It’s full time in the other Men’s Elimination Final and the South Coast Illawarra Dragons defeated the Riverina Bulls, 24-16. That means the Colts meet the Dragons in Wollongong in the Grand Final.

Monaro Colts player/coach Terry Campese all set for Country Championships Grand Final



Monaro coach Terry Campese, who has over 150 first class games to his name, wasn’t expecting to lace up the boots for the Colts but when the side was low on troops in Round Two he stepped up the plate. This Saturday he leads his team into the 2021 Country Championships Grand Final.

“Instead of bringing a player into the squad late it was discussed within the staff that it was best that I run around,” Campese said. “The plan for me was not to play the next game but a few of the players rang me up and asked if I would consider it because they enjoyed playing beside me.”

Monaro Colts hold out Illawarra South Coast Dragons to claim Country Championship

Led by Terry Campese, the Monaro Colts have defeated Illawarra South Coast Dragons in a nail-biting 18-16 win in the Men’s Country Championships Grand Final at H.E Laybutt Field in Sydney.

Campese broke a 16-16 deadlock with a penalty goal from in front, giving the Colts a two-point lead in the 63rd minute. In a last-ditch effort, the Dragons attempted to shift the ball and make their way 80m downfield until a handling error from the Dragons all but sealed a hard fought 18-16 victory for Monaro Colts.

'Brings a tear to my eye': Terry Campese dedicates Monaro Colts Country Championship win to his nan



Joan Campese died on Friday. She wasn't there to see her grandson steer the Monaro Colts to the NSW country championships title in an 18-16 win over the Illawarra South Coast Dragons in Blacktown a day later.

"To hear the news on the way up [on Friday] was devastating. She's in a better place, it's a sad old disease, Alzheimer's. I feel really bad for my old girl, they've been a big part of my footy career, they've watched every game they could get to. It's a special moment to lift that trophy for them.

2021 Canberra Raiders Cup: Round 1 Preview

Image

The Canberra Raiders Cup kicks off the 2021 season this weekend - after the competition was not played in 2020 due to the pandemic. Three teams participated in a shortened CRRL Cup - the Gungahlin Bulls, Queanbeyan Blues and Woden Valley Rams - along with a Canberra Raiders Under 20s team. An impressive Raiders Under 20s took the title in a competition that featured mostly young talent. However, all nine Canberra Raiders Cup teams will be back in a full competition this year.

In 2021 all matches will be live streamed via the Bar TV subscription service, with one match also streamed for free on the CRRL Facebook page each week. The feature match this week sees the Goulburn City Bulldogs clash with the West Belconnen Warriors on Sunday afternoon, with the other three games played on Saturday.



Tuggeranong Bushrangers V Queanbeyan Kangaroos, Saturday 3pm, Greenway

The Tuggeranong Bushrangers host the Queanbeyan Kangaroos at Greenway on Saturday afternoon. Jarrad Teka returns to guide the Bushrangers this season - a squad that will be mostly familiar to the Bushies faithful from the 2019 season. They have recruited Cooper Purcell, a hooker who has come through the ranks of the Dragons' lower grades, while Liam Oakley will return to the club after time with the Bulldogs. Former Raider Michael Brophy lines up at fullback in Round 1, while another experienced ex-Raider, Drury Low starts at centre. Niu Mariota will feature at lock.

The Queanbeyan Kangaroos have a new coach and captain in season 2021. Aaron Gorrell spent almost a decade as a captain and coach of the Roos, winning three premierships along the way. But Gorrell has headed to the Cooma Stallions in 2021 - with Adam Taylor taking over the coaching reins at Freebody Oval. Taylor was the captain-coach of the Kangaroos for three seasons, before he moved to arch rivals, the Queanbeyan Blues in 2010.

"There's definitely some unfinished business," Taylor told The Canberra Times.

"When I came to the Roos it was an absolute mess, they hadn't won a game in two years. I was only 27 at the time and I've since done a lot of growing up. I'm chuffed to be back to where it started. Of the clubs I've been involved in, the Roos, Blues and Goulburn, they're the pick of them for me. The culture at the Roos when I left was the best and I want to continue to build that culture."

Hooker Lachie Ingram has been appointed captain, after turning out for the Blues last year in the CRRL Cup. The Roos have also recruited experienced prop Aidan Woods and Michael Cullen from their east Queanbeyan rivals.

