2021 Canberra Raiders Cup: Round 12 Preview

Image

The Gungahlin Bulls still sit on top of the Canberra Raiders Cup ladder as we head into Round 12 of the competiton. They're two competition points ahead of their nearest rivals, the Queanbeyan Blues - having lost just one game all season. The Queanbeyan Kangaroos have moved into third place on the ladder, while the Goulburn Bulldogs and West Belconnen Warriors are in a fight for the remaining top four spot. The Bulldogs sit in fourth on points difference.

This weekend's action is headlined by two top four clashes - the Queanbeyan derby at Freebody Oval and the contest between the Bulls and Bulldogs at Gungahlin. It doesn't get much better.

Tuggeranong Bushrangers V Belconnen United Sharks

The Bushrangers are now on a three game losing streak, having lost to the Bulls, 36-26, last weekend. The Bushies were right in the contest with the Bulls - when they fought back to level the scores at 26 apiece at the 67th minute. But the Bulls finished more strongly, with forward Josh Allen crossing for a try with just over five minutes remaining. Then Bulls fullback Tristan Eldridge produced a 85 metre run to the try line for the match sealer.



The Sharks have won four of their past six games, with their only recent losses coming against the Warriors (24-18) and Blues (30-24). Five eighth Matthew Woolnough orchestrated a big 44-22 win last Saturday against the Magpies at Walker Park. The Sharks piled on five tries in the first half, to take a 28-0 lead - and the match was effectively already in their keeping. Woolnough ended the match with a hat trick.





The Bushies will have the home ground advantage on Saturday, and they're always tough to beat at Greenway. They also got the win over the Sharks back in Round 5 earlier this year. But the Sharks are in better recent form, and they've got every chance of taking out this one.

Season record: Bushrangers 3 and 7 (8th, -70)
Sharks 4 and 6 (6th, -24)
Form: Bushrangers LWLLL
Sharks WWLLW
Attacking record: Bushrangers 24, Sharks 25 points scored per match
Defensive record: Bushrangers 31, Sharks 27 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 5 Bushrangers 30 defeated Sharks 24 at Bruce Oval

Queanbeyan Kangaroos V Queanbeyan Blues

Second versus third. The Kangaroos host the Blues in the Queanbeyan derby on Saturday - and they'll be confident. They're on a three game winning streak, having beaten the ladder leading Bulls by a big score (60-14), as well as the Magpies (46-16) and the Bushrangers (20-14). Their two recent losses - to the Blues and Warriors - involved margins of just two points.



After back to back losses, the Blues have now well and truly steadied the ship. Blues coach Terry Campese returned to the field last weekend in a top four clash with the Warriors - and the Queanbeyan outfit produced a top quality performance. Queanbeyan fullback Matt Parsons was electric, scoring four tries in the 42-10 victory. Parsons is the top try scorer in the competition, but Blues prop Richard Holani isn't far behind. He has 11 for the season after scoring a double last Saturday. Terry Campese is now aged 36, and his knees are shot, but he's still got it. His passing game, kicking and organisational abilities are great to watch.



The Blues have the best attacking and defensive record in the competition. But the Kangaroos aren't far away. They rank third for average points scored - and they have the second best defence in the league. The Queanbeyan derby is always a great contest - and the Roos nearly got the Blues earlier in the year, after making a late charge. The Roos are coming off a bye and have the home ground advantage on Saturday - but I'll go with the Blues in this one, after their tip top form against the Warriors.



Season record: Kangaroos 5 and 4, 1 draw (3rd, +60)
Blues 8 and 2 (2nd, +174)
Form: Kangaroos LLWWW
Blues LLWWW
Attacking record: Kangaroos 30, Blues 36 points scored per match
Defensive record: Kangaroos 23, Blues 18 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 5 Blues 24 defeated Kangaroos 22 at Seiffert Oval

Gungahlin Bulls V Goulburn Bulldogs

The Bulls have lost just one game this season - big time to the Kangaroos in Round 8. Since then, they've posted wins over the two teams at the foot of the ladder - the Woden Valley Rams and the Bushrangers. They were challenged by the Bushies, but somehow they just keep on doing enough to win. The Bulls can certainly score points - and are just behind the Blues in that department. If there's an area that Bulls coach Neil Bijorac will be wanting to work on, it is the defence. They rank sixth in the competition for the fewest points conceded.

