The local lads bashed Bedford Tigers the same team they had seen off to win the 2014 Grand Final to hit the ground running. Stefan Gallucci led the charge with four tries in a 38-16 triumph at California Road. New recruit James Hodgson, man-of-the-match Aaron Throne, Josh Meadows and Adam Peel also went over with player-coach Paul Ashbridge landing three conversions. Ashbridge said: There were a hell of a lot of good individual performances, but most importantly we played well as a unit. Weve got a few things to concentrate on in training, but the desire and the will to win which we displayed in this game give us a strong platform to build on. Roosters are back on home turf again this Saturday when they entertain the Kings Lynn Black Knights (3pm).
