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.
