The Saints started well with penetrating runs from outside centre Robyn King, captain Lou Allen and vice captain Nadia Dickinson and struck the first points when King converted a penalty.

The home pack continued a strong performance, winning back possession in both scrums and line outs but an expansive move from the Army saw them scored to 7-3 at the break.
Following the tug-o-war half time fun, the Saints returned with a few team changes which saw the addition of impact runners Sarah McKenna and Karina Page in the centres. The duo were returning from their Super 4s match that very morning.

The team put in a fantastic performance and Nadia Dickinson was named Forward of the Match with Robyn King taking the award for Back of the Match.
