Bay of Plenty have suffered a first up loss to Otago during their return to the Women's Provincial Championship.
The Bay last played in the top-tier national competition in 2002.
They lost 38-5 to Otago today at Rotorua International Stadium, during the first round of the 2014 season.
It is a good learning curve for the Bay side who will look to build throughout the year.
