Last Sunday was the second game day of the 2018 season.
The games for both Vikings men were postponed due to the majority of players being on tour with the New Zealand National Teams (Youth and Junior) attending the Oceania Championships in New Caledonia.
Though the Vikings women team played and faced the Hutt Valley Hunters.
Last time both teams met was at last years semi-finals which the Vikings won.
On Sunday the outcome was different and the Hunters won.
Unfortunately, due to absence and injury, the Vikings had only 5 players for the game. All 5 players played their heard out and fought all game but playing against a team with 2 players more on the pitch is almost a situation that can’t end with a win.
