Roosters season comes to end

The Atherton Senior Roosters under 18 side have fallen one game short of a grand final spot after going down to Kangaroos 56-6 in Saturday’s FNQ rugby league elimination final at Barlow Park.

It was a horror end to the young Roosters finals campaign after winning their two previous sudden death semis. 

On Saturday, the Roosters were full of mistakes and lacked the energy shown by their opposition, who ran in several lengths of the field four-pointers. 

Kangaroos took four minutes to get on the board and dominated their march to the grand final. 

Five first-half tries gave Kangaroos a 22-0 lead at the break, with the Roosters only match points coming through a late consolation try to hooker Tait Coghlan. 

The Senior Roosters will wrap up their season with the club’s presentation night on Friday, September 15, at the Atherton Hotel.
