The rounds of the inaugural NRLW are over, and the first Grand Final is set to be a big one. The undefeated Broncos are set to meet the Roosters, who got their solo win in what was a big round for both teams.
Broncos remain undefeated to secure spot as Grand Final favourites.
Making it three from three with another win this week, the Broncos have secured their dominance after smashing the Warriors 32-10.
The first half was even on and off the scoreboard, but a second half resurgence saw the Broncos score 16 unanswered points. While both teams played great footy, the Warriors just could hold the dominance of the Broncos.
Ali Brigginshaw was in her usual fantastic form, with both her and Julia Robinson scoring doubles. Despite back rower Maitua Feterika being carried from the field with the knee injury, the Broncos are confident she’ll return for the grand final.
Roosters secure shock Grand Final spot
Despite being the only winless team before the game, the Roosters have joined their men’s team in the grand final, after beating the Dragons 26-0. While they only needed to win by 2 point to get into the big dance, their weekly improvements have seen them unstoppable against the Dragons.
Despite missing star halfback Maddison Studdon, the Roosters were better than ever. They missed five sideline conversions, but were dominant enough throughout the whole game that it barely mattered. Zahara Temara shone as halfback, and Taleena Simon bagged four tries.
While they looked dominant in their last few matches, the Dragons were error riddled and struggled against the preseason favourites. Despite her star performance last week, Honey Hireme struggled to contain the speedy backs of the Roosters
