Bulldogs SG Ball side fall short of Grand Final berth

Sydney Roosters have defeated Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 32-12 to secure their spot in the 2022 SG Ball Cup Grand Final.

The tricolours came into the game undefeated and with the best defence in the competition, leaving the Bulldogs with a tough challenge.

While the Bulldogs were able to go set-for-set with the Roosters for the opening 20 minutes, the tricolours finally broke the deadlock when five-eighth Ethan Strange split the defence in two and found Kyron Fekitoa supporting on his outside.

As the Roosters forwards started to lay a great platform, Benjamin Dufficy grubbered the ball through and unfortunately for the Dogs, the ball bounced off the goalpost and into the hands of Cassius Tia who scored the Roosters second try.

The Bulldogs hit back through Lajaun Vito who dived on a loose ball to get his side to 10-4 heading into the sheds at halftime.

It was a second-half blitz from the Chooks as Siaosi Kaliti and Strange bagged a double and Xavier Chatfield-Mooka crashed over for a four-pointer. While the Dogs would keep their account ticking over through a try to Jarvis Leafa, the Roosters showed why they have been the competition benchmark throughout the 2022 season.
