Sydney Roosters' big-money off-season signings finally hit their straps on Monday and it was Parramatta that bore the brunt, the home side inflicting a record 50-0 win over Parramatta at Allianz Stadium.

Sonny Bill Williams and Michael Jennings both scored tries for the Roosters and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck bagged a hat-trick as the hosts ran in nine unanswered four-pointers.

Ricky Stuart said after being appointed it would take time to turn the Eels around and his words look to be prophetic as he experienced the biggest defeat of his long coaching career in front of a crowd of just over 18,000.

Roosters coach Trent Robinson hailed his side's performance but admitted they were helped by a nine-day turnaround and not having to travel following the shutout against the Broncos last Saturday.

"I was confident we could win, but I didn't think it would be by that much, and you can never be sure if you can back up a good defensive performance with another one," Robinson said.

"Going from a Saturday to a Monday allows time to work on combos and we spent a day on it and that's why our attack was a lot better tonight. It was nice to see."

Robinson's decision to switch Williams to the right edge paid dividends as the New Zealand superstar produced his best attacking display since returning the NRL.

In addition to his try, he destroyed the Eels with four offloads in the opening 20 minutes and produced a stunning pass to create Tuivasa-Sheck's third try.

"He's a natural right-sided player, he feels more comfortable there and the carries, the passes and the offloads came off," he said.

"You can't coach what he's got and it came out a few times tonight."

Eels coach Stuart made no excuses for his side's display, and said they simply were not good enough to deal with their star-studded opponents.

"You can't sweeten up a bitter pill," he said.

"There was a lot of effort in the first half. They tried their hearts out until the end but they just weren't good enough.

"They outclassed us, outplayed us and were too good for us. They're a very, very good football team and they were on tonight."

Jared Waerea-Hargreaves opened the scoring after 12 minutes when he powered over after Parramatta winger Vai Tautai fumbled Mitchell Pearce's teasing kick, before Williams added his second of the season.

Tautai's defensive frailties were again exposed by Pearce when he found Tuivasa-Sheck with a well-weighted kick and the winger acrobatically climbed above the Eels wide man to break his scoring duck.

Tuivasa-Sheck didn't have to wait long to double his career tally as the Roosters once again roasted the Eels' right-flank to score a fourth try five minutes before halftime.

The second half saw the Eels find good field position but two scoring opportunities were squandered when Ben Roberts twice knocked on from dummy-half.

Their sloppy play was punished in ruthless fashion when Jennings opened his account for the club in the right corner five minutes after the restart.

That try opened the floodgates as the Eels capitulated, conceding four tries in the final 16 minutes as Tuivasa-Shek completed his treble before Daniel Mortimer and Daniel Tupou got in on the act.
