The second half started just as the first had finished, with the Waratahs on top.
McKenzie opened the scoring in the second half when she sliced through off a scrum play, before the Reds answered with a pick-and-go try from Bree-Anna Cheatham moments later.
It was all the home side after that however as Murphy a nd Emily Chancellor extended the lead with tries before Vella iced the title with her double.

Let Moana go and setup Timi Samoa and a Timi Tonga. I guarantee you that the support will be even stronger than that for the Fiji Drua. You only have to remember the support from The respective communities for Mate ma Tonga and Toa Samoa in Rugby League and also the national teams in Rugby Union. Both teams would be able to field teams equal to The Fiji drua or even better.Go to comments
