Stadium titles a "huge success"

Posted: 3pm 24 May 2021

The Women’s National Rugby League Championships, held at Moreton Daily Stadium, have been acclaimed by Brad Donald, the NRL Player Pathways General Manager.

Queensland dominated the Under 19 competition having both finalists on Sunday. West Australia took the Open Women’s section.

In total, more than 350 players and officials were on the peninsula for the four-day (May 20-23) tournament to identify Australia’s “brightest talents”.

Great facilities

“The tournament was a huge success with players travelling from every state in Australia to participate,” said Donald.

“Players and staff were able to enjoy the great facilities in the Moreton Bay Regional Council area and the exceptional facilities at Redcliffe Dolphins and Moreton Daily Stadium.

“The NRL is appreciative of the efforts of all staff and players that made the journey, and the warm hospitality of everyone within the region.”

Sapphires shine

The Under 19 final saw Queensland Sapphires winning 16-4 against Queensland Rubys.

Tries by Keilee Joseph and Tiamo Williams gave Sapphires an 8-0 lead at the interval. Joseph went over again after the break followed by Baylee Davies.

Tyesha Mikaio scored a consolation for the Rubys just before the end.

Thrilling final

In the Open Women’s final, West Australia squeezed past First Nations Gems 10-6 in a thrilling encounter.

The 14 teams came from Northern Territory, South Australia, West Australia, Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Defence Force.

For the first time an Indigenous Invitational side took part – the First Nations Gems.
