The NSW Police representative team, defeated a spirited Affiliated states Police representative team, at the Maroochydore Rugby League complex on Thursday the 10 July 2014.
The Rebels were pumped up by veteran coach 'Gus' Purcell and came out with a great attitude in defence and attack.  The Rebels scored force to lead 6 points to nil.
NSW half-back Jai Jones was playing way above his weight and went over to score shortly after.  NSW winger Simon Gairns finished off a slick back line movement to score in the corner and NSW had a buffer of eight points.
The Rebels provided brutal defence through Dave O'Riordon, Sheppy Stoneham and the veteran Ben Smith.  This leadership appeared to spur the Rebels on who competed fiercely.  The NSW pack however, would not back down and it is a credit to Mitch West, Brayden Sharrock, Dave Cox, Andrew Hiam, Andrew Atkins, Danny Lawrence, Leo Clarke and Mitch Wakeford who absorbed the brutality and matched it, after Jordan Hollis retired due to injury. Rob Mears again was silky smooth around the play the ball area.
