The Sydney Roosters are truly a force to be reckoned with in the NRLW as they steamrolled the Wests Tigers 48-10. 

The Tigers, who are not a terrible outfit themselves, were simply blown off the park with the writing on the wall perhaps already written when Brydie Parker scored after just 1 minute.

Parker’s try was created courtesy of a lovely cut-out pass from Tarryn Aiken who fired it across defenders, leaving Parker with a relatively easy passage to the line.

The Roosters had all the momentum and soon had a second when Millie Boyle powered onto the ball, ran a diagonal line and was able to bounce over and score with her momentum.

Aiken was again in the thick of the action for the Roosters third as the ball went left and her pass found Isabelle Kelly who was just too powerful for her opposite number out wide.

Perhaps one shining highlight for the Tigers was Sarah Togatuki – despite a late sin-binning for her – as she tried her best to get the Tigers back in it.

She cut through the line and powered over to continue her impressive NRLW season.

The Tigers would not get much more luck, however, as the Roosters juggernaut rolled on.

The Roosters went left this time and the ball would end up in the hands of Mia Wood for her first of the afternoon.

Olivia Kernick then showed her silky passing skills yet again as she found Jess Sergis running a nice line to bustle her way over.

The Roosters razzle-dazzle play was too much for the Tigers to keep up with as Wood grabbed her second after Sergis left the Tigers defence clutching at straws.

Showing some spirit and attacking fight, the Tigers would grab their second try via Rikeya Horne out wide but there would be no more.

A simple crash play saw Amelia Pasikala crash over with ease to continue the Roosters dominance in the second.

Corban Baxter got in the scoring when Parker found her on the inside to score a simple try.

Togatuki was then sin-binned for a hip-drop tackle that could see her in some strife at the judiciary.

Wood would grab her third as the Roosters capitalised on the extra player, with Aiken and Baxter showing good lead-up work in the process.

On the back of a break from Sergis, the Roosters would score their last try as Jocelyn Kelleher burrowed over from dummy half.

Sydney Roosters 48 (Wood 3, Parker, Boyle, Kelly, Sergis, Pasikala, Baxter, Kelleher; Goals: Kelleher 4) def. Wests Tigers 10 (Togatuki, Horne; Goals: Piliae-Rasabale 1).
