I went to Seiffert Oval today... turned up at about 2pm. Went to the canteen... who should be there but Terry Campese, serving the customers. Had a bit of a chat to him... he's a great bloke. And volunteering to do that one hour out from his game... what a champion.

Canberra Raiders Cup: Kangaroos bounce back to avoid Blues in thrilling Queanbeyan derby

Queanbeyan Kangaroos coach Aaron Gorrell thought his team was unlucky not to get the win, after his young side bounced back from 16 points down with 23 minutes remaining to snatch an unlikely 28-28 draw.

"[The Blues] did exactly what we thought they were going to do, but we weren't bothered to have a bit of an effort to try and stop it," Kangaroos coach Aaron Gorrell said. "If we can play for 60 minutes I think we'll be pretty hard to beat."







Queanbeyan Blues 28 (I Latu, J Wheeler, A Woods, I Cotric, Z Patch tries; T Campese 4 goals) drew Queanbeyan Kangaroos 28 (B Cronan 2, J Baxter, E Sinoti, J Simbiken tries; L Cooper 4 goals)

Woden Valley Rams 26 (T Evans, L Eveston, M Geiger, J Morgan, L Withers tries; L Withers 3 goals) defeated Belconnen United Sharks 10 (M Woolnough, M Butz tries; T Aroha-Tuinauvai goals)

West Belconnen Warriors 60 defeated Gungahlin Bulls 18.

Terry's always up for a chat
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Canberra Raiders Cup: Round 2 Wrap

Image

The Queanbeyan derby produced an extraordinary 28-28 draw between the Blues and Kangaroos at Seiffert Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues looked like they were well in control, leading 28-12 with 20 minutes remaining. But the Kangaroos, led by young half Lachlan Cooper, scored three tries in the space of 10 minutes to level the scoreline - and then neither side could manage the tie breaker in the final stages.

The Queanbeyan Blues the match strongly, racing to a 16-0 lead by the 20th minute, with tries to Isaiah Latu, Jake Wheeler and Aidan Woods. At that stage it looked like "how many?" for the Blues. But the Kangaroos halted the momentum in the 26th minute, with a try to centre Bryan Cronan. Roos five eight Tre Williams put up a high bomb, and two Blues players could not stop the bouncing ball, and Cronan swooped in to collect it and score. The Kangaroos followed up five minutes later when forward Jayden Baxter charged over the line - with the Roos piggybacked up the field by two penalties.



The Blues unleashed their attack once more just prior to the half time break - with winger Ilija Cotric, brother of Raiders' winger Nick Cotric, scoring in the north east corner. It saw the home team go to the break with a 22-12 lead. The Blues continued the point scoring 11 minutes into the second half, when half back Zac Patch made a break, "threw" the dummy half pass of the year, and then streaked away to score under the posts. The conversion from captain-coach Terry Campese gave the Blues a 16 point advantage.

The Kangaroos started their big comeback in the 60th minute, when Lachlan Cooper produced a perfect bomb to the corner for his winger Eli Sinoti to score a four pointer - and Cooper followed up with a booming sideline conversion. The Roos were in again just three minutes later through Jeremiah Simbiken - and while Cooper missed the conversion, the men in maroon suddenly trailed by only six points. Bryan Cronan scored a double for Roos with 11 minutes left on the clock, the conversion leveling the match at 28 apiece.

The Blues lost their way in the 78th minute, failing to take a shot at field goal despite getting into perfect position. It was a tale of missed field goals in the final two minutes, with Lachlan Cooper missing an attempt with two minutes remaining, and Terry Campese missing in the final minute.

"We probably didn't deserve two points [for the win], but in the end we were probably unlucky not to get them," Kangaroos coach Aaron Gorrell told The Canberra Times after the match.



In other games on Saturday, the Woden Valley Rams were too strong for the Belconnen United Sharks at O'Connor, running out 26-10 winners. Veteran player-coach Lincoln Withers, captain Jeff Morgan and young gun, Lachlan Eveston - a Raiders Under 20s player, returning from injury - all scored tries. The West Belconnen Warriors turned around a Round 1 loss - posting 60 points against the Gungahlin Bulls. They finished with a 60-18 victory - and Bulls coach David Howell will no doubt be concerned about their start to the season.





On Sunday, the Goulburn Bulldogs produced a big 56-12 victory at home over the Yass Magpies - with a hat trick former Raiders Hayden Hodge, and doubles to James Aubusson and Matt Worboys. The win puts the Bulldogs on top of the competition ladder. The Bulldogs were down to one player on the bench, after injuries to Tyler Cornish (suspected broken jaw) and centre Dillon Rota - but still delivered on the scoreboard.



The Canberra Raiders Cup takes a break during the Easter weekend, so Round 3 will be contested in two weeks time.

Injuries sour Goulburn Bulldogs' Canberra Raiders Cup win

One was left with a broken jaw. One taken to hospital with a spinal injury. The ones who were left behind inspired the Goulburn Bulldogs to a 56-12 thrashing of the Yass Magpies.

Goulburn fullback Tyler Cornish has a suspected broken jaw, while centre Dillon Rota was taken to hospital with a spinal injury. Rota has recovered but Cornish is set for a lengthy stint on the sideline in what looms as a devastating blow for the ladder leaders.
