Sam Walker made it look easy to come up with the match-winning plays but Roosters coach Trent Robinson lauded his team’s patience on their way to securing their 11th win of the season.

Cowboys flyer Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow made a statement at fullback but Walker brushed his goal-kicking woes aside to steal the show late as the Roosters overcame North Queensland 34-18 on Saturday.

Walker came up with a match-defining try and two try assists in the final 15 minutes after both sides were locked 18-18 in 29-degree heat at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