Queanbeyan Blues V Belconnen United Sharks, Saturday 3pm, Seiffert Oval

Former Canberra Raiders captain, Terry Campese, 36, continues as coach of the Queanbeyan Blues in 2021. His team hosts the Belconnen United Sharks at Seiffert on Saturday. Campese has just coached the Monaro Colts to the Country Championships title - and played in the final two matches. He wasn't supposed to be playing, but Campo stepped into the breach after some of the squad became unavailable. He’s still got it, even though the legs are not what they were. Hanging up the boots is clearly hard to do for him. He admits he can "never help himself". He's lining up in Round 1 at five eighth, while Josh Mitchell is starting at hooker, after switching from the Bushrangers. Isiaha Latu, who has impressed his coach in the off season, starts at lock.



Meanwhile, the Belconnen United Sharks have adopted the old Raiders HQ at Bruce as their home ground in 2021 - with the facility transforming into a hub for the NSWRL in the region. Former Raiders prop Scott Logan is back as coach of the Sharks, while another former Raiders forward, Shaun Fensom takes the role of experienced on field leader. The Sharks have struggled to be competitive in recent years, but Logan and Fensom will be aiming to turn that around in 2021. Fensom will start in his favourite spot in Round 1 - at lock.

Gungahlin Bulls V Woden Valley Rams, Saturday 3pm, Gungahlin

The Gungahlin Bulls made the Grand Final of the CRRL Cup last year, and most of the young players who featured in the 2019 campaign will be back under the tutealage of head coach Neil Bijorac. Half Tre Williams, hooker Zac Patch and fullback Tristan Eldridge all featured in the Monaro Colts Country Championship team, and will be key players for the Bulls. Jordan Williams joins Tre in the halves in Round 1, while Jack Williams will start in the second row.



The Rams travel to Gungahlin Enclosed for their Round 1 clash with the Bulls. Former Raiders winger Ken Nagas again takes the head coach role at the Woden Valley Rams in 2021, with captain Steve Ferry leading the team on field. The Rams will feature prop Brad Prior and half Brayden Robertson - also Monaro representatives earlier this year. Ferry and Prior are the starting props this week, with Robertson lines up at halfback.

Goulburn Bulldogs V West Belconnen Warriors, Sunday 3pm, Goulburn

The Goulburn Bulldogs have restructured and in 2021 and will go by the moniker of the Goulburn City Bulldogs - with a new logo and colours. Forward Tyson Greenwood and utility Jesse Martin will be the new captain-coaches. Tyson Greenwood is a very familiar figure at the Bulldogs. Jesse Martin planned to join his twin brother Matt at the Bulldogs in 2020, before the pandemic led to the cancellation of the Canberra Raiders Cup last year. The Raiders junior now lines up in the second row - alongside Greenwood - this Sunday against the West Belconnen Warriors at Goulburn Arena.

Former Raiders back Matt Gafa has the coaching reins at the Warriors, with experienced middle forward Josh Ayers moving from the Queanbeyan Roos to lead the team up front at prop. Nic Whatman will steer the team from dummy half in Round 1.

The Greenhouse will again be going around the grounds to cover the Canberra Raiders Cup matches whenever we can this season. Watch for our coverage on @TheGHRaiders on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, while we also provide live scores on Twitter via @CanberraCup.

Very good to see Niu Mariota lining up for the Bushrangers. Had heard he'd signed for the Bulldogs. Hopefully, that means he's taken the option of fighting his way back into the Raiders juniors. Very good to see.

New-look Goulburn City Bulldogs primed for fast start against West Belconnen Warriors in Canberra Raiders Cup opener

The new-look Goulburn City Bulldogs captain-coach partnership of Tyson Greenwood and Jesse Martin will be on show this Sunday as they host West Belconnen.

"We are a young side, it's good, we've got a lot of local guys and we have a really good junior base," Martin said. "We missed out on our last trial game [but] everyone's ready for a physical game."

Fighting fit Shaun Fensom ready to fire for Belconnen United Sharks

Former Raiders ironman Shaun Fensom will return to the rugby league circle on Saturday - this time to "have a bit of fun" and spend some quality time with his family. The retired NRL star lines up for the Belconnen United Sharks.

"I'm looking to have a bit of fun and pass on a bit of knowledge to some of the younger players who want to learn," Fensom said.

Indeed, Levi Koloutolu turning out for the Sharks... he's a very good talent. And Enseli Kamuta also turning out for the Bushies. It's impressive to see that all three are prepared to do some hard yards.

Sione Tapuosi quickly switched to the Eels.

Tuggeranong Bushrangers too good in season opener as Queanbeyan Kangaroos lose more to injury



An impressive Tuggeranong delivered the injury-ravaged Queanbeyan Kangaroos a sobering defeat at Greenway Oval on Saturday as both sides took the field for the first time since 2019.

