B Moz is ok - just a calf complaint, and the Warriors are forcing repeat drop-outs.


Time off with Brett Morris down holding his leg. Hope he's ok.


A penalty for the visitors coming out of their own end. Warriors on the attack.


The Harris error is compounded by a penalty and now the Warriors have their defensive work cut out for them...


Needless error at the play the ball from Tohu Harris. Roosters scrum inside the Warriors' 40m.


Play resumes and straight away we have Jazz Tevaga down with an injury.


We reach halftime with no more addition to the scoresheet. It started well for the Warriors but the Roosters started cracking the Warriors right open once we hit the 25-minute mark.


WOW. The Roosters are in off a Crichton run - straight through a gap... although we're checking it with the Bunker. Obstruction. NO TRY. Penalty Warriors.

Teddy with a poor offload trying to find Crichton on the left edge and it's called forward. Very haphazard attack from a Roosters side with rookie halves at the helm.


A handy penalty for the Tricolours has them pushing up into the Warriors' half.


Oooft. Sitili Tupouniua has crashed into the shoulder of Eliesa Katoa attempting a tackle. The Roosters #12 is off for a HIA.


Some hot potato footy late in the tackle count from the Roosters finishes with Drew Hutchison tackled inside the Warriors' 10m.

Joey Manu goes in out wide but he's lost it in the act of scoring. Warriors 20m restart.


Onside is good. Brett Morris goes up for it... and we don't need to watch anymore, he's knocked it on. Wait - they're ruling a penalty against the Warriors for Ken Maumalo taking him out in the air. NO TRY. PENALTY ROOSTERS.


Off to the video with a possible Roosters try. Ben Cummins sends it up no try.


Game on. The hosts have first use of the ball and it's Isaac Liu taking the first hit-up.

Time for some footy at the SCG for your Easter Sunday night! The Roosters will blood new boys Sam Walker (half) and Ben Marschke (bench) while the Warriors are the same as last week. Tedesco v RTS... mouthwatering match up. Let's rock and roll.
