Digicel Cup double header in POM

Port Moresby will host two Digicel Cup matches this Sunday at the Sir John Guise Stadium.

PNG National Rugby League Competition Manager, Stanley Hondina said the first game to kick off at 1.30pm will see the NCDC Vipers host PRK Mendi Muruks.

Both teams lost their opening clashes last weekend and will be vying to register their first competition points of the season.

The second match of the day is between the reigning premiers Lae Snax Tigers (who had a comfortable win over Agmark Rabaul Gurias) and Kroton Hela Wigmen.

“This shapes up to be the match of the round,” said Hondina.

Hondina said there will be a Port Moresby Rugby Football League women’s game between Paga Panthers and Souths as a curtain raiser to the first Digicel Cup game.

Gates open at 12pm. Gate prices are K10 for the Outer Stands and K20 for Grand Stand per person. Tickets can be bought at the gate. Children under six years old will be admitted free.

Other matches in Round 2 on Sunday will see the Agmark Rabaul Gurias host Bintangor Goroka Lahanis at Kalabond Oval in Kokopo, while Waghi Tumbe take on EPG Enga Mioks in Minj.
