Watch National Rugby Championship NRC Live Streaming 2014 Round 9 Brisbane City vs Canberra Vikings match will be kick off at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Saturday 18 October 2014 online, Time 16:35 AEDT and its broadcast On Fox Sports.
This match will be played as a curtain raiser for the Bledisloe Cup match, it will also be televised on Fox Sports.
Brisbane are assured of finals footy and have been one of the stronger teams all NRC season. A win here gives them a chance to come second, a solitary competition point will see them secure third and a loss (no BP) might mean fourth. City have good form, thrashing the Rays by 50 last week, their one flaw is that when they lose they lose big, the Rising and the Rams both running up cricket scores in their only two losses.
The Vikings will be disappointed with their season thus far, despite having a strong team steeped in super rugby experience they have been mediocre. Last week the Vikings lost what seemed a must win match at home against the Eagles. That being said they are still a chance to make the finals and turn it all around. A win here could put the Canberrans into fourth, but for that to happen Perth must also lose. If Perth draw then Canberra would need to win by a bonus point to make the final four.
City have the more consistent team and will have the added advantage of a big home crowd.
