Junior Reps Preview: Round Five

The Canberra Raiders' three junior rep sides will all travel to Kirkham Oval, Camden this Saturday, as they all chase a round five victory.

Tarsha Gale Cup

The Raiders Tarsha Gale Cup side will be recharged and ready to make it two in a row this Saturday, as they take on the Wests Tigers following a bye round last week.

The Raiders will look to take plenty of confidence out of their 16-10 victory over the Cronulla Sharks a fortnight ago, marking their first win of the season.

Meanwhile, the Wests Tigers bagged their first win of the season defeating North Sydney 24-10, courtesy of a Tiana-Lee Thorne double.

Both sides will be eager to make it two in a row, especially given the tightness of the competition ladder.

Harold Matthews Cup

The Raiders will face a red-hot Magpies side in round five of the Harold Matthews Cup, as they aim to bag their first win of the season.

The Raiders last meeting resulted in a heartbreaking 19-18 defeat, falling to a 58th minute field goal to go down to the Sharks.

After the bye, the Green Machine will be refreshed and ready to go after a competitive first four weeks in the competition.

The Magpies will be aiming to stand outright first on the ladder, as they look down the barrel of four straight wins to start the season.

SG Ball Cup

After a slow start, the Raiders will look to make it three on the trot in the SG Ball Cup, as they face one of the form sides in the competition in the Magpies.

The Raiders recorded a strong win at Seiffert Oval, when they defeated the Bulldogs 30-20 last Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Magpies will take plenty of momentum into Saturday's contest after a stunning 48-6 victory over North Sydney.

Given the competition ladder, a win for either side could be crucial in the context of the season.
