2019 SEASON – PLAYOFFS WEEK 2
Both the UNSW Raiders Men’s and Women’s team are going to represent in their respective bowl games the Warratah Bowl and the Opal Bowl next weekend! Firstly the Women’s secured a spot in the final with a tough win against the Sydney Uni Lions defeating them 28-16.
Later in the day the UNSW Raiders Men’s secured their spot in the Waratah Bowl for the second year in a row beating the Sydney Uni Lions 62-45! Winning in what the players described as a ‘dog fight’, both teams put everything on the line to pursue a berth in the championship. “I think two of Australia’s best teams battled to the final whistle” Coach Medrano said after the game. “To their credit Sydney Uni have been in the Grand final for 20 years in a row and they knew how to bring it in the finals.”
Both the Raiders teams look to face off against the Northern Sydney Rebels.
