roosters contributed to the damaging scoreline, dashing the Titans’ finals hopes and ending their season on a low.

Destiny Brill and Jayme Fressard were standouts for their side, both pocketing two tries each.

Jada Taylor was among the Roosters who also provided for the Roosters with the 18-year-old also getting a try on her debut in the tri-colours.

Apart from Madison Bartlett (two tries overall) and Jetaya Faifua, the Titans were unable to break past the Roosters’ run.

The second half saw the scores sitting on 4-28 going the Roosters way.

It wasn’t until the second half the Titans began to turn it up defensively, keeping the Roosters scoreless for a large chunk of the game.

But it was too late when the Roosters saw even more tries from the likes of Fressard and Jessica Sergis.

Zahara Temara also added headaches for the Titans, making five conversations from her seven attempts for the Roosters.

The win means that the Roosters will face the Eels in next week’s semi-finals. Meanwhile, it’s season over for the Titans, who finished sixth on the ladder.
