Katrina Fanning Shield Round Five Preview

Round five of the Katrina Fanning Shield is this weekend, with three exciting matches. 

Tuggeranong Bushrangers v UC Stars, 12pm Saturday 29 May at Greenway Oval

Both sides will be looking for their second win of the season when they face off at Greenway Oval on Saturday.

Tuggeranong are coming off a bye in the previous round, so will be refreshed and ready to go. 

Felicity Bell has been strong at fullback for the team, while centre Maata Alai-Lokeni scored a double in their last game against Boomanulla. 

The UC Stars will want to put in an improved performance this weekend, after their 50-0 loss last week to the Goulburn City Bulldogs. 

With both teams sitting on four points on the ladder, the game shapes as an important one for both teams. 

Harden Worhawks v Queanbeyan Blues, 12:45pm Saturday 29 May at McLean Oval

Having recorded their first win of the season last weekend, the Harden Worhawks host the Queanbeyan Blues on Saturday.  

Harden defeated the Boomanulla Raiders 28-10 in round four, with the mother-daughter pairing of Mellissa and Hunter Ings starring in the match. 

Five-eighth Jaxan Blackhall scored a hat-trick in the victory. 

The Blues are coming off a tough loss against the high-flying Yass Magpies, and will want to bounce back this week. 

Queanbeyan were unable to score any points against the Magpies, but they have strong attacking weapons in their side. 

Payge-Louise Condon leads the Best and Fairest leaderboard, with six points. 

Boomanulla Raiders v Yass Magpies, 12:45pm Saturday 29 May at Boomanulla Oval

The Yass Magpies remain undefeated and travel to Boomanulla Oval this weekend to take on the Boomanulla Raiders. 

The Magpies put a statement out to the rest of the competition with a dominant 26-0 win over the Queanbeyan Blues in round four.

Lock Taylor Frost picked up three Best and Fairest points for her performance last week, with Emily Banks getting two. 

Yass boast the best defence in the competition, having not leaked any points in the first four rounds. 

Boomanulla face a tough test this week, and are still seeking that first win. 

Five-eighth Jacintha Geia has been the side's best, scoring both tries in the 28-10 loss to Harden last weekend.
