Yesterday after the New South Wales Blues beat the Queensland Maroons 16-10 at the inaugural women‘s State of Origin match in North Sydney, there was a touching moment between Queensland captain Karina Brown and Blues player Vanessa Foliaki.
Just minutes after the couple of four years finished playing against each other, the pair shared perhaps the best kiss in sporting history.
In an interview with NRL.com last week, the couple opened up about the struggles of playing against each other.
“When we first met it was okay because it was a draw that year, so there was no emotion, but then we got serious and the last three years she would block my number, that’s how serious it would get,” said Karina.
“I basically get cheated on every year,” joked Karina.
Foliaki shared that when it comes to State of Origin, she can’t think of Karina.
“Everyone that I’ve played with for NSW knows when I’m in camp, it’s just Origin – I’m not with Karina,” Foliaki said.
