The Sydney Roosters have booked themselves a spot in the preliminary finals with an overwhelming 30-6 victory over cross town rivals South Sydney at the SCG.
Luke Keary was masterful in the victory, floating on each side of the park to set up two tries in the first half alone.
Captain Boyd Cordner made a super return, scoring a try, before leaving the field shortly before half-time.
The premiers scored twice in the first 11 minutes and crossed for five tries all up in the opening 40 to lead 26-0 at the break.

The Rabbitohs eventually got on the board after 63 minutes with an Adam Reynolds try but it was far too little, far too late.
Souths will face the winner of Manly v Cronulla at ANZ Stadium next weekend.
