Spartacus went down to a narrow 5-13 loss to Vänersborg at the weekend. Spartacus started the brighter of the two teams and scored an early try thanks to a catch and drive from the line-out which was grounded by Janne Johansson.

However, VRK, who were bolstered on the day by several GRF players, slowly found their composure. Two tries and a penalty gave them the win.

Not the best of rugby, owing to the wet conditions, but both teams showed real intensity at ruck time and a good day was had by all!
