NSW Wheelchair Too Good for Queensland

NSW have claimed their fourth consecutive Wheelchair Rugby League Interstate Challenge victory with a resounding 54-18 win over Queensland at Quay Centre in Olympic Park on Saturday afternoon.

Six tries from Vice-Captain Brad Grove inspired the victory, while captain Craig Cannane, and his son Cory, also got their names on the scoresheet.

A rampant first-half performance saw them take a comfortable 32-6 lead at the break, with three unanswered tries to open their encounter before Queensland broke their deadlock after 20 minutes.

Although a spirited performance from Queensland in the second-half, with an early converted try, it wasn't enough as NSW ran away with a dominant win on home soil.

Captain Craig Cannane was ecstatic with his sides performance and paid significant credit to his team-mates following the win.

"They've done a great job on the field and coming off the bench," Cannane told

"it's an honour to lead these guys...they're like brothers and I'm proud I get to go out there and lead them on."

Grove also spoke with enormous pride after an impressive individual performance.

"I've represented my country and represented NSW in the Interstate Challenge and it's just the best feeling."
