NORDIC CUP 2014 - GAME 1
Norway were edged out by visiting Denmark in the first game of the 2014 Nordic Cup, in Bislett Stadium, Oslo. Despite taking 7th and 47th minute leads the Vikingen were twice pegged back and then overhauled by a resilient Danish side.
Isaac Schmidt, for Norway, and scrum half Viiga Lima, for Denmark, were the two best players on the field, although a try and two goals from debutant Richard Groom proved the difference.
Sweden enters the competition next month when they will visit Copenhagen on 16 August.
