The final clash of the day was a true state of origin with New South Wales Navy taking on hosts Queensland.
A strong performance by Tomas Scotti and Goki Saito helped the visitors to a 4-0 win.

Scotti delivered with a hat-trick across both halves, including a penalty, and Saito made sure the visitors kept their lead before the half time break with a left strike into the bottom corner.

Queensland were in full fighting spirit, with some excellent clearances, but the NSW Navy side were just too strong on the day.
Today’s derby between the two New South Wales sides will decide who make the Final on Tuesday.
