SG Ball Cup

Greenway Oval will host both the Raiders SG Ball and Harold Matthews Cup sides this Sunday while the Tarsha Gale team travel to Sydney on Saturday in round six of their respective competitions.

The SG Ball Cup match will kick-off at 12:30pm, with the Raiders playing against the Victorian Thunderbolts.

The Raiders are currently sitting in tenth position and will be looking for their second win of the season when they take on the Thunderbolts, who currently at the bottom of the ladder without a win.

The Raiders will be fresh heading into the game, having not played for two weeks due to a bye and washout.

Fullback Jack Sandford has been impressive at fullback, while halfback Blake Metcalfe returns to the side having not played last round.

Harold Mathews Cup

The Raiders Harold Matthews team will take on the Central Coast Roosters in round six, with their game kicking off at 2:00pm.

The Raiders will be looking to pick up their first win since round one of the season against the winless Roosters.

Raiders Harold Mathews coach Peter Marrapodi has been very impressed by his forwards in the opening games.

“Our middle forwards sort of came into the competition without a big reputation but they’ve done a great job,” Marrapodi said.

“Guys like Elvis Nauer-Wood, he’s been travelling in from Griffith and he has been doing a great job.”

“Mathais Tomuli-Ah-Kuoi returns for us this week, he came over from Perth and got an opportunity.

So those guys have been great for us,” Marrapodi said.

Marrapodi also praised the side’s attitude and the way they have integrated with one another.

“Their attitude has been fantastic, we’ve got a lot of country boys and coast kids mixed in with the Canberra boys and the way they’ve come together has been fantastic,” Marrapodi said.

“It’s all built up on hard work, the hard work they’ve put in for each other, it’s been really good to be part of the group.”

Tarsha Gale Cup

The Raiders Tarsha Gale Cup side will take on the Wests Tigers at Kirkham Oval in Camden this Saturday at 1:30pm.

The Raiders will be looking for back to back wins after defeating the Rabbitohs 16-14 last week to earn their first win of the season.

The women in green sit just one place below the Tigers on the ladder, so it should be a tight contest.
