With Gridiron Victoria streaming the game on their youtube channel, all of our fans were able to catch the game no matter where they were in the world.
Recent history has seen the Warriors defeat the Buccaneers in Vic Bowls (4-0 leading into Vic Bowl XXX) however the Buccaneers were looking to make their own history by going the whole season undefeated, a mark they fell short of at the final hurdle in 2013 when the Warriors defeated them 30-13 in Vic Bowl XXIX.
