Now in it's third season, the Buildcorp National Rugby Competition (NRC) has unleashed some of the most exciting rugby talents Australia has to offer.
Last year, the University of Canberra Vikings finished second in NRC last season, falling to Brisbane City at the final hurdle.
In 2016 there's a buzz around Canberra that the UC VIkings are ready to go one better, with some of Australia’s best players representing the ACT in red, white and black.
The UC Vikings are comprised of players from each of the ACT's seven Premier Grade clubs, with many of the Aquis Brumbies fringe players squaring up for a shot at professional contracts, via the NRC.
With seven games scheduled for 2016 – four of which will be played at Viking Park in Wanniassa – there’s plenty for rugby fans in the ACT to be excited about between August and October.
The UC Vikings will field a team this year littered with Super Rugby talent, and capped off with a number of players we will surely see in a Brumbies jersey in the years to come.
With a lot of great rugby on offer for fans, the UC VIkings will be a team you won't want to miss in 2016.
