Hammerheads poised


MOROBE Hammerheads will look to wrap up the overall championship in the final round of the Kumul Petroleum Papua New Guinea Rugby Union Super Sevens Series at Sir Hubert Murray Stadium this weekend.
The final round will be a thrilling showdown as teams vie for the grand prize and winners’ trophy in Port Moresby.
Hammerheads have won the last two rounds and are leading the inaugural series.
Assistant coach Joseph Wamapiri said they were confident of claiming the championship.
“The boys have preparing for the series over the last three months,” he said.
“They dedicated themselves for training. This is evident in the results that we have produced over the last two weekends.
“So I’m hopeful for a positive outcome this weekend.”
Meanwhile, tournament director Paul Joseph said the format would remain.
“Last weekend’s winners have being categorised to lead the bottom teams in each of the pool,” he said.
“Three teams have being placed in each pool.
“We will have round-robin matches on Saturday.
“The top teams from the six pools will advance to the finals on Sunday.”
The women’s team will not compete in the inaugural series due to the tournament being cut short.
