After leading 16-10 at the break, the Roosters allowed Ivanhoes to hit back with two second half tries and lead the contest 20-16 with 10 minutes remaining.

A converted try in the final minutes to Teesha Potts got the Roosters home with a two-point win.

“One standout moment was definitely Teesha Potts with the chip and chase to a game winning try in the last five minutes,” coach Paul Stephens said.

“She played really well throughout the whole game, her control at half back was really good and her kicking game was great as well.

“Eden Grace also had a really good game, and we had really good defence all throughout the game. The girls performed really well as a team and that is what made it.”

The Roosters Ladies have the competition bye this weekend before their next match against Yarrabah on 27 April at home.

In the lead-up to their next game, Stephens said they would focus mostly on their defence and ball control skills.

“We will be working on ball control and sticking to the process. We did go away from the game plan a couple of times but so far that hasn’t been a major issue, however it is something to work on,” he said.
