NSW Cup Round 23 Match Preview vs Sydney Roosters

Blacktown Workers out to keep finals momentum rolling.

Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles will be looking to break into the NSW Cup all-important top five with a win over the Sydney Roosters on Sunday.

With four rounds remaining of the regular season, Blacktown Workers sit sixth on 26 points, equal with the fifth-placed Penrith.

A win over the bottom placed Roosters, combined with some favourable results, could see Blacktown Workers inside the top five by Sunday night.

The Panthers play the Warriors (second) and the Newtown Jets (fourth) play South Sydney Rabbitohs (seventh).

With matches against the Panthers, Warriors and Bulldogs (third) to finish the season, it’s another reason why Blacktown Workers can’t afford to drop their bundle against the Roosters. The Sea Eagles beat the Roosters 48-6 at 4 Pines Park in round 18.

Blacktown Workers go into the match full of confidence following a 28-12 win over Newtown and a 36-20 victory over St George-Illawarra in their past two matches.

The Sea Eagles ran in seven tries to four against the Dragons at Shellharbour with full-back Jake Toby and winger Ryan Garner getting a double each. Cooper Johns kicked four from seven goals.

The Sea Eagles play the Sydney Roosters at Wentworth Park, Glebe, on Sunday, August 6. Kick-off 2pm.
