Vipers move matches to Sir Hubert Murray

The Port Moresby franchise has undergone dialogue with PNGRFL and they have reached the conclusion that franchise can run its game at Sir Hubert Murray Stadium instead of the usual venue, Santos National Football Stadium.

Commenting on this move, the Digicel ExxonMobil Cup Competition Manager, Paul Joseph, said the Sir Hubert Murray Stadium is world-class facility, it would be great to see rugby league played at the stadium, because, there have not been any rugby league matches at the stadium in the past few years as the stadium was made home to rugby union.
