WATCH: That's the perfect debut as Baker shines

NRLW: Chelsea Baker produced a sparkling display for Brisbane Broncos against St George Illawarra Dragons on Sunday afternoon at a sun-drenched Suncorp Stadium.

The Gladstone Wallaby and Australian Jillaroo scored two tries and five goals in the Broncos' 30-4 win in round one of the inaugural National Rugby League Women's League.

Baker produced a diagonal run to the left-hand corner for the first after just three minutes to set the standard on the way to a 24-4 half-time lead.

Dragons fought back when fullback Sam Bremner scored her team's only try for the game four minutes later, but Broncos' forwards re-asserted their authority.

Interchange forward Ngatokotoru Arakua ran for more than 100 metres in the first half and scored a try just after half-time.

But the afternoon belonged to the Gladstone flyer with her shock of pink hair. Baker and her Broncos team's next assignment is against Sydney Roosters on Friday at Allianz Stadium at 5.15pm.
