Sore losers so sad
The QLD captain congratulated NSW as well?

I didn't see all of the game, but the bit I did was really impressive. Great speed all game from the look of it and some fantastic hits and great skill level.
Happy to watch a lot more of it.

It was a great game, totally enjoyed it. The girls were very talented. Good defence/hits, great passing, hardly any errors and no wrestling which was a big plus.

In a way they could show the boys a thing or to i.e. how to play the game the way it was designed.

Well done both teams.

I totally agree Russell , but I worry once Women's rugby league becomes a truly professional game with a week to week comp whether the same issues we hate about the NRL becomes an issue as well

The good thing could possibly be that many things we want to trial in the NRL can be trialled in the WNRL first ..... :idea:

Now why Kasiano and Gallen do that?

Now I know why my missus was watching intensely

A mate sent me a text that his partner’s niece was playing about 20 mins into the game. I started to watch and asked him which one. He replied, “The one with the long blonde hair”. That narrowed it down 😀

I wasn’t at all interested before the game but started watching. Really enjoyed it.

Then on Fox a commentator said that there was a player on each side, playing against one another, who were partners. For the week leading up they kept their distance.

Then, to paraphrase he said, “They just stuck to their tasks - head down, bums up.” 😀😀

What annoyed me was the commentators comparing the style of play for each of the girls to the male NRL players, until I started to see a lot of Paul Sironen in Apps.

Might be a winner this concept.

It was a big success.
Seeing so many young girls in the crowd reminded me of televised Netball games... Can only be a good thing to help grow the game.
I think it should stay on its own in prime time... If it's a curtain raiser to the men's Origin very few people will see it... It would Ge swallowed up by the men's game.
It wouldn't be broadcast live I doubt, a replay after the men's game or some 1am timeslot

Hopefully they make it into a proper 3 game series next year.

But surely they are not going to allow guys who have sex-changed into gals to compete unfairly? Imagine if a Jason Taumalolo crossed over!

I wonder if it's feasible seeing these girls aren't pros like the blokes.
Studdon had to resign her job as it was all getting too much.... It would be tough on all of them with other commitments travelling interstate etc over a 6 week period

I don't know , I heard a player wanting to play same night as the men's SOO series as a complete series

Would've thought they would want to stand alone so they get better coverage of their game

Ch 9 won't put their game live if they are played the same night

And on a 16 team comp , you'd have to think they would at least 15-20 years before they get enough depth player wise

That is where the NRL should step in... easiest way to grow the game would be for the NRL to sell the Womens SOO TV rights independently, pay the players involved say $10k per game over a 3 game series. Even if it runs at a loss which it probably would, the dividends would be two fold, serving as an advertisment for womens NRL, whilst also lifting the external work committments off the the players allowing them to become more professional and thus lifting the standard.

It would be foolish of the NRL not to exploit the ready made market.