"It was not the best having the year off last year and it didn't help with our preseason but to go out there and play like the boys did today was very pleasing. We debuted six players today," Bushrangers coach Jarrad Teka said.

2021 Canberra Raiders Cup: Round 2 Preview

Image

Round 2 of the Canberra Raiders Cup is headlined by the clash between the Rams and Bushrangers at Phillip on Saturday, while the game between the Sharks and Bulls at Bruce will be the live stream feature match of the weekend.

Woden Valley Rams V Tuggeranong Bushrangers, Phillip Oval

The Tuggeranong Bushrangers produced a good 36-12 win over the Queanbeyan Kangaroos last Saturday at Greenway. New hooker Cooper Purcell and former Raiders junior Niu Mariota produced strong games for the home side - with Mariota making some barnstorming runs to score a try and then to set up Julian Hayward-Whiley at the back end of the game. Hopefully Mariota finds his way back into the Raiders system quickly.





Bushrangers coach Jarrad Teka was happy with his young team's performance.

"It was not the best having the year off last year and it didn't help with our preseason but to go out there and play like the boys did today was very pleasing," Teka told The Canberra Times.

"You can deal with a lot of things, but isolation when the world's been turned upside down, it took a little while to get the boys back on track. We debuted six players today. It was a fairly young team so pretty happy."



The Bushrangers now head to Phillip for the Round 2 southern derby - a clash with the Woden Valley Rams on Saturday. The Rams tasted defeat in Round 1 - losing to the Gungahlin Bulls, 32-22, in a see-sawing game. Rams five eighth Sean Maloney scored a double, while lock Siaiku Tapa was one of the best for Woden. He also got a four pointer. This game shapes as the match of the round.

Queanbeyan Blues V Yass Magpies, Seiffert Oval

The Queanbeyan Blues host the Yass Magpies at Seiffert Oval on Saturday. It'll be the first match of the season for the Magpies, after they had a bye in Round 1. The Blues produced a big 52-12 win over the Belconnen United Sharks last weekend - so it won't be an easy start to the season for Yass. Fullback Matt Parsons scored a hat trick, while hooker Josh Mitchell settled right in at Queanbeyan - having joined the Blues from the Bushrangers. The Blues scored a total of 10 tries, seven in the second half. Player-coach Terry Campese is out of the Blues line up for the next two weeks, after suffering a knee injury in Round 1. Christino Manuolevao will fill Campese's No. 6 jersey this week.



Belconnen United Sharks V Gungahlin Bulls, Bruce Oval

The Belconnen United Sharks will play their first game at their new home ground this Saturday, when they host the Gungahlin Bulls at Bruce Oval. The Sharks have adopted the old Raiders HQ at Bruce as their base this year, having been transformed into a regional high performance hub for the NSWRL. The Bulls were too strong for the Rams in Round 1 - with second rower Jack Williams the man of the match. He got a double, plus a try assist in setting up half Jordan Williams for the match winner. Fullback Tristan Eldridge also had a strong game, scoring a try. The Bulls might be a bit too strong for the Sharks in this one.



Goulburn Bulldogs V Queanbeyan Kangaroos, Goulburn Arena

The Goulburn Bulldogs notched up their first win under a new moniker, logo and colours - defeating the West Belconnen Warriors at Goulburn Arena last Sunday.

The Bulldogs went to the break with a big 22-4 lead - after scoring four tries. The Dogs had success out wide, with wingers Steven Cummins and Dom Stephens posting tries in the first half, while centre Dillon Rota made a barnstorming run to get a four pointer right on half time.

The Warriors fought back in the second forty. Five eighth John Veloudas started it off with a try in the 46th minute. Near the 60 minute mark, Warriors centre Kane Rushton then scored a double in the space of a couple of minutes - and all of a sudden it was a very tight affair. The Warriors trailed by just two, 22-20 - and could have drawn level but for a Bailey Graham conversion attempt hitting an upright. The Bulldogs weren't helped by captain coach Tyson Greenwood being sin binned, after the first of the Rushton tries. But a try to Bulldogs fullback Max Flack steadied the ship, and sealed a 28-20 victory. The Bulldogs other captain-coach Jesse Martin had a strong game in the second row, while Raiders junior forward Sila Titiuti was also impressive.



The Bulldogs are again the hosts this week, with the Queanbeyan Kangaroos making the trek north on Sunday in Round 2. The Kangaroos had some injury problems last weekend, but they still played well against the Bushies. It should be a good contest.

The Greenhouse will again be going around the grounds to cover the Canberra Raiders Cup matches whenever we can this season. Watch for our coverage on @TheGHRaiders on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, while we also provide live scores on Twitter via @CanberraCup.
