Badger is terrible. She needs to stay on the sideline. Actually, she's a hopeless touchie as well. She just needs to go.

This doesn’t add much to the conversation but she was my PE teacher in high school. I also had the Aus womens rugby captain as a PE teacher as well. It boggles the mind I didn’t come a professional athlete myself with all this tuition.

Was listening to an NRL podcast Boom Rookies this AM and they referred our ladies team as the W(h)eels.

So I've written them off as something that should never be on TV for the simple reason that they'd get belted by the Harold Matts team. But I have to say it does have entertainment value. Some of the contact is excellent. I even saw a squirell grip.

Go drown some kittens you mongrel.

The knights look better with the ball, but we are still in it because of the scramble.

We’re forcing errors and playing with ok width. We are owed some luck from the footy gods next half.

What game have you watched. We were the better side with the ball, but couldn't hold on to the damn thing long enough. But good to see we won anyway.

What a worthy captain. So well spoken and intelligent. Our mens team captain could do with a few pointers.

She also led from the front and had an exceptional woman of the match performance.

We have some very good players in this team that if they can settle down and play with a little more composure could really give it a red hot crack. The Broncos though are way to experienced, composed and all round talented not to win it again this year.

Go WEELS!

Dude we agree. They weren't dropping it and we were. Hence what I said.

ball handling seems to be the area that needs to most work/improvement

gees our girl's defense was good, they certainly can hit hard

I can't be too critical as the girls are just newbies. If you take a look at AFLW a few years in, their skill level has really improved from the fumble fest and poor kicking from a few years ago.
