With Parramatta now in the NRLW competition I'm paying more attention to it. We are about halfway through the second game and I'm impressed with the athleticism of the backs and the power of the forwards. The Brisbane fullback (Tamika Upton) looks like the complete package, she's tall, mobile, breaks tackles with ease and competes well against girls nearly twice her size.

So far the two games have been very competitive, which suggests a slow and steady build of the league may be a better option instead of the all in lopsided league that the AFLW has become, and will stay for probably a long time.

15 minutes in and Parramatta have had three tries disallowed.

Enjoyed the three games today, especially the final one. :)

The girls don't hold back when carrying the ball, or with their crunching tackles, some of those hits looked every bit as hard as the mens.

Wet and wild in Wollongong today. Ball handling is going to be difficult.

Dragons so resilient in defense, even with a player off. Repelled Rooster raid after raid on the goalline

Thought the Roosters were a little lucky to make the finals, yet they end up Premiers.

Thought things just kept going against the Dragons in the final today.

Terrific win by Newcastle this afternoon. Excellent game with the score only blowing out in the last 5.

That Upton's a bloody jet and to be that good at 17 is scary. Take a bow, Jesse Southwell.
