Wigmen getting back to basics

Getting back to the basics was what the Kroton Hela Wigmen did to get the win over the Chimbu Warriors last night.

Roderick Puname’s men had too much class, beating the newcomers 26-6 at the Oil Search National Football Stadium.

“It was good bouncing back from the loss against the Tigers last week. It was quite embarrassing. We had a long talk after the game and wanted to get back to the basics and getting the small things right.

“That was the idea, working on the small things and making sure we competed for the 80 minutes.”

He said there is still a lot of work to be done.

“There were areas in tonight’s game that were really good for us and areas that we really need to improve on.

“We’re playing the Gurias next who are a very quality side so we have to be much more polished and more clinical.”

Puname also confirmed the signing of former Agmark Rabaul Gurias playmaker, Stanley Olo, for this season.

“We asked him if he wanted to come join us and he was more than willing to come. We’re just really happy that he’s with us.

“Stanley brings in the experience around the ruck area that we really needed last year. With him in the squad, it has really put us on track.”
