The Blumers Lawyers Canberra Raiders Cup heads into round 13 this weekend, with Woden Valley Rams and West Belconnen Warriors headlining the round as the Rams celebrate Ladies Day.
Woden Valley Rams v West Belconnen Warriors, 3pm Saturday 24 July at Phillip Oval In this weekend’s match of the round, the West Belconnen Warriors will be searching for a win over the Woden Valley Rams to secure their third position on the ladder for another week.
After a close 18-16 win over the Yass Magpies last Sunday, the Warriors will hope to have a more convincing win this Saturday.
But Warriors hooker Logan Reis says they can’t underestimate any team heading into the back end of the competition.
“Playing out in Phillip is always a tough day, if we do the little things right we should be able to come away with the win,” Reis said.
“Attitude is everything on the day, as long as everyone can turn up on the day and do their job, we can stay positive and that’s all we need to do.”
Coming off a bye last weekend, the Woden Valley Rams will be looking to record just their second win of the season as they face the Warriors.
The last time these two teams met was in round four where the Warriors had a convincing 30-12 win over the Rams.
The Rams last game was in round 11 where they were able to draw 28-all with Goulburn City Bulldogs. They will want to build on that performance and secure a win come Saturday at their home ground.
Rams captain Steve Ferry says they are looking good for the weekend as Raiders development players, second rower Clay Webb and fullback Albert Hopoate, join the side.
“They will give us a good boost in the side, they’re two strong powerful players which will be really good,” Ferry said.
As they celebrate their annual Ladies Day round, the Rams will be hoping to take the win for all the women who are involved in the club.
