On Saturday 16 November, the UL Vikings hosted UCD for the 2019 edition of the Intervarsity Championships. The Intervarsity Championship is a much sought-after piece of silverware by our member college teams as well as playing a pivotal role in giving their new players competitive game experience before the new season kicks off in March.
It also marked another significant milestone for UL in particular. The University of Limerick have invested heavily in their sporting facilities, and this was the first time the Vikings were able to welcome a team to the new facilities including a new 3g pitch.
Both teams battled hard in the cold weather, and it would be UCD who would come out 17-8 victors and return the Intervarsity Championship to Dublin for another year – congratulations UCD!
