Katrina Fanning Shield Round Four Preview

Round four of the Katrina Fanning Shield is this weekend, with the UC Stars v Goulburn City Bulldogs match featuring as the curtain raiser game at GIO Stadium this Saturday. 

Yass Magpies v Queanbeyan Blues, 12pm Saturday 22 May at Walker Park, Yass

The Yass Magpies will be looking to continue their winning streak when they face a tough Queanbeyan Blues outfit on Saturday. 

The Magpies are coming off a bye last weekend, so will be well rested and fresh heading into the game. Yass have scored 116 points in their opening two games, with fullback Lucy Prosser the side's top try-scorer with six tries. 

Halfback Hollie Massey has been leading the team well around the park, with  their strong forward pack laying a solid platform. 

The Magpies face a big test against the Queanbeyan Blues, who will want to bounce back from their last minute loss last weekend. 

The Blues trailed 10-0 against the Goulburn City Bulldogs in their last start, before Alanna Brooks and Payge-Louise Condon both crossed for tries to level the scores. 

Queanbeyan fought hard but were unable to hold out Goulburn, who scored the match winner with two minutes to go. 

Hooker Condon has been amongst the Blues best so far, sitting on six Best and Fairest points over three games. 

Harden Worhawks v Boomanulla Raiders, 12:45pm Saturday 22 May at McLean Oval

The Harden Worhawks play their first home game of the year this Saturday when they host the Boomanulla Raiders.  

Harden will look to build on their game last week, in which they showed great fighting spirit having only 11 players throughout the entire game. The Worhawks defence was particularly impressive, letting in just one try during the second half. 

Hunter Ings was amongst the best on field last week, elusive in attack and setting up many plays. 

Boomanulla are coming off a tough 36-4 loss last weekend, and will want to get in the winners circle against Harden. 

The Raiders had a solid first half against the Tuggeranong Bushrangers in round three, defending well and going into the break trailing 8-4. 

Five-eighth Jacintha Geia was awarded two Best and Fairest points for her performance in the game, scoring her team's only try. 

UC Stars v Goulburn City Bulldogs, 5:30pm Saturday 22 May at GIO Stadium

This match will feature as the curtain raiser to the Canberra Raiders v Melbourne Storm NRL match this weekend at GIO Stadium. 

The Goulburn City Bulldogs remain undefeated so far and will look to keep top spot on the ladder. 

The Bulldogs defeated the Queanbeyan Blues last weekend, with fullback Krystal Blackwell scoring the match winning try with two minutes remaining. 

Goulburn's forward pack were particularly impressive, with Jennaya Ottaway and Olivia Howe awarded three and two Best and Fairest points respectively. 

The UC Stars recorded their first win of the season in round three, defeating the Harden Worhawks 18-4. 

The Stars defence was solid throughout the game, holding the Harden side to just one try. Their defence will again need to be spot on against a tough Goulburn City Bulldogs team featuring many attacking weapons. 

UC prop Catherine Carling was awarded three Best and Fairest points during the last match.
