The Tarsha Gale Cup Raiders will be looking to kick-start their season having yet to register a victory as the Steelers travel to Belconnen with a solitary Round Two win after a bye in the opening week of competition.

In the SG Ball Cup, the Raiders can remain outright competition leaders with a third win in as many weeks while the Steelers look for their opening win in this year’s campaign.
