This time it was Eva Karpani who stole the show with a runaway 60m effort at SCG today as defending champions NSW cruised to a 67-10 win over the Rebels.
“Just outstanding,” Olympic gold medalist Chloe Dalton told Stan Sport.

“The try for the match, it has to be.”
Incredibly, Mahalia Murphy scored five tries to continue her scintillating form but was overshadowed by Karpani.
Last week, it was teammate Bridie O’Gorman who went viral with her athletic five-pointer against the Force.

“I think it’s better, she deserved a soft drink after that game,” Wallabies legend Tim Horan said of Karpani’s efforts.
“She ran 60 yards.”
The Waratahs have now won 20 games in a row.
“You say winning is a habit, it’s a rite of passage now,” Justin Harrison said on Stan Sport.
The Waratahs look to be on a big final collision course with the Fijiana Drua, who crushed the Force 45-17 today.
The Drua led 45-0 at half-time before slowing down at the Leichhardt Oval.
“We just remembered why we are here,” Force captain Trilleen Pomare said of a much better second half.
“We have, I think, nine mums in our team, they’ve all left their babies at home, that’s what we do. We just have to remember why we’re here and go back and give up this first half. It was horrible .
“We just have to keep building, we have more in the tank and we’re still scratching the surface.”
