Palais skipper scores PNG’s first try

PNG Palais skipper Debbie Kaore scored PNG’s first try at the HSBC Sydney sevens currently underway at the Allianz stadium in Australia.

Unfortunately, Palais went down to England this morning and then later lost to Japan as well.

Following three straight loses on day one of the HSBC Sydney sevens tournament, the PNG women’s team were out to improve their performances.

Pooled against Dubai sevens champions, Australia is never easy but PNG has shown a lot of courage facing France and Spain as well.

The English women handed PNG Palais their hardest lesson yet at the 2018 HSBC Sydney Sevens as day two kicked off today.

England ran in five tries to leave PNG with their biggest loss of the HSBC Sydney sevens tournament so far – 52 points to nil.

Captain Kaore showed some class in the Palais’ second and final match of the day against Japan.

Kaore scored PNG’s first try at the HSBC Sydney sevens as a way of encouraging the PNG girls to stick to the fight.

PNG also lost to Japan 41-5 as the tournament makes its way into the semi-finals to see who takes out the HSBC Sydney sevens.
