The Sydney Roosters woke up this morning last on the ladder but a masterclass from Taleena Simon sent them to the NRL Women's Grand Final with a 26-0 victory over the St George Illawarra Dragons.
The Roosters came into the game disappointed to not have picked up any points despite heading into the competition as favourites.
It promoted a change from coach Adam Hartigan to make a change with Zahara Temara coming into the halfback position for NSW Blues captain Maddie Studdon.
Temara's impact was almost instant as she controlled the middle, something that had been missing the past two weeks.
They started the game in lively fashion though with a try from Taleena Simon in the corner before the 25-year-old was gifted her double four minutes later after the Dragons dropped the ball 30 from their line.
Simon wasn't done just yet and topped off a stunning 11 minutes with a third try but with no conversions, the scored was 12-0.
Roosters were on top of the game with a 92 percent completion rate while the Dragons were hampered by errors but the Red V soon found their way into the game and were metres from the line before they had a penalty called against them.
The rest of the first half was littered with errors and penalties, leaving no momentum or flow for either team to capitalise on.
The Dragons worries continued in the second half as Simon became the first Rooster and NRL Women's player to score four tries in a single game as she went over.
St.George tried finding their way back into the match and almost did as they found themselves five metres out from the line but their attacking finish was lacking.
The Roosters continued to punish the Dragons for their defensive errors with debutant Brydie Parker going over.
The highlight of the match came from former Newcastle Jets goalkeeper Hannah Southwell with a blistering tackle on Isabelle Kelly.
Sydney finished the match on a high as Victoria Latu joined the try scoring party while Temara made her first conversion of the match.
The Roosters now face the undefeated Brisbane Broncos next Sunday on Grand Final day at 1:35pm at ANZ Stadium.
