Cooper Cronk and Luke Keary kicked twice for tries, leaving a James Tedesco show-and-go in the second-half as the only try that didn't come off the boot.

After Cronk got the Roosters moving with a kick for Ryan Matterson in the 20th minute to score, he landed the knockout blow before the break when he again booted the ball across field for the second-rower.

Keary also contributed with a grubber for Joesph Manu midway through the opening half, setting up the 18-6 half-time lead before Tedesco crossed after the break.

The five-eighth then finished the job with another perfectly placed for winger Reece Robinson on full-time.

Cronulla's loss was soured by a serious head knock to bench hooker James Segeyaro after he collided with Cronk's knee while trying to charge down a kick.

Matt Moylan was easily the Sharks' best in the first half after he was shifted to fullback for the injured Josh Dugan, while Valentine Holmes crossed twice on the right wing.

Moylan is the third fullback the Sharks have used in five matches.

He set up three line breaks and had one of his own before the break, and also threw a cut-out ball for Holmes' first try.
