North Harbour Rays vs Canberra Vikings match will be kick off at Pittwater Rugby Park, Sydney, Australia, Saturday 26 September 2015 online, Time 15:00 (AEDT) NRC Queensland Country vs Perth Spirit Live Streaming and its broadcast On Fox Sports.
The Rays had the bye last weekend and I’d suggest at least the coaches spent their weekend watching replays of the Vikings’ 70 point thrashing of the Stars looking for some type of weakness. North Harbour have shown plenty of guts this season beating the Spirit in Perth and showing glimpses of class against the likes of the Stars, Brisbane and Rising. They’ll have to show a lot more than just glimpses this week against the undefeated Canberrians.
The Vikings were nigh on unstoppable against the Sydney Stars last Thursday. It was as if they sensed that the injury-riddled Stars were vulnerable and decided to apply the killer blow to their season. It’s a situation very similar to this weekend as the Rays have also suffered numerous injuries, with Jack Dempsey and Tyson Davis the most recent members of Team Rehab.
It’s also worth noting that this will be Juniors Day with all the junior rugby players from clubs affiliated with the North Harbour Rays encouraged to come along. There will be Rays t-shirt giveaways and plenty of activities.
Joe Powell was in everything last Thursday night for the Vikings in what was probably ideal scrumhalf conditions. A dominant pack, a test standard flyhalf and a team in complete control. Powell relished the occasion and was a constant danger. Josh Holmes has been, arguably, the form scrumhalf of the competition so far and anyone who has yet to see his miked up game on NRC Extra Time needs to rectify that immediately. This clichéd young bull v old bull clash will be a weekend highlight.
In a competition that is jam packed with high quality backrowers, and prominent try scorers at that, two of the standouts have been Boyd Killingworth for the Rays and Jared Butler for the Vikings. Killingworth has been the heart and soul of the Rays pack and a constant as names have fallen by the wayside around him. Vikings captain Butler has had the benefit of consistency and class around him, but his quality his undoubted.