The Bulldogs will be disappointed with their past two games. They lost to the Warriors (18-10) and then last weekend, drew with the last placed Rams (28-28) at Goulburn Arena. The Bulldogs led 22-6 at half time, but a try to Rams winger Connor Bush - his second of the afternoon - brought the visitors within six points with around 15 minutes remaining. Then with just seconds left on the clock, Rams centre Aiden Kawiri crossed in the corner - and half Jackson McDonald converted from the sideline to grab the draw.



An upset in this match isn't out of the question. In the Round 5 clash between the two clubs earlier this year, the Bulls trailed by two points with two minutes left on the clock. But a kick from half Tre Holten-Williams to the corner, produced the match winner for Bulls winger Dean Aylott. However, all the numbers and the form lines point to a win for the Bulls at home this weekend.

Season record: Bulls 9 and 1 (1st, +62)
Bulldogs 5 and 4, 1 draw (4th, +28)
Form: Bulls WWLWW
Bulldogs WWWLD
Attacking record: Bulls 35, Bulldogs 28 points scored per match
Defensive record: Bulls 29, Bulldogs 25 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 5 Bulls 38 defeated Bulldogs 34 at Goulburn Arena

West Belconnen Warriors V Yass Magpies

The Yass Magpies are now on a four game losing streak after their loss to the Sharks last Saturday. The Warriors are coming off a disappointing result against the Blues at Seiffert - and they'll be keen to make sure that they turn that around quickly. They have a chance to jump back over the Bulldogs into the top four this weekend - and I don't think they'll easily be giving that up. Warriors to win at home at Kippax in this contest.

Season record: Warriors 5 and 4, 1 draw (5th, -6)
Magpies 2 and 6, 1 draw (7th, -82)
Form: Warriors WDWWL
Magpies WLLLL
Attacking record: Warriors 24, Magpies 26 points scored per match
Defensive record: Warriors 24, Magpies 35 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 5 Magpies 30 drew Warriors 30 at Walker Park

Fringe Canberra Raiders could play in local Canberra Raiders Cup competition

The Canberra Raiders players outside of the NRL club's Queensland bubble could be free to play in the Canberra Raiders Cup. With the NSW Cup likely to be on ice as long as Sydney remains in lockdown, the Raiders' reserves need a place to play. And for the half dozen who were left behind in Canberra, like Darby Medlyn and Ata Mariota, they might be allowed to play in the local competition to keep their match fitness up.

Indigenous jersey the Queanbeyan Kangaroos' final piece to their club culture rebuild

Queanbeyan Kangaroos club president Ian Baker made it his mission to rebuild the club's culture throughout the 2021 season, and this weekend's Indigenous round will be the final piece to complete the puzzle.

"This year the whole club has gathered together to get a new culture for ourselves, we're now a more family orientated club which everyone is loving," Roos player Reeion Murray said.

MATCH REPORT: Blues dominate Kangaroos in Queanbeyan derby



The Queanbeyan Blues put on a rugby league clinic to come out victorious over the Queanbeyan Kangaroos with an impressive 44-12 scoreline at Freebody Oval on Saturday.

The king of Queanbeyan, Terry Campese, was at his very best setting up tries and line breaks at will. He was aided by standout performances from forwards Isaiah Latu, Joshua Hitchins and centre Cyprian Ale. Their explosive running consistently put the Roos defence on the back foot.

Canberra Raiders Cup: Blues fullback Mathew Parsons stars in Queanbeyan derby win

Queanbeyan Blues fullback Mathew Parsons continued his brilliant season with a double in Saturday's fiery local derby 44-12 triumph over the Queanbeyan Kangaroos. Parsons, the leading Canberra Raiders Cup try-scorer this season with 16 tries in 11 games, is hoping to make it to NSW Cup level.

