The Queanbeyan Kangaroos have surged back into form with a convincing 44-12 win against the Goulburn Workers Bulldogs at Seears Workwear Oval on Saturday afternoon.
Having started the season with a win and loss, the Kangaroos started the match looking find their form and found it in the opening five minutes as Nukurua Ngere and Rowan Archer both scored down the right edge.
Orcher’s try was a 90 meter intercept and the Queanbeyan center managed a similar feat not long afterwards with a 55 meter effort from an intercept.
Either side of Orcher’s second effort were tries for Sekope Meke who scored twice as the Kangaroos targeted the Bulldogs left edge defence.
Orcher secured his hattrick on the verge of halftime but the Kangaroos’ were dealt a blow as Brent Crisp received a head knock and wasn’t able to return.
The Bulldogs showed more fight in the second half and were rewarded with their first try of the afternoon as Jake Whittaker surged over the line before Jeff Lima was sent to the sin bin.
However, once Lima returned, the Kangaroos once again exposed Goulburn’s left edge as Luke Jones scored in the corner.
Josh Ayers then surged down the middle of the field before offloading to Jake Kiely who scored near the posts.
The Bulldogs kept fighting and added a consolation try on the stroke of fulltime as Fabien Paletua-Kiri carried four defenders with him to score.
