Rooster peck
Warriors into submission

The Sydney Roosters have thrashed the New Zealand Warriors at the Aussie Stadium to lay down a challenge for the top 4 in beating the Warriors 44 - 0.

Brad Fittler had the ball on a string to set up several tries for the Roosters, with passes and kicks to put his team mates over for the easiest of tries. Equally impressive for the Roosters was his halves partner Craig Wing. Wing broke the line almost at will in the second half.

The Roosters attack was only over shadowed by their defense. Racing up and smothering the Warriors attack all night, the Roosters forced the Warriors into error after error.

The Warriors will need to lift their game if they are to make a challenge in the finals. The Roosters on the other hand couldn?t have asked to be in better form in the run into the finals.