"Terry [Campese's] a great role model, he helps me out heaps and over the last two years he's been really good to me," Parsons said.

Tuggeranong Bushrangers 32 (Tries: J Sandford, B Moeakiola, M Brophy, L Oakley, J Martin, J Haywood-Whiley; Goals: L Oakley 4) defeated Belconnen United Sharks 22 (Tries: E McCarroll 2, L Kaloutolu, N Ngere; Goals: M Woolnough 3)

Queanbeyan Blues 44 (Tries: M Parsons 2, I Latu 2, U Asomua, J Delle, T Campese, C Ale; Goals: T Campese 6) defeated Queanbeyan Kangaroos 12 (Tries: T Casey, J Baxter; Goals: L Ingram 2)

Goulburn Bulldogs 22 (Tries: D Stephens, J Little, I Walker, J Martin; Goals: I Walker 3) drew Gungahlin Bulls 22 (Tries: M Richards, M Fellows, N Saddler, J Owen; Goals: L Thomson 3)

Canberra Raiders Cup: West Belconnen Warriors scrape two-point win after Yass Magpies stage 12-point comeback





Unforced errors and scrappy play proved the theme of Sunday's match at Raiders Belconnen.

"We made a lot of errors, and we made it very hard for ourselves," Warriors coach Matt Gafa said. "Our defence on our goal line is what got us the two points today I think. We were pretty poor and scrappy otherwise.

West Belconnen Warriors 18 (Tries: K Rushton 2, B Withers; Goals: B Graham 3) d Yass Magpies 16 (Tries: B Timmer, B Maher, C Esera; Goals: S Davis 2)

2021 Canberra Raiders Cup: Round 13 Preview

Image

UPDATE: Canberra Raiders Cup Round 13 called off: Due to extensive rain in the Canberra region, all grounds have been closed. All Canberra Raiders Cup, Katrina Fanning Shield, George Tooke Shield and Under 19s matches will be recorded as a washout.

The Gungahlin Bulls are still on top of the Canberra Raiders Cup ladder, but the Queanbeyan Blues are nipping at their heels. The Bulls have still only been defeated once this season, but Saturday's draw with the Goulburn Bulldogs has seen Blues draw within one competition point of the ladder leaders. The West Belconnen Warriors have moved into third place on the ladder, while the Queanbeyan Kangaroos and Goulburn Bulldogs are fighting it out for fourth. They are level on competition points and points difference - with the Roos in fourth only on percentages.

Yass Magpies V Gungahlin Bulls

The Magpies host the ladder leading Bulls at Walker Park on Saturday - and it doesn't get much tougher. The Magpies are now on a five game losing streak, after they fell short last weekend against the Warriors at Kippax. The Warriors went to the break with an 18-4 lead, but the Magpies then made a comeback. Magpies winger Bailey Timmer crossed 10 minutes into the second half, while Raiders SG Ball forward Caleb Esera stormed over the line in the 60th minute. At that point, the Magpies trailed by just two points - and while they had their opportunities in the final quarter, they just couldn't score. The Warriors held on for an 18-16 win, in a scrappy match marred by errors and penalties.

With five minutes remaining, it looked like the Bulls would produce a narrow, come from behind win against the Bulldogs at Gungahlin last Saturday. They always seem to do just enough to win. They trailed 12-6 at the break, and then by 18-12 after the opening 10 minutes of the second half. Tries to Raiders juniors Matthew Fellows and Noah Saddler saw the Bulls take a 22-18 lead at the 75th minute. Goulburn winger Jyi Little was the fly in the ointment for the Bulls. He charged over in the corner in the dying stages and leveled the scores at 22 all - but the conversion failed from the sideline. And then there was not enough time left for the deadline to be broken.



The Bulls rank second in the league in attack - but defence is their relative weakness. They rank sixth in the competition for fewest points conceded. However, no team has conceded more points per match than the Magpies - and only the Rams have a bigger negative points differential. Yass has the home ground advantage in this contest, but it is difficult to see them springing an upset against Gungahlin.

