Vikings finish 2018 with bonus point win

The game lived up to the old saying of 'a game of 2 halves'


I must admit I am struggling to write this report as after last night's annual Santa Suit social, my memory is a tad fuzzy hahaha

It was cold, wet and with only 15 players (one of which was me!!) the Vikings looked to finish of 2018 with a victory. The guys had the bonus point wrapped up by half-time with tries from - James Wontner-Smith, Alex Bax, Kevin Hastings and the impressive Dan Queen. Queen was only able to convert one of the scores but it was still a commanding 22-0 lead at the half. Skipper Henry Shannon asked for the lads to be ruthless in the 2nd half but unfortunately he got more like toothless! They let Gosford back into the game, conceding 3 very sloppy and soft tries (one was converted) to give them the momentum going into the final 10 minutes with the score standing at 22-17. The lads re-grouped and went back to what had worked so well in the 1st half and with 4 minutes left, winger Mike Hadley scored in the corner to give the guys a hard fought victory!!
