Snax Lae Tigers focused to make grand final

Snax Lae Tigers is focused this season to make it all the way to the grand final.

Coach Stanley Tepend said Tigers are overdue for a grand final win after doing well in the round robin but missing out on the grand final every season.

Tigers are currently leading the ladder after Round 2 following their win on the weekend against Port Moresby Vipers.

Tepend said it’s really early now but they’d like to make the finals.

“We owe it to all our supporters and families that have stuck with us over the years and also to the Franchise owner Lae Snax who have stuck by this team,” Tepend said.

Tigers take on Wamp Nga Mt Hagen Eagles this weekend at Hagen.

Tepend said it will be a hard road trip but the plane trip to Moresby to play the Vipers on the weekend is an advantage because they wouldn’t be on the road two weeks in a row.

“Even though it’s an away game for us, we will be really looking forward to that to gain some support in the highlands for the season so hopefully we’ll get a win,” Tepend said.
