2018 NRL WOMEN's GRAND FINAL

Recommended Posts

Quote

Three weeks of history-making rugby league comes down to two sides going into the NRL Holden Women's Premiership grand final with different journeys to tell.

The Broncos have cruised throughout the month-long season to finish undefeated and loom as the heavy favourites going into the decider.

It's been a different story for the Roosters, who up until last week's 26-0 win over the Dragons were struggling to click after strong expectations in the lead-up to the competition. They narrowly scraped through to the decider on for-and-against with results working in their favour despite the lone victory.

 

These two sides met in round two of the competition, with the Broncos coming out 14-4 victors at Allianz Stadium.

Brisbane's big names in Ali Brigginshaw, Brittany Breayley, Teuila Fotu-Moala and Chelsea Baker have been at their best, while the consistency of players like Julia Robinson and Ngatokotoru Arakua have added to the side's overall success.

The Roosters got more out of their big names in Ruan Sims, Karina Brown and Elianna Walton last week, and strike centre Isabelle Kelly's game went to another level as a result. Lavina O'Mealey also looked more settled in her third game of the season.

With more than 18 players featuring in the women's State of Origin clash in June, it shapes as a blockbuster state-like contest with the addition of several Kiwi Ferns representatives.

After an early Roosters penalty goal, Kimiora Nati scores. Sent to bunker and I think she lost the ball but there was already some ball on line before she lost it. Baker converts.

Broncos  6 - 2

10min: Tazmin Gray "try" but knocked on by Roosters?   No, it came forward off the head of a teammate - face, actually. I can't believe Taleena Simon didn't break her nose.

Temara misses the conversion. 6 - 6

Too early to follow live, but I just watched the highlights and Brisbane were far too good on the day. Good game.
