Victoria Tavern Trophy rugby match

On Saturday 1 August 2015, I photographed the game between Northern United celebrate victory over Oriental-Rongotai for the women’s Victoria Tavern Trophy at Porirua Park. It was a super close game – coming down to the very last minute, a real nail biter. The rain also set in making it a slippery pitch. Here are some of the photos I captured during the game:
