Newly kitted Tigers defeat Tarangau in city league


SNAX Kone Tigers broke in a new set of uniforms in style with a 14-6 win over Tarangau in their Round 7 Port Moresby Rugby League match on Saturday.
The Tigers are third in the standings of the 14-team competition.
The Tigers ran out in their famous black and orange strip courtesy of major sponsor Lae Biscuit Company under the Snax banner.
The club has won four, drawn 1 and lost two to be on nine points but with a better points differential are ahead of reigning premiers Magani and Dobo Warriors.
Royals are setting the pace in the competition. The Gordon Barracks-based side gunned downed Souths 18-4 to stay on top of the ladder.
PRL chairman Dr James Naipao, pictured, appealed to clubs to ensure their teams ran out in full uniforms and not in different colours as the competition wanted to maintain a professional look.
Naipao said full uniforms meant jerseys, shorts and socks and not mix colours as witnessed recently.
