Gurias thrash Isou

The inclusion of three PNG hunters’ players in the Agmark Gurias was more than enough as they thumped the Gulf Isou in this afternoons Round 12 clash of the Digicel Cup in Port Moresby, 54 – 4.

The Gurias dominated the 80 minute match with quick ruck play and brutal defence and never looked troubled by the Isou.

Wartovo Puara Junior orchestrated and had a hand in most f the tries as he and fellow Hunters Dilbert Isaac and Ila Alu helped the Gurias rack up one of their highest scores of the season.

From the get go the Gurias looked the faster and physical.

The Isou defensive line looked staggered as the Gurias ran through gaps at will racing to an 18 point lead in the first 20th minutes of the match with tries to Eliakim Lukara, and Dilbert Isaac..

A try to Isou Centre Peter Soi was their only consolidation before a try to Gurias fullback Terry Wap sealed any hope of a Isou come back.

In the second half it was all one way traffic as Gurias piled on 32 more points through tries to,  Francis Takai, Ila Alu, Konnie Bernard, Billy Torea, Kingston Paul, and John Raga.

Five-Eight Pokara had a decent day with the boot kicking 7 from 10 conversion attempts ending a lopsided match to the Gurias.
