Schoolgirl Alysia Fakaosilea starred in the Queensland Reds Rugby Tens win over NSW Waratahs last night.
Queensland started the morning with a considerable 36-0 win of Melbourne Rebels before NSW ensured they kept their perfect record intact with a 15-0 win over the Brumbies.
The stage was set for a Rugby Tens State of Origin showdown.
The Reds were trailing NSW until the final seconds of regulation time when Sammie Treherne scored to level the game and sending the game into golden point extra-time.
They were deep into the second half of extra time and neither team could break the deadlock.
Enter 17-year-old Fakaosilea.
She took down Waratahs player Olivia Brooks in a crunching tackle before an offload pass graced her hands on the sideline where she went on to score the winning try.
Fakaosilea was awarded the Global Tens MVP after her efforts over the two-day competition.
Reds captain Kirby Sefo told Rugby.com.au the opportunity to be a part of the tournament was an invaluable opportunity for her team to show off their quality.
"It’s important to see that women's rugby is good rugby and people are really buzzing over what we did tonight," she said.
