Gurias rumble with 34-12 win over Isapea in Lae

The Gurias registered first points from a penalty in the opening minutes from boot of Elipas Pidik.

Pidik made it 4-0 not long after Isapea gave away another  penalty right in front of the posts.

But it was the Gulf boys who crossed the tryline first when five-eighth Solomon Pokari Kale  slipped a  no-look pass to Jack Manda who ran in to score.

Japheth Olik put his side in front after converting the try.

But the Gurias hit back straight after with quick hands that created an overlap for Pidik to score out wide.

The Vipers dominated possession in the opening minutes of the game making the Gurias defend under pressure.

They were the first to score in the 19th minute after five- eighth Peter Palus showed his class to throw a dummy and slice through the Gurias defence and run away to score.

The home side continued to build on the pressure and were in again just before the 30 minute mark when Supa George pounced on a grubber.

Quintan Ragi added the extras to put his side 12 points in front.

The win pushed the Engans effectively to third place with 17 points on the Digicel Cup points ladder as the premier team fell back to fourth position with 16 points.


Mt Hagen Eagles maintained the second position with 19 points after beating Waghi Tumbe 16-4 in Minz while Lae Snax Tigers maintain the top position with 21 points. This was after collecting two free points for a bye yesterday.

Gurias lead 20-0 at break

With a vocal home crowd behind them, the Gurias came out with all guns blazing in Digicel Cup’s round 3 match. The Muruks were forced to mostly defend in the opening minutes as the Gurias threatened to score.

It was the former Muruks player, now Gurias halfback Stanley Olo, who scored the first try in the 7th minute after a barnstorming run to slam the ball over on the wing. The Gurias continued to dominate possession and were in again right before the 20-minute mark when a short ball to Pidi Tongap opened up a gap for him to barge over to score.
