The clash this Saturday afternoon though is likely to provide a much tougher examination of the Vikings title credentials than the 66-5 hammering they handed the visitors to the ACT in 2017. This is the Canberra clubs first visit to the island nation to take on the Drua in the NRC having hosted the free-running Pacific Islanders at Viking Park last season.

Kick-off is at 3pm and entry if free for all. Dominant on their way to a 54-17 triumph away from home. The Vikings are back in Canberra this Sunday, taking on the highly-touted Western Force at Viking Park. Coming off the loss to Queensland Country, it was important for the Vikings to make a statement against the Rays and they did just that.

Haweras touchline conversion split the posts and the Vikings were starting to pull away. That set the tone for the Vikings, though it would take ten minutes for a third to come. The towering-wing ran on to a perfectly weighted grubber from Andy Muirhead and made no mistake with the finish, leaping over the line in the right-hand corner. It was Taliauli who had the honour.

Its a great opportunity to be coaching in a professional competition, with such a strong playing and coaching group, Hooper said. Tim Sampson has had a lot of success already in the QLD and ACT Premier competitions, so I am looking forward to working with him and the other guys, and hopefully as a group we can be challenging for the NRC finals this year.

The Vikings entered the Australian Rugby Shield in 2006, playing as the "ACT & Southern NSW Vikings" following the renaming of the ACT Rugby Union after its expansion into Southern New South Wales the previous season.[77] The team had two close matches against NSW Country and Perth Gold during the season, but managed to progress undefeated through the three pool games, semi-final and final to win the competition and take the shield. The Vikings played the Melbourne Axemen in the grand final at Viking Park and never looked back after the third minute when inside centre Josh Staniforth scored the first of the side's five tries for the match in a 3610 win.

The Canberra Vikings played in the QRU's Premiership from 2001 to 2003 and won the grand final each year to take three consecutive titles.

Eight minutes later, the Vikings scored the try of the game. The Brumbies flyhalf pumped once then popped inside to Mack Hansen, the Junior Wallabies fullback flying into space and breaking in behind the Eagles defensive-line. The Vikings scrum, now in the ascendency, gave the backs good platform inside their half. Attacking down the short-side, Ben Hyne went eight-nine with Ryan Lonergan who bumped the ball behind Irae Simone to Hawera.
