The Auckland Vulcans suffered their second defeat in as many matches when beaten 34-18 at Wentworthville on Sunday.
A poor start to the game saw the Vulcans turn the ball over on numerous occasions and after 10 minutes they trailed 12-0. Twenty minutes, later after sustained pressure, Constantine Mika crossed for their first try. A try to Wentworthville 3 minutes before half time extended the gap to 18-6.
Another poor start in the second half saw Wentworthville score tries in the 7th & 11th minutes to lead 28-6. A try to each side left the final score 34-10.
