They both come off good seasons to date, as New South Wales look to finish this competition undefeated with a win tonight, while the Reds will aim for refirst-roundtheir first round loss to the Tahs.
The top two ranked sides, from the five team competition, qualify for the Super W final automatically, which both did with a round left.
The competition took a break for the Commonwealth Games, which played perfectly into their favour, with the Brumbies, Waratahs and Reds men all having home games this round, setting up potential double header scenarios.
Even briefly looking at the results so far, and it’s obvious NSW are far and away in the best form, their smallest winning margin being 18 points (vs Queensland, Round 1).
Worth mentioning that the Tahs seem to have traded attack for defence, conceding just 15 points across four games, at 3.75 per game!
Attack sees 131 points over four games to the Tahs, at more than 32.75 per game, but Qld scored fractionally more, with 134 over four games, conceding 38 more than NSW over the comp so far.
Some hope for Queensland – the Tahs only come third on the try scoring tally with 19, as the Reds have scored 21. Western Force lead it with 22 for the record.
Alysia Fakao-Silea has been a standout for Queensland, coming third in the total points tally, and second in the tries ladder, and she is someone who will know what it is to beat NSW, having done it in the Brisbane Global Tens final.
NSW have the defence to beat Queensland, not to mention a vibrant attack.
