The Queanbeyan Blues had a very strong 2020 season, winning seven straight games before falling at the final hurdle.

The side improved from their third place in last year’s competition, making it to this grand final this year.

The Blues were the form team of the competition, recording some big wins as well as coming from behind to snatch victories.

Queanbeyan’s attack was dangerous all season, notching up 274 points. They had three different halves combinations in nine rounds, with Jacinta Williams, Samantha Wood, Alanna Brooks and Kasey Dragisic all spending time in the halves. All slotted straight in and got the job done, leading the team’s attack.

Samantha Wood was a big addition to the side, having returned after a two-year stint playing rugby union. Queanbeyan Blues junior Gemma Vause made her debut for the team, playing nine matches and scoring a try.

Alanna Brooks was the top try-scorer for the Blues, with nine tries across five games.

Season Highlight

Their big comeback wins against the Bushpies.

In round three, the Blues found themselves behind 20-6 in the second half before a Kasey Dragisic hat-trick brought the team home. Samantha Wood converted all three tries to seal the 24-20 win over the future premiers.

The Blues produced another comeback victory against the Bushpies in round six, trailing by ten points at halftime before a Dragisic double kept the Blues winning streak alive.
