Last night the Canberra Vikings put in a better performance in the second round of the ARC to score a 17 – 8 win against the Spirit in Perth. It was a low scoring affair with tries to the Vikings Matt Carraro and Christian Lealiifano, and a late consolation try to the Spirit’s Ratu Siganiyavi. If Perth had a half decent kicker it would have a much closer game, but hey that’s rugby.
Other highlights and lowlights of the match include Tawake severely smashing Spirit prop Pek Cowan (so badly that he required strechering off & oxygen); and an ominous early shower for “Soggy” Faingaa who struggled off the field with a knee injury.
