Nakia Davis-Welsh was the star of the show as the Redfern All Blacks completed a dominant 58-12 win over the Greenacre Tigers in Round 12 of the Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
The fullback, fresh off a victory in the Harvey Norman Interstate Challenge, notched up a stunning five-try haul, with her first-half hat-trick all but taking the result beyond reach for the Tigers. Davis-Welsh now sits atop the competition's try scorers' list, one four-pointer ahead of Sharks star Corban McGregor. Chloe Leaupepe was also in fine form at Belmore Sports Ground, completing a treble of her own in the second stanza and engineering a strong attack from five-eighth.
The win brings the All Blacks a step closer to the minor premiership, but they still sit equal with the Glenmore Park Brumbies, who enjoyed a Round 12 bye due to the withdrawal of the Berkeley Vale Panthers. The Tigers, meanwhile, sit in fifth and while they are three points clear of the sixth-placed Cronulla-Caringbah Sharks, they are not yet assured a place in the top-five finals series.
