Another week, another Waratahs Super W win and another memorable prop try.
This time it was Eva Karpani stealing the show with a 60m runaway effort at the SCG today as defending champions NSW romped to a 67-10 win over the Rebels.
“Just exceptional,” Olympic gold medallist Chloe Dalton said on Stan Sport.

Prop’s epic 60m runaway try
“The try of the game, it’s got to be.”
Incredibly, Mahalia Murphy scored five tries to continue her scintillating form yet was overshadowed by Karpani.
Last week it was fellow prop Bridie O’Gorman going viral with her athletic five pointer against the Force.

“I think it’s better, she’s earned a soft drink after this game,” Wallabies legend Tim Horan said of Karpani’s effort.
“She has run 60 metres.”
The Waratahs have now won 20 games straight.
“You talk about winning being a habit, that’s a rite of passage now,” Justin Harrison said on Stan Sport.
The Waratahs appear to be on a grand final collision course with the Fijiana Drua, who crushed the Force 45-17 today.
The Drua led 45-0 at halftime before taking their foot off the gas at Leichhardt Oval.
“We just remembered why we’re here,” Force captain Trilleen Pomare said in explaining a much improved second half.
“We have I think nine mums on our team, they’ve all left their babies at home, that’s what we’re doing. We just have to remember why we’re here and go again and scrap that first half. It was horrible.
“We’ve just got to keep building, we have more in the tank and we’re still scratching the surface.”
