The South Sydney Rabbitohs have continued their perfect start to the new season after recording a comfortable 48-6 victory over the Bulldogs on Good Friday.

While lock Jasmin Allende starred once again with two tries to her name, it was the experience of Maddie Studdon that proved instrumental in their eight-try rout.  

Studdon crossed for two tries of her own in the first half while also continuing her impressive record with the boot, nailing seven conversions from eight attempts to help guide her side to back-to-back victories. 

The newly formed CRL Newcastle outfit has endured a horror start to their new 2018 campaign, unable to stop a barnstorming Mounties outfit as they ran away with a 50-0 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Although boasting Jillaroos stars such as Isabelle Kelly and Caitlin Moran, their formidable combination did little damage to a confident Mounties outfit as they ran in nine unanswered tries to record their second win of the season. 

Monique Donovan and Tahlia Hunter had strong showings with two tries each, while Simaima Taufa proved unstoppable through the middle-third as she laid the perfect platform for her outside backs to work their magic. 

The Mounties will enjoy a week off ahead of their clash against Penrith Brothers in Round 4, while CRL Newcastle will host the Bulldogs in their first home game of the season.  

While the Rabbitohs and Mounties both recorded commanding victories in Round 2, it was Cronulla Caringbah who stole the show as they blew Wentworthville completely off the park with an emphatic 108-0 win on Saturday afternoon. 

It was a scintillating attacking display that saw the Sharks run in 20 tries with Talesha Quinn and Nita Maynard both scoring four, while veteran Ruan Sims and Shontelle Towers recorded hat-tricks of their own.

Jordan Baker’s stunning individual performance saw her score two tries and post 12 conversions to record a 30-point tally, with the Sharks relentless performance on either side of the ball helping them shutout a poor Magpies outfit. 

Penrith Brothers were unlucky not to come away with two competition points in Round 1 after a tough 22-20 loss to the Sharks, but bounced back to form this weekend after recording a gutsy 20-10 victory over Cabramatta. 

Lock forward Moesha Muna posted two tries as she inspired her side to their first win of the season, while halfback Ashlee Harrison put in a strong showing and is combining well with her halves partner Letitia Taylor. 

Penrith Brothers will now face a North Sydney Bears outfit fresh off the bye, while Cabramatta will look to record their first win of the season against a battling Magpies side.
