Brumbies women fight into final


The ACT Women’s side will face Queensland in the grand final match at the Australian Championships on Tuesday.

The Brumbies managed to fight back against NSW Country on Monday morning having trailed their closest geographical opponent 21-7. 

The ACT Women’s team then launched an all out attacking blitz with three unanswered tries to claim the match 26-21 and move into the final with Queensland, which kicks-off at 11.30am on Tuesday morning.

Brumbies Captain Sharni Williams was pleased her side had made the final, but was quick to remind her supporters and teammates that the job wasn’t finished yet. 

“It’s a big achievement for these girls to have made the final, we’ve worked hard and it’s pleasing that we’ve been able to make it this far in the competition,” Williams said.

“But there is still one last hurdle to get over and we are all very much focussed on the game tomorrow morning against Queensland. 

“During the last two days of rugby they’ve shown that they are probably the team to beat so being given a chance to knock them off in the final is exciting.”

The Brumbies were beaten 10-0 by Queensland on Saturday in their pool match, but will be encouraged by other wins over Sydney and NSW Country.
