At a time when Australian rugby only seems to stop shooting itself in the foot when it pauses to reload, Perth Spirit’s maiden NRC title serves as a timely and jolting reminder that the game does indeed exist outside the so-called heartlands.
And then there were two. The NSW Country Eagles, the competition’s minor premiers, hosting Perth Spirit in Australia’s country music capital, Tamworth.
Irae Simone. Jake Gordon. Lukhan Tui. Izaia Perese. Taniela Tupou. They’ve all been outstanding during this season’s National Rugby Championship, and they all have one other thing in common.
Just two weekends of the National Rugby Championship remain, and one of the four teams in action this weekend will become just the second champion in the competition’s short history.
The Rugby Championship is over for another season, won by the dominant team achieving the maximum points possible. Hardly sporting of them, was it?
There’s no better way to phrase this, but it’s all just coming up Milhouse for Queensland Reds supporters.
