The Brisbane Broncos women’s side have done what the Sydney Roosters men’s side couldn’t do and have secured a three-peat in season 2020. LIVE BUILD UP HERE.
The Sydney Roosters have fought their way back into the NRLW grand final after looking at risk of being blown off the park early by the Brisbane Broncos on Sunday afternoon.
The Broncos lead 12-10 at the halftime break thanks to two early tries. Fullback Tamika Upton finished off a sleek 50m play to put them ahead 6-0 after just three minutes, and back-rower Amber Hall doubled the advantage just five minutes later.
But the defending premiers didn’t have it their own way. Roosters centre Yasmin Meakes crossed in the 13th minute, and 20-year-old Quincy Dodd barged her way over to reduce the margin to two points.
In appallingly wet conditions that gave an insight into what Penrith and Melbourne can expect in the NRL grand final later in the evening, the Roosters bombed several chances to take the lead late in the half as the weather contributed to a number of dropped balls.
