The Singleton Roosters rectified last week's narrow loss to finals contender Warners Bay with a confidence boosting 36-point victory over Killarney Vale.

The Roosters would be without a long list of senior contributors including Matt Cornelius, Zach Bray, Jacob Welsh, Simone Corfe, Conrad Smith as well as teenage trio Nathan Swan, Darcy and Cameron Saunders.

Yet they would prevail in the middle after the final break as late goals to Sam Brasington, Cameron White and playing coach Andrew Scott secured a 10.9 (69) to 5.3 (33) victory.

"Its the first time Singleton has defeated the Bombers since returning to the top division," cheered one club official.

The result would also mark a fourth straight home win for the senior side before their adoring fans.
