Katrina Fanning Shield Round 10 Preview

The Specsavers Katrina Fanning Shield enters round ten this weekend, with teams looking to build some momentum heading into the second half of the competition. 

Goulburn City Bulldogs v Harden Worhawks, 11am Saturday 10 July at Workers Arena, Goulburn 

The Goulburn City Bulldogs will look to make it three wins in a row when they host the Harden Worhawks at Workers Arena this weekend. 

Goulburn have been in great form throughout the season, only dropping one game back in round six. 

Madyson Tooth shifted from lock into the second row last week against the UC Stars, where she scored a double. 

Fullback Krystal Blackwell is amongst the side's most dangerous players and will want to continue finding space off the back of the strong forward pack.

Harden have had three weeks off due to washouts and a bye round, so the side will be keen to get back into some footy and start building some momentum heading into the back end of the competition. 

Defence will be crucial for the Worhawks this weekend, with the Goulburn City Bulldogs a strong attacking side. 

The two sides are yet to meet, with their scheduled clash in round eight a washout. 

A win could see the Bulldogs jump into first place on the ladder, depending if Yass claim victory over Tuggeranong. If the Worhawks win they could be equal fifth at the end of the round. 

Yass Magpies v Tuggeranong Bushrangers, 12pm Saturday 10 July at Walker Park, Yass

It's a top four clash this weekend at Walker Park, with the Yass Magpies taking on the Tuggeranong Bushrangers. 

The Magpies and Bushrangers didn't play in the KFS competition last year, so players from both sides combined to form the Bushpies team. The side was very successful, winning the 2020 Katrina Fanning Shield. 

The players are back at their original clubs this year, but a number of players will be playing against each other for the first time since that grand final. 

The Magpies have been the form team of the competition, with the best attack and defence records. They recorded a 46-0 win over the Boomanulla Raiders last round, the third time the side has scored 40 or more points in a game this season.

Tuggeranong are sitting in fourth spot on the ladder with three wins. They narrowly lost 12-10 to the Goulburn City Bulldogs in their last game, so will look to build on that performance this weekend. 

Fullback Felicity Bell is the side's top try-scorer with five tries. 

Yass will remain in first place if they win this weekend, while the Bushrangers could finish in equal third if they win. 

Queanbeyan Blues v Boomanulla Raiders, 9:30am Saturday 10 July, Seiffert Oval 

The Queanbeyan Blues and Boomanulla Raiders face off in their round ten clash this weekend. 

Queanbeyan recorded an impressive 22-6 win over the high-flying Magpies in their last start, with a great first half performance setting up victory. They'll want to start fast again this weekend against Boomanulla. 

The Blues side is very cohesive, with many of the players having played with each other for a couple of years now. Their spine players complement each other well, while the forward pack lead from the front and create some strong momentum. 

Boomanulla's first win of the season remains elusive, but they have continued to put in hard work and remain competitive. 

They went down 46-0 to Yass last round, so no doubt defence will be a focus area heading into the Saturday. 

The Blues were victorious when the two sides met in round two, winning 62-6. 

A win to Queanbeyan will see them maintain third place on the ladder, possibly closing the gap to first and second. A victory to the Raiders could see them jump to equal with Harden.
