THE Illawarra Steelers’ Tarsha Gale side continued their unbeaten start to the 2018 season on Saturday, when they thrashed the Canberra Raiders 80-16 at Bill Andriske Oval, Mollymook.
After chalking up 176 points through the first three rounds, the Daniel Lacey-coached Steelers went even better in round four.
Taneisha Roberts opened the scoring, with the Steelers scoring three quick tries before the Raiders hit back.
However, from there, it was all one-way traffic, with the Steelers adding six tries before the halftime break, to make it 58-6.
The hosts in red and white didn’t slow down in the second, as Rhiannon Brown (two), Lilly-Rose Bennett, Taneisha Roberts and Michaela Scutts crossed before the Raiders hit back with two tries.
However, Weatherall finished the victory off in style, scoring the final try in the 59th minute. Bronte Girdler landed the conversion to round out the scoring.
