Katrina Fanning Shield: Preliminary Final Preview

The Bulldogs and Rams will go head to head this Sunday in a blockbuster preliminary final where the winner will face-off against the undefeated Yass Magpies in the 2022 Katrina Fanning Shield Grand Final.

Goulburn City Bulldogs v Woden Valley Rams, Gungahlin Enclosed Oval, Sunday 11th September 12:00pm.

After suffering a narrow loss to the Magpies in last weekend's major semi final, the Bulldogs will now take on the Rams with the final spot in this season's decider on the line.

It has been a dominant season from the Magpies, but they are still one game away from being crowned premiers with two sides hungry to knock them off in the big dance.

The Bulldogs came close to doing that exact thing last Sunday, after leading the match early but failing to overcome a ten point deficit despite a late try by five-eighth Lauren Kelly.

After tasting defeat in the first week of finals, the Rams bounced back to claim a 26-14 win over the Blues.

The Rams have had the edge over the Blues this season after coming back from a 10-nil deficit to secure a spot in this weekend's preliminary final.

Now their attention turns to the side who beat them just two weeks ago as the Rams and Bulldogs will go head to head once again, but this time for the ultimate prize.

The Bulldogs have won all of their games against the Rams this season and will be wanting to replicate that again.

However, the Rams have shown during those games that they are more than capable of beating the Bulldogs, including the first week of finals where they led 16-4 after 20 minutes.

This match is expected to be another physical match-up between two of the premier sides, where the undefeated Yass Magpies will await the winner next Sunday in the grand final.
