Vik­ings emerge vic­to­ri­ous

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT -

Porirua Vik­ings went to the en­emy’s head­quar­ters and came away with a mas­sive win on Satur­day in club rugby league ac­tion.

It has been a sea­son of ups and downs but lately they have been un­stop­pable, rack­ing up 80-point wins. Al­though their 22-18 win over Wainuiomata at Wise Park was as tough as it gets with the for­wards see­ing much more work than the backs, it was likely to be more sat­is­fy­ing.

It took a late try to grab the win, with the home side not help­ing their cause by hav­ing a man sin­binned as the clock was run­ning down.

Vik­ings full­back Johnny Te­leaga con­tin­ues to shine, with his mo­ment of bril­liance to set up Caine Kelopa the stand-out mo­ment in a match played in heavy con­di­tions.

The re­sult puts the Vik­ings top of the ta­ble on 14 points, with Wainui one point back.

St Ge­orge, mean­while, lost the battle of the cel­lard­wellers, 26-20, to Up­per Hutt.

In the re­serve grade, the Vik­ings stay top af­ter de­feat­ing Wainui 48-10. St Ge­orge are third fol­low­ing their 54-0 drub­bing of Up­per Hutt.
