Katrina Fanning Shield 2022: Round 7 Preview

Round seven of the Katrina Fanning Shield kicks off this weekend with some great matchups, as all teams will be well rested after the long weekend.

Tuggeranong Bushrangers vs South Coast United, Greenway Oval, 10:40am Saturday 18th June.

The earliest game of the day will see the Bushrangers host South Coast United, who haven't played a game since the 22nd of May.

It's been a disappointing season so far for the Bushrangers, winning just one of their opening four matches.

Tuggeranong showcased some great form in their 32-0 win over the Stars in round four, before a disappointing loss to the Bulldogs in round six. 

Meanwhile, South Coast United have not taken the field since their round four 22-10 win over the Worhawks. Despite their near-month off, United currently sit fifth with two wins and two losses so far this season. 

The Bushrangers will be hoping to claim their second win of the season, but United will be eager to return to the field with a result.

Yass Magpies vs UC Stars, Walker Park, 12pm Saturday 18th June.

The top of the table Magpies will host the UC Stars, who will be desperate to make a statement after an up and down start to the season.

The Magpies will be hoping to continue their perfect start to the year, as they remain the only undefeated team left in the competition.

If that wasn't enough, the Magpies also have the best attack and the equal best defence this season despite being tested in their 8-6 comeback win over the Blues last round.

The Stars will see this as a great chance to test themselves against the best team in the competition. UC have started the season with two wins and three losses, including a 14-8 win over the Worhawks in their most recent match.

The Stars will have enjoyed having last weekend off after having to forfeit their round six match, with a win for could potentially push them into the top four. Meanwhile, it will be business as usual for the Magpies who will be looking for another dominant victory.

Harden Worhawks vs Goulburn City Bulldogs, McLean Oval, 12:20pm Saturday 18th June.

The Bulldogs will travel to Harden to take on the Worhawks, who will be flying high after securing their first win of the season.

The Worhawks opened their 2022 account, picking up a 32-6 win over the Raiders in round six.

It was a great team display for the Worhawks who showed signs of brilliance in earlier games this season. Five-eighth Hunter Ings was a standout for the Harden side, crossing over for two tries.

The Bulldogs will also be coming into this match with plenty of confidence, off the back of three straight wins which has them cemented in the top four.

It will be a great matchup with both teams coming into this game with plenty of confidence. The Worhawks will be hoping to continue their winning ways and go on a run heading into the finals, while the Bulldogs will be looking for a fourth straight win.

Queanbeyan Blues vs Boomanulla Raiders, Kaleen Enclosed Oval, 1:00pm Saturday 18th June.

The Blues will host the Raiders in the final game of the day, as both teams will be hoping to get back in the winners circle. 

Despite suffering back to back losses in round six, the Blues will be very confident after being the only team to push the Magpies to the death. Queanbeyan started the game against the undefeated side, going 6-0 up before suffering a heartbreaking loss on the final play of the game.

Meanwhile, it's been a very disappointing season so far for the Raiders who currently sit in last position. The Raiders are still without a win this season but have shown their brilliance in patches this season.

The Raiders are desperate for a win to get their 2022 account started, but it will be a big test against a Blues team who nearly caused the upset of the season.
