Baker and Sulter star in Capras’ win
RUGBY LEAGUE: The CQ Capras women have made history by winning its first-ever game in round one of the BHP Premiership against Easts Tigers in Brisbane on Sunday.
Capras won 14-6 in a sensational team debut.
A diving Chelsea Baker flew through the try line after 12-minutes to post the game's first try.
Tigers then attacked and were rather unfortunate when the ball slipped out of Morgan Te Oka's reach.
Tannum Seagals' Krystal Sulter suffered the same fate but just moments later, Bree Spreadborough spread wide to cross the try line as Capras entered the halftime lead 10-0 ahead.
The game was played end-to-end as both teams went deep into their attacking lines.
The host's defense wilted as Kelli Dunlop all but ended the contest with a try and an unassailable lead.
The Tigers did get one back via Keishan Hala as a consolation prize.
A win for the Capras men was not meant to be as the team lost 44-4 - its 10th straight defeat since round 14 last season and 23rd out of 25 matches since round one last year.
Capras were competitive early and Maika Tudravu scored the team's only try after 11 minutes.
However, the Tigers posted 36 points to nil after halftime.
