Isou surprise Dabaris

The match was marred with a lot of handling errors. Both teams struggled for points for the entire contest.

The low scoring contest was attributed to lack of good game management and control by the spine, let alone discipline in their execution.

With both teams coming off consecutive losses, it did not help their cause mentally as they struggled to get into any sort of rhythm in their offensive, coughing up a lot of possession.

Vipers back in winner’s circle

The much needed win also ended Vipers six games losing streak since round 6.

It was a long time between drinks for the pride of the nation’s capital Port Moresby Vipers since recording their last win back in round 6 against Sepik Pride in Wewak.

The foundation club promised a lot at the start of the season boasting a good mix of youth and experience on their playing rooster apparently things have not worked out for them over the last 6 rounds.

Dabaris knock Isou to continue winning form

After an error riddled opening half the Central men were able to regroup and pulled away in the second half.

After registering their first win of the season against EMK Sepik Pride in Round 5, Gulf Isou have continued to struggle to remain consistent in the competition. This was evident in their last three games losing streak to Hela Wigmen, Vipers and Dabaris.

Sunday’s clash against Dabaris was a must win game for Isou despite their mediocre form of late and the lack of confidence in the game.

Gurias close win

Gurias scored 3 tries in quick succession setting up a commanding lead of 22 points to 4 before Dabaris clawed their way back into the contest. 

The highly anticipated round 5 clash was the main drawcard in pool B as fans gathered in the stands to cheer them on.

It was a game of two halves with Gurias dominating the first before Dabaris showed their resilience and class in the 2nd half. 

Dabaris hold out Pride

Billed as the Pool B match of the round the Sepik franchise came out to prove they are not easy beats, with all guns blazing from the get go, keeping the more experienced Central province outfit in check all the way through.

While the Northern end stands was packed with family, fans and supporters to cheer their teams on, it was obvious Dabaris were the loudest which might have got them home in the end.

Sepik Pride were first to score in the 8th minute through backrower Micah Tom for a 4-0 lead.

Dabaris previal over Cutters

Dabaris came from behind to beat the Kimbe Cutters 16-10.

Dabaris and Cutters would share the same DNA since they both joined the PNG National Rugby League Competition in the same year, 2019.

Four years on, the rivalry continued on Sunday with Dabaris having the upper-hand over their brothers from NGI, scoring back to back tries in the second half to hand Cutters their third straight loss for the new season.
