Canberra Raiders Cup: Round Six Wrap

The Canberra Raiders Cup is heating up after round six, as teams are hitting their stride, igniting anticipation with each matchup. 

Woden Valley Rams 16 defeat Belconnen United Sharks 10

The Woden Valley Rams had their top of the ladder position tested, securing a 16-10 victory over the Belconnen United Sharks over the weekend.

Rams tries came through Daine Spencer, Thomas Scrivener and Ron Leapai, with their performances going a long way to secure their round six victory.

Sharks winger Connor Massen planted the ball over the line on two occasions, which kept his side in the close contest. 

The table topping Rams enjoy the bye this weekend, following a few hard-fought battles in consecutive weeks. 

Meanwhile the Sharks focus their attention on their next matchup against the Yass Magpies. 

West Belconnen Warriors  24 defeat Yass Magpies 10

The West Belconnen Warriors secured a gritty 14-point victory on Saturday against the Yass Magpies.

Warriors fullback Ryan McQueen and Centre George Pohahau both crossed for doubles but it was Caleb Edwards who was awarded best on ground for his classy performance at five-eighth. 

The Magpies put up a good fight, showing impressive goal-line defence and crossing for two all important tries which saw the scores at 12-10 well into the second half, before West Belconnen skipped away. 

The Warriors have a chance to entrench themselves further into the top four when they face the Blues this weekend, meanwhile Yass look to redeem themselves against the Sharks. 

Queanbeyan Kangaroos 44 defeat Gungahlin Bulls 4

The Queanbeyan Kangaroos remain undefeated after a dominant win over the Gungahlin Bulls. 

Kangaroos backrower Jess Dent and fullback Kaine Pagura were standouts as they both secured two tries each. 

The Bulls scored their one and only try of the match on the stroke of halftime through winger Paul Faamoe, but this wasn't enough to swing the momentum as Queanbeyan came out firing after the break. 

The Kangaroos will be up and about for their next matchup, as we see a grand final rematch when they face the Tuggeranong Bushrangers on Saturday. 

Whilst Gungahlin will be liking their chances of securing more competition points when they come up against a Bulldogs outfit who are in search of their first win. 

Queanbeyan Blue 38 defeat Goulburn City Bulldogs 14

The Queanbeyan Blues showcased a demolishing performance on the weekend against the Goulburn City Bulldogs.

Six blues players made it to the line, including centre Josh Billing and prop John Papalii crossing for doubles. 

Despite giving up an early 18-point lead, the Bulldogs scored the next two through winger Buster Strickland and second rower Jai Purser which provided Goulburn some hope, before the Blues put the game beyond doubt. 

Ahead of round seven next weekend, the Blues test themselves against a strong Warriors side, while the Bulldogs look too secure their first win of the season against Gungahlin.
