After an agonising loss in the grand final 12 months ago, Queensland has sent a warning shot to the rest of the Super W with a record-breaking 112-0 over the Melbourne Rebels on Sunday.
Queensland dominated every aspect of the game and opened the scoring in the first two minutes of the match.
Captain Lori Cramer finished with 32 points while Ivania Wong, Alana Elisaia and Alyssa Lefau-Fakaosilea notched up hat-tricks.
"I think just respecting the ball and when we had the ball, making it count and building phases and staying patient and having faith that we'd get over the line," Cramer told rugby.com.au.
"We are a completely different side and I think just staying composed and recognising when we have momentum, capitalising on the opportunities and putting the foot on the throat when we do have momentum and not taking it off."
It wasn't the way the Rebels would've liked to start their 2019 season after failing to win a game in the inaugural Super W season.
Nothing went the way of the Victorian side and despite adding depth to their squad, it could be long season for the team with the way the competition has grown from 2018.
However, Rebels captain Meretiana Robinson refused to offer excuses for her side.
"We'll go back to training, the coaches will have plenty to say ahead of the next round," she said.
"We'll just look to build, look ahead to the Brumbies and throw away this game."