Season record: Magpies 2 and 7, 1 draw (8th, -84)
Bulls 9 and 1, 1 draw (1st, +62)
Form: Magpies LLLLL
Bulls WLWWD
Attacking record: Magpies 25, Bulls 34 points scored per match
Defensive record: Magpies 33, Bulls 28 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 4 Bulls 36 defeated Magpies 34 at Gungahlin Enclosed

Woden Valley Rams V West Belconnen Warriors



The Rams come into this contest off the bye - after forcing a 28 all draw with the Bulldogs in their last outing. That was some relief for a team on a seven game losing streak. The Warriors were spanked by the Blues, 42-10, two weeks ago, but held on for a narrow two point victory against the Magpies last Sunday. Expect the Warriors to be too strong in this one, even though they're not on their own turf.



Season record: Rams 1 and 8, 1 draw (9th, -142)
Warriors 6 and 4, 1 draw (3rd, -4)
Form: Rams LLLLD
Warriors LWWLW
Attacking record: Rams 18, Warriors 23 points scored per match
Defensive record: Rams 33, Warriors 23 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 4 Warriors 30 defeated Rams 12 at Kippax

Queanbeyan Blues V Tuggeranong Bushrangers

The Blues now on a four game winning streak, following a big 44-12 win over the Kangaroos in the Queanbeyan derby at Freebody Oval last Saturday. The Blues have the best attack and defence in the competition, but most were expecting a might tighter contest. The match was effectively all over by half time, with the Blues leading 28-0. Electric fullback Matt Parsons scored a double, as did second rower Isaiah Latu. Parsons has now scored 16 tries this season, and sits atop the top try scorers list.





The Bushrangers broke a three game losing streak last weekend with a 32-22 win over the Sharks. The Sharks had the better of the first half, with tries to fullback Livai Kaloutolu and hooker Ewan McCarroll giving the visitors a 12-0 lead after 20 minutes. Bushrangers veteran Michael Brophy, playing at five eighth, burrowed across the line from dummy half in the 25th minute. Five minutes later, second rower Nuku Ngere stepped through the middle, to score beside the posts, giving the Sharks an 18-4 lead. The Bushies closed the gap just before half time, with a try in the corner to winger Brigham Moeakiola.

The Bushrangers scored four straight tries in the second half - to Jack Sandford, Jordan Martin, Julian Haywood-Whiley and Liam Oakley - and had well and truly secured the game with 10 minutes remaining. They were aided by the dismissal of Sharks fullback Kaloutolu in the 58th minute. Ewen McCarroll got his second try of the day for the Sharks with seven minutes remaining, but it was by then all too late.





While the Bushrangers will be bouyed by that victory, expect the Blues to continue on their winning ways on Saturday at Seiffert.

Season record: Blues 9 and 2 (2nd, +206)
Bushrangers 4 and 7 (7th,-60)
Form: Blues LWWWW
Bushrangers WLLLW
Attacking record: Blues 37, Bushrangers 25 points scored per match
Defensive record: Blues 18, Bushrangers 30 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 4 Blues 60 defeated Bushrangers 6 at Greenway

Belconnen United Sharks V Queanbeyan Kangaroos

The Sharks host the Kangaroos at the old Raiders HQ at Bruce on Saturday - with both teams being last start losers. The fourth placed Kangaroos have the better recent form and the better season record. But it should be a good contest, with the Sharks being far from easy beats this season. The Sharks are being steered around well by five eighth Matthew Woolnough - and they have some good young talent - so don't be surprised if the home team can produce a bit of an upset.



Season record: Sharks 4 and 7 (6th, -34)
Kangaroos 5 and 5 (4th, +28)
Form: Sharks WLLWL
Kangaroos LWWWL
Attacking record: Sharks 25, Kangaroos 28 points scored per match
Defensive record: Sharks 28, Kangaroos 25 points conceded per match
Last meeting: Round 4 Kangaroos 24 defeated Sharks 18 at Freebody Oval
