Temara shines as Roosters record win over Warriors in NRLW

Sydney Roosters prop Filomina Hanisi

Looking to win their second game this NRLW season, the Sydney Roosters managed to just that, with a 22-12 success over the New Zealand Warriors.

Led by half Zahara Temara, who controlled the game well with her kicking, the Roosters just had too much firepower for the Warriors.

Having done all the hard work, the Roosters have now put themselves in the box seat to make the grand final.

It was a raid down the right-hand side that saw Yasmin Meakes open the scoring in the contest.

The Roosters centre powered past her opposite number to dive over the line and score.

Quincy Dodd then proved once again how lethal she is out of dummy half with a near carbon copy of her try last week.

Close to the line and spotting a gap, Dodd darted over to score with ease and extend the Roosters lead.

Temara then did it all herself with a 50 m solo effort, busting through the line and evading several Warriors defenders to score.

Bobbi Law would put the game to bed with a crafty try after 50 minutes at 24-0.

Though not to be held scoreless, the Warriors dug deep at the death.

Kirra Dibb would score the Warriors first when she grubbered ahead for herself and won the race to the ball.

Off the kick-off and essentially the last play of the game, Simone Smith found Evania Pelite who coasted away to score.
