The match played at Nikao Field on Monday turned out to be a cracker of a game.
Bounty Hunters got points on the board early with impact player Edith Nicholas directing the play.
The side went into half time leading 3-1.
In the second half, NukzPower settled into the game and found its rhythm with Shar Atai making breaks to close the gap.
A scoop from Nicholas combining with a late cut from Monica Wichman to score saw Bounty Hunters hold onto its slim lead to finish the Bluesky women’s competition in third place.
Bounty Hunters won 6-5.
The first half of the women’s grand final was a tough one with both teams defending well.
It was FBI that scored first. NIKS countered with a try and the score stayed locked at 1-all going into half time.
A penalty to NIKS near the five metre mark and quick thinking from veteran Pare Tangata to tap and go to beat a scrambling FBI defence diving at the try line to score the side’s second try.
FBI came back to score its final try of the night through a wicked change of direction and step from young Paeru Ngaroi to seal the grand final for FBI winning 4-2.
The mixed touch competition will be held today.
