CAIRNS Kangaroos have kept their finals chances alive following a 36-18 win over the Atherton Roosters in Sunday’s Cairns District Rugby League Deadly Choices round match played at Vico Oval. 

Kangaroos set the pace early with four tries in the opening twenty minutes to lead 22-0. The Roosters looked to have kick started their recovery when Ty Grogan crossed just before the halftime break. 

But any chance of the Roosters saving the points was wiped soon after the restart when Kangaroos delivered two quick tries. Another soon after gave the homeside a 36-6 lead with twenty minutes of play remaining. 

However to their credit the Roosters finished full of running to grab two more tries through centre Gideon Larry and a second to Ty Grogan.

The Roosters under 18 side remain a top contender in the premiership race following their 36-10 win over Kangaroos on Sunday. 

Centre Ryan Gallagher scored a double while Keyarn Porter, Dennis Sceibel, Aiden Carson, Clayton Dalgety and Matt Serra were the other try scorers. 

Kangaroos won the reserve grade 40-24 over the Roosters. This Sunday the Atherton Roosters play the Yarrabah Seahawks at Yarrabah.
