The Sydney Roosters registered their 50th win over the Penrith Panthers in the NRL after beating them 42 points to 6 in front of 11,879 fans at Centrebet Stadium.
It was a battle between two sides at polar opposites on the table - Roosters sitting second and Panthers languishing outside the eight, fighting for their finals aspirations.
Panthers pounced on a flat start from the Roosters with David Simmons continuing his knack of finding the try-line for the home side.
After the early setback the Roosters worked their way into the contest, earning repeat sets to pile the pressure on the Panthers. Daniel Tupou breaking through in the 14th minute from a lovely Maloney pass to slide in.
The Roosters had woken up and were beginning to punish the wasteful Panthers who after throwing two balls over the sideline didn't touch the ball until well after the half hour mark.
In that time, the Roosters scoffed at the stat about them being the worst side at creating repeat sets, producing two back to back. The added defense tolled on the home side, as Jake Friend found a small hole to run through for the try.
To make matters worse, Mose Masoe and Adam Docker were added to the growing list of injuries for the Penrith side with broken hands.
Once the whistle for the second half had sounded, the Roosters started to flex their premiership muscles. They produced a five try salvo to put away the Panthers convincingly and leave too much for the mountain men to do late in the season for a finals push.
Cordner picked up the first in the 43rd minute after running a nice line to leave him one-on-one with Moylan and there was only going to be one winner. His second row partner, Aidan Guerra had a simple effort himself from an inside ball to stretch it to 24-6 after 51 minutes.
Next Maloney went through a large gap provided by the weary Panthers to register a four pointer and putting the game beyond reach.
Tuivasa-Sheck and Cordner added tries in the final twenty minutes, the latter making it a brace to give a healthy boost to the Roosters points difference heading into the final rounds of the regular season.
