Vikings victors

Wednesday 24 February 2010 | Published in Regional


The Vikings are proving to be a difficult team to put away in the open men’s touch rugby competition, trouncing the Warriors on Monday 6-2.

Meanwhile the northern group Rama faced a somewhat tired Avatiu League Boys team who’ve played hard on the league field but ran out of energy for their touch rugby game.

Nevertheless the league boys managed to dot down a try against Rama who ran away with the game 7-1.

The Oda Rebels caused an upset when they outsmarted their fancier opponents the Germinators to win their tight match 6-5.

In the women’s competition, the point’s table leading team FBI couldn’t find the extra energy to put away the fast improving TSL Rookies who edged out FBI 3-2 on Monday.

The Devil Slayers played a ‘no mercy’ style of game to beat the women’s competition leaders the Vixens by four tries to 2.

The Bounty Hunters had a match on their hands when they faced the northern group team Rama who held them to a 2-all draw.

Today, the mixed competition will continue at the Avatiu swamp with four games lined up for the day.

Open competition results – (men) Warriors 2 vs Vikings 6, Avatiu League Boys 1 vs Rama 7, Oda Rebels 6 vs Germinators 5, (women) FBI 2 vs TSL Rookies 3, Vixens 2 vs Devil Slayers 4, Bounty Hunters 2 vs Rama 2. Mixed category draw – 5.35pm (on field one) 007 vs Klasix, 5.35pm (on field two) Club Raro Stormers vs Marekos, 6.10pm (on field one) No Names vs The Roxz, 6.10pm (on field two) Vikens vs Rama.
