Roosters flog Doggies to reach NRL prelim finals

THE COWBOYS will be hoping the referring blunders are out of the way, following Friday night’s NRL semi-final between the Sydney Roosters and Canterbury Bulldogs.

The Roosters won 38-12 to set up a showdown with Brisbane next week.

But the game was full on controversy, most notably when prop Kane Evans was awarded a try despite grounding the ball short.


It came at a pivotal point of the do-or-die clash. The minor premiers went from being 8-4 up early in the second half to pile on a bunch of tries and claim dominance over the Bulldogs.

Tonight, North Queensland hosts Cronulla. In previous years, the Cowboys have been prevented from making it to a grand final due to major referring blunders.

The one and only time they reached the showdown was against the Wests Tigers in 2005, when they went home runners up.
