I was tossing up where to start a thread. I was going with AUS RL then thought I'd try here.

My money's on General RL

I reckon all three. Whoever coined the phrase about herding cats never tried getting RL fans to all pull in the same direction.

I do not think Queensland were expecting this!

QLD 0:14 NSW with two decent chances bombed by the Blues to boot.

A great first half for the Blues - probably better than even they hoped for.

Some on there would moan about there being this forum for it!

Blues blew that try

That's the third chance where quicker hands would have seen them over easily.

Queensland finally trouble the scoreboard. They look a lot more fired up in this half.

Did the Blues burn themselves out early?

Maybe not - Caitlan Johnston just smashed through to score by the posts.

Johnston try

Phew! even womens SOO is too stressful to watch when you're a NSWer. I keep expecting Qld to come back. It could be 20-0 with three minutes left and I'd still be nervous.

A bad read by Chapman of a chip, and the Maroons score again, with the conversion bouncing in off the crossbar.

Oh yeah, it's 70 minute matches for the women Down Under. I keep forgetting that.

Well done, NSW. A blistering first half and a tough second.

Imagine how good it would be if they were both in season. Almost RFL levels of scheduling. 🙂

The women are currently playing, just not in the NRLW.

Hot start Blues. Should have been out of sight. Strong across the park. Izzy Kelly outstanding. Pound for pound possibly the most deceptively powerful player in RL.

Tarryn Aiken took a long time to get going. Ali Brigginshaw might have run her race, at least at Origin level.

Final score probably flatters the Maroons. Even when creeping back into the contest, they never looked as dangerous as the Blues.

Loved the game, loved the occasion. Loved seeing the crowd.

And with that said, how annoying is Gould. He says something he thinks is clever and then says the same thing over and over... he is so smug it is nauseating.
