Round five of the Blumers Lawyers Canberra Raiders Cup competition kicks off this weekend with the Queanbeyan derby between the Blues and Roos headlining the match of the round. 

Match of the Round: Queanbeyan Blues vs Queanbeyan Kangaroos, Seiffert Oval, 3pm Saturday 7th May
This weekend's match of the round will see the Blues host the Kangaroos in the Queanbeyan derby with both teams in need of a win.  
The Blues will be coming off a bye and currently sit with just the one win from their first three games. However the Blues will still feel confident after their only win of the season was against the Bushrangers in round two who currently sit on top of the ladder.

Meanwhile, the Kangaroos are the only side left in the competition without a win after going down to the Rams last week 34-28. Despite two tries for the Roos late in the match, they couldn't overcome the deficit as they fell to an 0-3 record to start the season.

Both teams currently sit in the bottom four with poor starts to the season, meaning this game will have some extra weight to it with both teams needing to go on a run sooner rather than later.

It will be a great local derby on Saturday afternoon between two desperate sides trying to push up the ladder. 

Yass Magpies vs Tuggeranong Bushrangers, Walker Park, 3pm Saturday 7th May
After securing their first victory last weekend, the Magpies will be wanting to make it two wins in a row up against the top of the table Bushrangers.

The Magpies scored their first win of the season with a 34-16 win over the Blues away from home in last weekend's match of the round. It was tied 16-all with 15 minutes to go in the match before the Magpies came home strong to score three tries in that final period of the game.

Meanwhile, the Bushrangers currently sit on top of the ladder off the back of being the best defensive side in the competition with a 3-1 record. The Bushrangers were able to dominate the Sharks last week at home, led by hattrick hero Jack Davison, the home side secured a huge 52-16 win.
