West Belconnen Warriors 30 (Tries: R Fulivai, A Greenwood, C Thorley, T Freeman-Quay 2; Goals R Roberts 5) d Queanbeyan Kangaroos 10 (Tries: J Ayers, J Essex; Goals: M Connolly)
The West Belconnen Warriors have shocked the Queanbeyan Kangaroos 30-10 at Seears Workwear Oval in their final game of the season.
Despite the convincing victory, other results will prevent the defending premiers from making finals after narrowly missing out on for and against.
With six players absent through various reasons, the Kangaroos started the brighter of the two sides as Josh Ayers crashed over the line off the back of a run from Tolokana Aroha-Tuinauvai.
After entering the break leading 6-4 the Warriors furthered their lead early in the second half when Aidan Greenwood collected a short ball and muscled his way over the line.
Frustrated, the Kangaroos gave away repeated penalties and West Belconnen made them pay when Harry Brown set up Chris Thorley while Tori Freeman-Quay bagged two tries.
Good footwork from Joshua Essex gave the Kangaroos a late consolation try but it wasn’t enough to stop the Warriors from securing a 30-10 win.

Woden Valley Rams 42 (J. Carroll, L. Hicks, S. Maloney, K. Posantzis, C. Mcghie, T. Hicks, M. Gilmour; Goals J. Carroll 6, J. Morgan 1) d Gungahlin Bulls 14 (Tries: R. O'Sullivan, D. Williams, D. Low; Goals S. Ketia Opo)
The Woden Valley Rams have finished the season on a high after they cruised past the Gungahlin Bulls running in seven tries in a clinical display.
Despite both teams being out of finals contention, bragging rights and a strong finish to the season was on the line.
Woden put together a strong team performance with seven players scoring their seven tries aided by Jayden Carroll who was pin-point with the boot slotting all six of his attempts with prop Jeffrey Morgan even joining in to put one over.
Gungahlin are left to lick the wounds of a turbulent season that saw an unlucky run of injuries, which was too much to overcome and placed them out of finals contention.
Tuggeranong Bushrangers 42 (S. Fetuani 2, J. Mitchell, Q. Cannon, J. Pollard, T. Vatubuli, I. Afemui, B. Hensen; Goals J. Mitchell 5) d Queanbeyan Blues 14 (T. Stevens, M. Cullen, J. Stuckey; Goals J. Baker)
The Tuggeranong Bushrangers have handed the Queanbeyan Blues their second defeat in as many weeks, after thumping the table toppers by 28 points.
After having the minor premiership secure, the Blues opted to rest players ahead of the clash which Tuggeranong needed to win to make finals.
The decision proved to be fatal as the full strength Tuggeranong side ran in eight tries in a demolition job led by Sateki Fetuani who bagged a double on the day.
Joshua Mitchell was strong with the boot adding the extras on five occasions and putting the score line beyond doubt.
The win sneaks Tuggeranong into fourth spot on the ladder and secures them a semi final against the Yass Magpies on Sunday while the Blues play the Queanbeyan Kangaroos in their semi final.
Yass Magpies 48 (J. Vatikani 2, S. Davis, B. Warner, S. Naughton, S. Naughton, J. Hall, S. Aiolupo; Goals S. Davis 8) d Goulburn Workers Bulldogs 22 (C. Hart, Z. Hart, M. Worboys, D. Hately; Goals B. Hewitt 2, C. Hart 1)
The Yass Magpies have booked a spot in the finals after they demolished the Goulburn Workers Bulldogs 48-22 in convincing fashion.
With Goulburn out of finals contention and Yass needing a win to ensure they played finals footy, the Magpies put together one of their best performances of the season.
The Magpies recorded eight tries at the Bulldogs home ground with Shaun Davis unstoppable with the boot converting all eight of the Magpies tries.
Junior Vatikani ended the match with two tries against his former club while the Magpies shared around the points.
The Magpies will now face the Tuggeranong Bushrangers in the semi final on Sunday, needing a win if they are to progress through to next round and have a shot at making the 2017 Austbrokers Canberra Raiders Cup Grand Final.
