The Woden Valley Rams are seeking redemption in the Canberra Raiders Cup First Grade after disappointingly missing out on the finals series last year. 

The Katrina Fanning Shield side are confident in their chances with a good crop of young talent coming through, and it's business as usual for the League Tag side, who are going for three straight premierships this year. 

A few losses in the back-end of the season saw the Rams just miss out on the first grade finals series. 

Woden player Sean Maloney reflected on last year and confidently expressed his belief that they are poised for improvement in 2024. 

“Last year we started the season quite strong then fell away at the back. This year we’ve got a new coach, new players so it’s going to be a totally different year for us and I think we’ll improve a lot," said Maloney. 

Rams KFS player Ella Cosgrove is confident in her side after a strong preseason with the young talent they have coming through. 

“Our preseason has looked a lot better this year than it ever has before," Cosgrove said. 

“I think we have a really strong chance this year, we have a lot of our people coming up from the Raiders Tasha Gale squad, so hopefully we’ll be pretty good”.

Woden's League Tag squad are searching for their third straight premiership after another dominant year in the competition. 

“Our goals this year is similar to every single year, get to that finals series and try hold that cup at the end of the comp," said Woden League Tagger Keesha Kapea. 

“I am leaning towards being an experienced player rather than a younger player now, so it’s about developing our young ones in our team and helping pave the way for success throughout the whole team”.

The Woden Valley Rams will host the West Belconnen Warriors at Phillip Oval in round one of the Canberra Raiders Cup and Katrina Fanning Shield.
