Central Dabari

Central Dabaris’ second loss

The Fortuna Online Central Dabaris played their best in Port Moresby yesterday but the Hela Wigmen delivered a strong performance against them.

The Wigmen proved to be the better side while the Dabaris missing key players and regular Captain, Adam Korave, lacked direction and leadership.

The Wigmen raced to a 12-point lead at half-time scoring three unconverted tries, with winger Gilmo Paul bagging a double and Julius Yakopa scoring the other.
