Graham concussed as Roosters beat Dogs
James Graham suffered a worrying
head knock while Mitchell Pearce
and James Maloney won the battle
of the halves in the Sydney Roosters’
24-10 win over Canterbury at ANZ
Stadium last night.
Graham spent most of the game
on the sideline after suffering a
concussion in the 27th minute while
attempting a tackle on Aidan Guerra.
The Canterbury captain’s head
collided with the Roosters back-rower’s
hip and after spending several minutes
on the ground, he was taken up the
tunnel and did not come back on.
The English prop was making his
return from a four-week suspension
and his loss was immediately felt.
The Bulldogs had been leading 4-0
when he was concussed, but after
Graham went off, the Roosters ran
in two quick tries to take a 10-4 half-
Roosters hooker Jake Friend
produced a beautiful cut-out ball
to put Daniel Tupou over and four
minutes later Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
made the Bulldogs defence look
ordinary as he sliced through Trent
Hodkinson and Tony Williams close
to the line.
Pearce and Maloney controlled
the game better than their Bulldogs
counterparts and made a strong case
for them to replace Hodkinson and
Josh Reynolds as the New South
Wales Origin halves.
The Roosters went up 18-0 when
Sam Perrett made a mess of a
monster Pearce bomb which came
down a metre from the Dogs tryline
and Mitchell Aubusson mopped up.
A try to Guerra put the icing on the
cake for the Roosters before Moses
Mbye scored a consolation try for the
The Roosters — and potentially
NSW — received a scare late in the
game when star Michael Jennings
went from the field and sat on the
sidelines with ice on his knees.
Roosters coach Trent Robinson
said Jennings was taken off because
of muscle tightness and he was not in
doubt for Origin I on May 27.
While he stayed out of the
discussion about who should be the
NSW halves, Robinson said he was
pleased with the way Pearce and
Maloney had dealt with the pressure-
“ I think they ’ve done well and there
were a lot of questions around them,”
“ I think (NSW coach Laurie Daley)
would have known (before last night)
what his gut feeling was and I think
he’ ll go with that. ”
Bulldogs coach Des Hasler said
Graham had also picked up a knee
injury in his tackle on Guerra and
would be assessed today.
He said Graham’s exit from the
game was no excuse and the team
was guilty of too many fundamental
“ We didn’t play well,” Hasler said.
“ When you complete only eight of
16 sets in the second half, make one-
one-one misses, a high error count,
trying to play a Roosters side that ’s in
good form on 39% possession. But all
of those things are self-inflicted.
“ You’ve probably heard that sort
of stuff in media conferences before
but we have got to get that sorted
if we want to do anything in this
competition.” — AAP

Cowboy Michael Morgan scores against the Brisbane Broncos last night in
Brisbane was no match for perfection
as North Queensland flexed its
premiership muscle with a flawless
completion rate in a 31-20 win over the
Broncos last night.
The battle of the Q ueensland
heavyweights lived up to its hype, but it
was the Cowboys who made the bigger
The club completed a perfect 34 from
Emerging superstar Michael Morgan
grabbed a hat-trick.
Resurgent New South Wales prop
James Tamou plowed upfield for 193m.
It was all Brisbane early as the NRL
leader opened up a 12-point lead as
wingers Lachlan Maranta and Jordan
Kahu scored out wide within the first
quarter of the game, Corey Parker
nailing a conversion from either
It was not to last, as Tamou, who had
99m by the 30 minute mark, hauled
the Cowboys upfield and back into the
Morgan was troubled with an ankle
complaint but it did not stop him from
dragging Anthony Milford over the line
as he scored the Cowboys first try.
A slice of Thurston brilliance then
found Ethan Lowe running off his hip
and the newly re-signed second-rower
strode over untouched in the 35th
minute, Thurston converting both tries
to lock up the scores 12-12.
A Thurston penalty-goal in the
shadows of half-time gave the home side
a 14-12 lead.
The Maroons maestro then put in a
pinpoint kick for Gavin Cooper who
reached out and planted the ball five
minutes after the break, the conversion
opening up an eight-point lead.
Maranta grabbed his second in the 51st
minute off the back of some Milford
magic and when the Cowboys gave away
a gift penalty in front of the sticks five
minutes later, Parker locked the scores at
The Cowboys piled on the pressure with
three repeats sets, but the determined
Broncos defence refused to crack for a
time, holding firm until the 70th minute.
The line finally cracked, Morgan
bagging a second and giving the
Cowboys a 26-20 lead before a Lachlan
Coote field goal just two minutes later
iced the game.
A third to Morgan in the dying minutes
simply a bonus for the Cowboys.
Broncos coach Wayne Bennett was
pleased with his side’s ability to stay in
the game until Morgan blew the score
“ I thought it was probably a fair
scoreboard up until then,” he said.
“ I’m not disappointed in the Broncos
“They were on their game and they
played really, really well.
“ We won’t walk away from here
disappointed about what we did.”
Cowboys coach Paul Green praised the
impeccable completion rate.
“ You certainly put yourself in every
game if you’ve got that sort of ball
control,” he said.
“They ’re a team that plays pretty quick
off the back of some quick play the balls
so we needed to have a high completion
“ It was very pleasing that the boys were
able to execute when they needed to.”
