The Sydney Roosters extinguished

The Sydney Roosters extinguished the hopes of nation with
a runaway 30-8 victory over the New Zealand Warriors at Sydney's
Telstra Stadium on Sunday night.

The courageous Warriors remained in the hunt into the final
quarter, even leading the Roosters 8-6 shortly after the break.
Brad Fittler was crucial for the Roosters, leading his side
to victory in the second half. Stacey Jones stood out for
the Warriors, and scored his side's only try. The Kiwis were
competitive throughout, and the game was anyone's for 60 minutes.
