re­sulted in a WA scrum five me­tres from the line.

Rovira took ad­van­tage of the penalty from the scrum, tak­ing the quick tap and div­ing over under the posts.

When the half-time siren sounded the Ris­ing held an 18-8 lead but they weren’t done yet, send­ing it back down­field and looked to have their fourth of the match, only to have Sean McMa­hon de­nied by a well-timed tackle from Palmyra prop Joe Sav­age with the ball lost be­fore ground­ing.

In the sec­ond half, a long-range box kick from scrumhalf Justin Turner popped up for Lacey to sprint away from the chas­ing de­fence and Bur­ton’s con­ver­sion saw the vis­i­tors back within just two points, 18-16.

The gap wasn’t close for long as Ti­mani crossed for his sec­ond and this started another run of tries for the Ris­ing, with Cadeyrn Neville, Veainu and Luke Burgess all cross­ing to give them a 44-16 lead.

The fi­nal score was 44-24.
