Katrina Fanning Shield 2022: Round 5 Wrap

The Katrina Fanning Shield continued over the weekend, with round five’s action headlined by important wins to both the UC Stars and Goulburn City Bulldogs.

Goulburn City Bulldogs 16 d Queanbeyan Blues 12

The Goulburn City Bulldogs have recorded a crucial victory against the Queanbeyan Blues at Seiffert Oval on Saturday, winning 16-12.

After a tough loss to the undefeated Yass Magpies side in the first round, Goulburn have proven to be one of the form teams in the competition this season.

Krystal Balckwell, Paige Penning and Elly Hazelton all crossed the line to set-up a big win over the Queanbeyan Blues, who were yet to concede a point heading into this contest.

After two comfortable victories to start the season, Saturday’s match proved to be the first real contest of the campaign for the Blues.

Tries to Teliya Hetaraka and Payge-Louise Condon were not enough for the home side, falling to their first loss off the season after a bye in round four. 

Queanbeyan will be looking to get back to their winning ways when they come up against Yass in a blockbuster at home this Saturday.

The Bulldogs will be looking to make it three wins a row when they face the Tuggeranong Bushrangers at Workers Arena.

UC Stars 14 d Harden Worhawks 8

The UC Stars have come away with a hard-fought victory over the Harden Worhawks, winning 14-8 at Raiders Belconnen on Saturday.

After being held to nil last weekend against the Tuggeranong Bushrangers, the Stars were able to bounce back at home, recording their second win of the season.

After a few tough clashes, the victory over Harden pushes UC into sixth place, sitting equal points with the third place Queanbeyan Blues.

Despite the loss, it was again an improved result for the Worhawks with centres Ua Ravu and Mollie Hogan both crossing over for their first tries of the season.

The side were unable to score points in their first two games of 2022, however tight matches against South Coast and UC will fill the team with confidence.

Harden will come up against the Boomanulla Raiders next weekend, with both teams looking for their first win of the season.

The Stars will instead be looking to continue their momentum, when they come up against second-placed Woden Valley Rams next Saturday at Phillip Oval.
