INTRUST SUPER CUP
After finishing in 4th place, the PNG Hunters have earned the right to host their first ever home final this weekend when they face the 5th place Sunshine Coast Falcons on Sunday.
In a case of déjà vu, the 2 sides met just last week in the last round of the season with the Hunters flexing their muscle in a 34-4 victory. The full house sign is expected to go up at the National Football Stadium as the Hunters with a perfect home record look to make easy work of the Falcons once again.
A win here for the PNG Franchise would see them face off against either the Townsville Blackhawks or the East Tigers in the next round of finals.
Coach Michael Marum will be fielding a full strength team with only strike centre Thompson Teteh missing from the side with a season ending injury. Coach Marum stated that we would want his side to not let complacency creep in as the Falcons will be sending up a stronger side then the one that was easily overran last weekend.
Watch the Hunters continue their hunt for a spot in the Grand final LIVE at 2:55pm this Sunday on TVWAN Action – the home of rugby in PNG.
After 20 weeks of 11 teams spilling blood, sweat and tears throughout the year, the Digicel Cup 2016 season culminates with the Grand Final this Saturday when the Snax Tigers take on the Agmark Gurias.
Both sides have had contrasting seasons as the Tigers held top spot for most of the season while the Gurias only scraped into the finals after suffering losses away from the confines of Mt Tavurvur. The Gurias have risen to every challenge that has been put in front of them and will be out to claim a 3rd title for the franchise.
The Snax Tigers, the 3-time minor premiers will be appearing in their first ever Grand Final after failing to make it to the big dance with promising seasons gone by, whereas the Gurias will be making their 5th appearance after featuring in the last 6 Grand finals of Digicel Cup.
Tigers coach Stanley Tepend, will be banking on the experience of veteran forward and captain Roy Kela to lead his troops into battle as they look to counter the free flowing rugby of the Gurias with direct runs up the middle of the Gurias defensive line.
The Rabaul Guiras take on the Lae Snax Tigers at the Digicel Cup final LIVE at 2:30pm this Saturday on TVWAN Action – the home of rugby in PNG.
