Moresby to repay Koboni

Normal, Sports


POWERFUL Moresby will be out to settle the ledger with Koboni in NCD rules football at the Colts Ground tomorrow.
The Swans lost to the Demons by one point (7-6-48 to 7-5-47) in round one and they certainly will be in a vicious mood to avenge for that unfortunate loss.
It was champion Overa Gibson that spoilt the party for Moresby in that game with a steadied snap shot from a very acute angle in the dying minutes.
But Gibson has since then has disappeared from the scene, missing three consecutive games for some unknown reasons.
His disappearance has brought demise to the Demons, copping two consecutive losses in the past three weeks.
They lost to West by 22 points two weeks ago before going on bye the previous week and last week the Demons lost again at the hands of a much improved Dockers outfit12-6-78 to 5-4-34.
The Demons certainly have an in-house problem that has brought disrepute to the mighty club and their executives really need to amicably sort that out if they are to be considered the real premiership contenders rather than pretenders.
Moresby certainly is the team to beat for the title with a mode of consistency in their game plan this year.
They have in-form captain courageous Stan Isu firing in the forward line, kicking swags of goals every game. He obviously will be the main danger for the Koboni back men with his cousins Sebby Gelu and Zachery Rava providing support for goal-kicking duties.
The Swans also have a very elusive centreline combination comprising John Isu, Alois Baleko, Robert Lamboku, Paul Tika, John James and Francis Brown who will be readily available in the mix to provide much needed drive up forward.
Brendan Litom, Sandy Rava, Bruce Sovara and young Nathan Kalogo should come in handy to put up effective stoppers against Koboni’s Rex Leka, Lailai Ila, Vagi Lai and Colin Witlshire.
The Demons will really need to lift their game from their two previous outings if they are to reign supreme over Moresby again.
In the other game Kokofas should find KDC Dockers another tough nut to crack.
West Coast Eagles who have a bye this weekend will provide umpires (goal, boundary and central) for both matches.
