Young roosters crow forward
The Atherton Senior Roosters Under 18 side have kept their premiership hopes alive after downing the Tully Tigers 28-12 in Saturday's elimination final at Barlow Park.
Tries to Jackson Fahlstrom, Limferd Lui and Morgan Royee Asaki in the first session helped the Roosters set up an 18-0 lead at the break.
Stout second-half defence from the Roosters helped them assert their dominance as they shut out the Tigers attack across the park.
Prop Sawyer Nehow had another outstanding game for Roosters, who will now be full of confidence going into their next final.
Sudden death finals continue for the young Roosters this Saturday against Kangaroos with a 2.30pm kick off at Barlow Park.
The winner of this clash will advance to the 9 September grand final against Mareeba.
