Roosters run down rabbitohs in win over Manly
SUPERCOACH Ewan Marshall said today’s 48-12 win against the Sea Eagles saw his side break the 100-points barrier – becoming the third Western Force team to do so in a single season this year.
jarvees.comIt was a fitting way to mark the centenary of the club’s inception and its iconic players such as David Klem바카라mer and Dean Lyon – all of whom retired this year – came out to celebrate with fans and staff.
„In that first year we won a premiership,“ Marshall said.
„There was no doubt there. Our players were great. We won with a lot of heart, it was a great team effort.“
Marshall was proud of his side’s efforts and the success it had with their new-look squad of 25 players.
„We’re pleased we were able to break that record today. It’s a proud moment.
„We got some great guys in that side – players that’ve played under a lot of great coaches, some outstanding players in their time that are just going to stick with this club through thick and thin now.“

The return home to Newcastle following last Sunday’s loss at Penrith was one of the most memorable of the year.
The Roosters returned home after a six-week flight to play in the opening round of the NRL finajarvees.comls and made it two consecutive wins over the Sea Eagles.
„As a player in that group we played a good game,“ Marshall said.
„If you’ve got a good group, you’ve got a lot of confidence when you know you’ve won.
„It was one that we had to put to the sword today, but we’ve got some experience at the end and we’ll focus on it.“
