Roosters edge out Mounties in top of the table clash

Two undefeated sides, Sydney Roosters and Mounties, went head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, and it was the Roosters who kept their perfect record intact 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.

St Marys get revenge in Grand Final rematch

St Marys have avenged their 2019 Grand Final loss to Wentworthville Magpies with a 48-4 win at St Marys Leagues Stadium in the Ron Massey Cup to bring their season record to consecutive 10 wins.

Despite the Magpies being firmly in the top four, St Marys proved they are a class above the rest running in nine tries to one.

Anton Iaria opened the scoring in the 13th minute and Ethan McPherson bagged a double on the stroke of halftime, as Saints went into the sheds leading 16-0.

The Magpies opened their account in the 41st minute after Harrison O'Toole finished off some slick backline movement down the left edge.

With the game in the balance, Saints hit back through halfback Zac Greene, who was there to reap the rewards off the back of a brilliant solo effort from centre Raymond Lesoa.

From there, the floodgates opened for the Saints who ran in five more unanswered tries through Lesoa, Adam Fearnley, Chris Aunese-Scanlan - who scored a double - and McPherson who finished with a hat-trick with just five minutes remaining.
