NSW Women v Brumbies

NSW continued their unbeaten streak as they beat the Brumbies 24-5 but they were made to work for their win.

The Brumbies were able to hold onto the hold and had few errors to retain the bulk of the possession.

NSW spent a lot of time within the Brumbies 22 but strong defence from the opposition showed the home side would have to fight for every point.

A high tackle fro Brumbies lock Kate Brown’s was sin binned for a high tackle which ended up costing the team as NSW were able to get their first points of the day.

The second half was when NSW found their rhythm as Chloe Leaupepe found her second try of the match to extend their lead to 14-5.

But the home side continued to show a lack of composure despite this NSW were the winners and continued to be the feared team of the competition.

There was another rare patch from the Rebels but ended the first half having had no time in the Queensland 22.  

The second half saw the Rebels come out of the blocks and look for attacking opportunities but their momentum quickly ended when Sarah Riordan found the line in the 46th minute for her third of the game, taking the margin to 34 points following the conversion.
