I though NSW city and country in the U19s were standouts, especially City. Only saw a little bit of the QLD teams and they seemed strong but not as strong as the NSW teams.
The Gems were good, but I think the ADF could win the opens, they seem faster and fitter than the others.

The good U19s teams would beat most of the Opens teams I think, they are just faster and more organised.

Did anyone watch any of the games? I watched two of the U19 games. Had to mute as the commentator was boring zzzzzzz

I have to say I applaud the guy for commentating all day and he is keen. But he gets a lot of things wrong. It would be hard as he doesn't know the players.

The game on now, ADF vs Gems is much better than the opens games yesterday, its fast and defence is good.
the Gems really ramped up and played very well to get a hard fought 4 - 0 win. One of those low scoring games where it was good defence that dictated the score

WA are on fire in the opens.

QLD have been doing well but behind in a lot of ways in terms of women's RL. It was great to see them run an equiv of the Tarsha Gale this year, albeit a tournament style over a weekend instead of a competition. Lets hope they keep growing

Yes hopefully next year there will be more games and more teams (Tweed, Norths/Redcliffe, Tigers) involved but definitely wiser to play in the TG Cup.

So did they sack the live stream people today? Really poor quality so far stuck on the half way line and nothing else?

The Queensland Sapphires have taken out the under-19s Harvey Norman National Championships final with a 16-4 win over the Rubys at Moreton Daily Stadium.

In an all-Queensland decider, the Sapphires led 8-0 at the break courtesy of tries to Keilee Joseph and Tiamo Williams, before Joseph claimed a second in the 33rd minute.

Rubys lock Tiana Raftstrand-Smith was awarded player of the tournament.

No one is playing NRLW.
No one is contracted to an NRLW team at the moment, well maybe except to Brisbane as they cheat

The ARL Commission continues to finalise details around the fourth season of the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership with two more teams likely to be added in 2021.

However, it's understood part of discussions includes a possible marquee points system coming back into play that may see inaugural clubs lose some of their players to rivals.
