The Boorowa Rovers will be looking to keep up their unbeaten start to the season as they head over to Bungendore to take on the Tigers in what promises to be a sterner examination after the second placed team easily dispensed with the UC Grizzlies and Gunning Roos in their opening encounters.

Jayden Cutting has been in strong form for the senior men's side, scoring multiple tries in both games, while the team would be happy that while their scoring has been at a premium, their defensive sets have been strong: The Rovers have only conceded three tries across the opening two matches, with all of them coming against the Roos.

Bungendore, on the other hand, will be coming off a double break, with a bye scheduled before the Easter break.

However, while it is still too early to be assessing favourites at this stage of the season, they started their season in a tight match up, eking out a 16-14 win against a competitive Crookwell Green Devils outfit. Half-back Zach Smith was crucial in the encounter, scoring four goals to help secure his side a victory.

The Rovers take on the Tigers at 2pm at Mick Sherd Oval.
