Roosters rampant over Tigers

6:39 am on 22 August 2013

The Sydney Roosters continued their march towards a first NRL minor premiership since 2004 with a 56-14 trouncing of the struggling Wests Tigers on Monday night in Sydney.

The Tigers trailed only 14-6 at half-time, but the Roosters flexed their attacking muscle and blew away Mick Potter's side with seven tries to clock up a half-century of points for the second time this season.

The Roosters coach Trent Robinson paid tribute to his side's second half display and said the depth of talent in his squad allowed him to withdraw Williams with 15 minutes remaining.

Williams had been out for a couple of weeks, and his coach says he'll get plenty of game time in the next few weeks including the playoffs.
