Queanbeyan faces Royals at Campese Oval on Saturday in what will be a classic affair. Royals have former Whites coach Wayne Southwell as their mentor while the Whites have Sokai Tai who came from Royals in the off-season.
The Whites started the season with a clean-sweep of Gungahlin while Royals only won the colts game against Wests. But their 10-0 loss in first grade was impressive given the number of Brumbies fielded against them.
While the Whites have the forwards Royals will have an edge in the backs as the youngsters in the home combination will take time to develop.
It will be a torrid day with plenty of buzz around town about the game.
The Whites will go into a two week break before meeting Wests on April 18th at Campese.
