After a bye in round one, Harden went down to Yass Magpies 64-0 in round two. Harden will be looking to find a spark in attack against the Stars.

Tuggeranong Bushrangers v Boomanulla Raiders, 11am Saturday 15 May at Raiders Belconnen
Tuggeranong and Boomanulla open the Katrina Fanning Shield Magic Round in an exciting clash, with both teams will be looking for their first win of the season.
Tuggeranong took it to competition heavyweights Queanbeyan in round one but eventually went down 24-12. The Bushrangers will take a lot out of that game and will look to go one better against Boomanulla.
A win in this game will give Tuggeranong four points on the ladder, as they have their bye next week.
The Boomanulla Raiders will also be looking to turn their season around. After consecutive losses, the Raiders will be looking to improve on their defence against the Bushrangers.
The Raiders only played with 13 players against a full-strength Blues side and showed tremendous courage and resolve. Hopefully, this week they’ll get a boost in numbers to give themselves a better chance to win.
Queanbeyan Blues v Goulburn City Bulldogs, 12:30pm Saturday 15 May at Raiders Belconnen
In a top of the table clash, both the Queanbeyan Blues and the Goulburn City Bulldogs will look to make a statement with a big win on Saturday.
Goulburn will be raring to go after a forfeit last week meant they didn’t get on the field. A 52-0 win over Boomanulla in round one showed off the Bulldogs ability to play great attacking footy.
Goulburn’s fullback Krystal Blackwell will be one to watch after she scored a fantastic hat-trick in round one.
Queanbeyan are coming into round three on the back of two straight wins. The Blues put on an attacking clinic in their 62-6 victory over Boomanulla in round two.
Payge-Louise Condon has been a standout for the Blues, providing first-class service from dummy-half to get her team consistently on the front foot. Her combination with halfback Taylor Galjaardt has got the Blue’s attack looking fast and fierce.
