2017 Review: Woden Valley Rams

The Under 18’s Premiership win was a highlight in an otherwise tough season for the Woden Valley Rams.

First Grade

Position:  7th
Win/Loss/Draw: 5 – 8 – 3
Points For: 353
Points Against: 419

The Woden Valley Rams endured a frustrating season as they recorded an incredible three draws for the season.

Having started the season strongly, the Rams were undefeated after their first three games before enduring a streak of seven matches without a win.

However, the Rams started delivering on their potential late in the season as they only narrowly lost to the Queanbeyan Blues before claiming a memorable win against the Kangaroos.

Woden had the sixth best defence and seventh best attack in the competition.

Reserve Grade

Position:  7th
Win/Loss/Draw:  5 – 10 – 1
Points For: 392
Points Against: 342

It was a difficult season for the Rams in Reserve Grade as their season had many similarities with the First Grade side.

The Rams were undefeated after their first three games of the season before suffering a five-match losing streak.

Woden managed to claim victories against Tuggeranong, Goulburn and Belconnen but didn’t threaten to make the finals.

The Rams had the fifth-best attack and sixth best defence in the competition.

Ladies League Tag

Position: 7th
Win/Loss/Draw: 5 – 11 – 0
Points For: 198
Points Against: 363

Remarkably, Woden’s League Tag outfit also finished seventh after winning only five matches.

However, the Rams won only one of their first 12 matches to sit in last place on the ladder with only four matches remaining.

Remarkably, Woden managed to finish the season with four straight wins to rise up the table.

The Rams had the sixth best attack and seventh best defence in the competition.


Position: 2nd
Win/Loss/Draw: 12 Wins, 4 Lost,
Points For: 624
Points Against: 263

There was plenty of joy for the Woden Rams as their Under 18’s outfit claimed a memorable Premiership thanks to a late try.

Having remained fairly consistent through the early stages of the season, Woden ramped up a gear to win their final six matches.

Once in the finals, the Rams brushed aside the Queanbeyan Kangaroos who had earlier claimed the minor premiership before beating Goulburn in a nail-biting grand final.

Woden boasted the second-best attack and third-best defence in the competition.
